More celebrities should have their heads examined.

In an interview with British Vogue in June last year, Ariana said her PTSD is “a real thing”.

It’s hard to talk about because so many people have suffered such severe, tremendous loss … I know those families and my fans, and everyone there experienced a tremendous amount of [PTSD] as well. I feel like I shouldn’t even be talking about my own experience – like I shouldn’t even say anything. I don’t think I’ll ever know how to talk about it and not cry.

On Thursday, she shared a screenshot to her Instagram storyshowing a scan of her brain, which appears to show a number of areas affected by PTSD.

Many, if not most, “mental” health issues have a physical root cause in the brain structure. All the talk and all the suicide-inducing dope in the world will not begin to address it.

The place to start is with a neurologist. Have a brain scan. Then, several treatments show great promise for many cases. There’s the newer wonder of Transcranial Magnetic Therapy and the good old help of lithium.

It’s all in the head the same way a broken bone is all in the arm.

I’ve never listened to anything this young woman has said or sang but I do wish her the best with this.
