Social Media Hiatus Helped Selena Gomez Focus on Her Lupus Battle

Social Media Hiatus Helped Selena Gomez Focus on Her Lupus Battle

Selena Gomez’s intent of concentrating on recovering from lupus has been facilitated by her recurrent break from using social media.

The 26-year-old singer has emphasized continuously her need to step away from using Instagram in order to concentrate on various health issues she has been combating against.

These wellness concerns have been the offshoots of her struggle against lupus, which she was diagnosed with in 2014.

Gomez has been candid in communicating with Selenators – her followers – regarding her well-being.

Upon learning about her serious ailment five years ago, she shared that her condition has put her at the brink of suffering from a stroke.

The former partner of singing sensation, Justin Bieber, expressed that, in 2016, she had to enter a Tennessee-based rehabilitation facility.

This was due to depression, panic attacks, and anxiety that consequentially entailed her grave immune system-related sickness.

The “Naturally” singer said that she needed to temporarily cease using her cellphone as she took part in individual, class, and equine healing sessions.

Lupus complications have continued to bedevil Gomez which required her to undergo a kidney transplant in 2017.

Through her best friend, Francia Raisa’s assistance, as well as meditation, healthy eating, therapy concentration, and Pilates, Gomez survived throughout 2018.

However, her mental health concerns prevailed as she faced her on-and-off relationship with Bieber, who is now married to model Hailey Rhode Baldwin-Bieber.

Gomez emphasized the benefits of kindness, encouragement, and shunning negative comments to her social media-savvy fans.

The singer-actress continued to grapple against intense feelings of being sensitive and hopeless as she faced low white blood cell count.

This critical problem brought about by her lupus disease required her to check in at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles late last year.

To better respond to the negative happenings in her life, the “Fly to Your Heart” singer had to stop engaging with her social media account to focus on wholesome communication patterns and mindfulness.

On Monday, after nearly four months of absence on Instagram, Gomez posted black-and-white images of herself. She captioned it with greetings to her followers as 2019 has recently started.

Gomez also fondly expressed her gratitude to her fanbase for their unwavering affection and support.

As always, the singer-actress has honestly communicated about her tough uphill climb of battling lupus, depression, and anxiety.

In her latest Instagram images now with over 4 million “likes,” she noted that she is “proud of the person I am becoming” and that she is moving forward with the New Year.
