Anxiety is a condition that can affect anyone.
It does not discriminate.
It isn’t partial.
Therefore, it is becoming much more common to hear about celebrities and anxiety disorders in the media these days.
This little monster can affect even the people you admire and envy for seemingly having the “perfect lives” (There is no such phenomenon as a perfect life, by the way).
Celebrities And Anxiety Disorders – Anxiety Can Affect Anyone
Here is a list of celebrities who have various types of anxiety disorders, yet continue to shine and advance in their respective careers.
We start off with Ariana Grande, but be sure to click on the next page to see more celebs who also deal with anxiety.
This little lady only came out with her struggles with anxiety after she endured a few emotional traumas.
The 2017 Manchester concert terrorist attack, losing her ex-boyfriend, Mac Miller, to an overdose in September 2018, and then the breakup with her fiance, Pete Davidson, shortly thereafter in October 2018 is the biggest traumas she had to go through.
Boy, that’s truly a lot to deal with in such a short span of time!
The singer showed symptoms of panic attacks after the bombings. She reported moments of feeling alarmed, dizzy, struggling to breathe and chest tightness.
She has also tweeted about her symptoms of Depersonalization.
“Felt like I was floating for like 3 months last year & not in a nice way. like I outside my body?” ~ Ariana Grande
Ms. Grande has been battling with anxiety for quite a few years now but has never come forth with this information until much later in her career.
She states she just always assumed that that was how life was supposed to be and feel like.
She started seeing a therapist for the first time from about age 10, shortly after her parent’s divorce and are now back in therapy for the most recent happenings in her life.
“I never opened up about it, because I thought that was how life was supposed to feel.” ~ Ariana Grande
She sums this all up perfectly in this next statement:
“You have ups and downs and sometimes you’ll go weeks at a time where you will be crushing it and there will be no anxiety. Then something will happen that can trigger it and then you have a couple of down days.”
AnxietyPanda is thrilled that she is undergoing therapy and that it helps her to shift her focus from the trauma to the more positive things.
She even credits her recent therapy as the reason her latest album, Sweetener, sounds somewhat different from her past works.
Seeing as she is spending more time on herself, with her thoughts, and in therapy, the album has helped her tap into her emotions more.
Therapy has transferred into her music where she also occasionally refers to her condition and the voices singing in her head.
