Ariana Grande Shares Her Brain Scan to Show What PTSD 'Looks Like'

This is Ariana Grande’s brain on PTSD. ‘Not a joke,’ she says

On Thursday, Ariana took to Instagram to share a scanned image highlighting the difference between a healthy brain, a brain dealing with post traumatic stress disorder and the third one was a a scan of Ariana's own brain.

Ari's brain scan has a lot of such highlighted areas to the point that it seems like it's almost double what she'd previously shown.

Cape Town - Ariana Grande has given fans a glimpse of just how severe her PTSD has been following a suspected terror attack at her concert in Manchester in 2017. The image compared a healthy brain, a brain with PTSD and her brain. The PTSD brain scan has more areas highlighted, indicating the differences in brain activity in PTSD patients.

She is a bonafide pop star, but Ariana Grande is not afraid to open up and speak about mental health awareness.

She was diagnosed with PTSD a few months after a man walked into the Manchester Arena and detonated a bomb which killed 22 people and injured many more.

"Not a joke", she added.

Other mental health problems can arise as a result of PTSD. It is hard to talk about because many people have suffered such severe, tremendous loss.

Last June, the singer-songwriter candidly spoke about her anxiety and "signs of PTSD" with British Vogue."I hate...yeah...admitting it but it very much is", she told the publication.

She went on to say, "I've always had anxiety". I know those families and fans, and everyone there experienced a tremendous amount of it as well'. "I don't think I'll ever know how to talk about it and not cry", she continued.
