Gaga ad­mits to sui­ci­dal thoughts

Calgary Herald - - YOU -

Lady Gaga can­didly talked about her strug­gles with men­tal health and sui­ci­dal thoughts as she ac­cepted an hon­our from the SAG-AFTRA Foun­da­tion on Thurs­day night. “I would see flashes of things I was tor­mented by, ex­pe­ri­ences that were filed away in my brain as ‘I will deal with you later’ for many years be­cause my brain was pro­tect­ing me as sci­ence teaches us ... This later mor­phed into phys­i­cal chronic pain, fi­bromyal­gia, panic at­tacks, acute trauma re­sponses and de­bil­i­tat­ing men­tal spi­rals that have in­cluded sui­ci­dal ideation and masochis­tic be­hav­iour.” The 32-year-old con­cluded by say­ing she wished she had the foun­da­tion when she 19 years old so she could have used their re­sources. She pledged to make a do­na­tion to the or­ga­ni­za­tion and part­ner with them via her Born This Way Foun­da­tion to build men­tal health ini­tia­tives.
