Gaga admits to suicidal thoughts
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.
