The past of Selena Gomez
The actress’s depression, as we said, worsened in 2017 following the transplant. But already in 2013 Selena Gomez eclipsed herself from the scenes to cure lupus through chemotherapy sessions, which then led her to have mental problems. In 2016, she took a leave of absence to deal with the anxiety, panic and depression crises caused by her battle against lupus.
In 2018 she ended up still in a rehabilitation clinic for a nervous breakdown caused by two hospitalizations for her health. Therefore no one can care about those who suffer from these diseases anymore.
