Lady Gaga Has a Mental Problem?
Lady Gaga revealed in December 2014 that she was raped at 19. This mortifying experience caused her to suffer from PTSD, which has practically altered her lifestyle. The pop star exposed everything in an open letter on her Born This Way Foundation website.
"It is a daily effort for me, even during this album cycle, to regulate my nervous system so that I don’t panic over circumstances that, to many, would seem like normal life situations," she wrote. "Examples are leaving the house or being touched by strangers who simply want to share their enthusiasm for my music."
"The experiences of performing night after night in mental and physical pain ingrained in me a trauma that I relive when I see or hear things that remind me of those days."
