I'm staying optimistic: Carey on her mental health
Pop diva Mariah Carey says she is overcoming her bipolar II diagnosis by having an "optimistic" outlook.
The 'Hero' hitmaker revealed in April that she is suffering from bipolar II and is taking medication and having therapy to alleviate the condition.
''The thing that some people don't realise, before all this started, we are all just people. Everybody has their own stuff that they deal with, grew up dealing with, just any type of adversity that you have to overcome. We all go through things and that's part of life". "The main thing is to stay hopeful and optimistic, I think," she added.
Carey said during an interview on UK TV show 'Lorraine'.
The singer said she was overwhelmed by all the support she received from her fans all over the world when she took the decision to go public with her bipolar, seventeen years after she was first diagnosed.
