Mariah Carey 'uplifted' by bipolar disorder announcement support

Mariah Carey has thanked those who have supported her since she opened up about her struggle with Bipolar II Disorder which she revealed in the latest issue of The People.

Taking to Instagram (see below), she wrote: 'I've been hard at work, feeling inspired by each of your stories and uplifted by your overwhelming support.

'Let's continue to encourage each other on our journeys.”

She had told The People:'Until recently I lived in denial and isolation and in constant fear someone would expose me.' 

“It was too heavy a burden to carry and I simply couldn’t do that anymore. I sought and received treatment, I put positive people around me and I got back to doing what I love — writing songs and making music.”

Those with Bipolar II Disorder suffer from at least one episdoe of severe depression and also symptoms of hypomania.
