Ariana Grande reveals PTSD after Manchester attack

Ariana has spoken openly in the past about suffering from PTSD and anxiety following the terrorist attack at the end of her concert in Manchester.

On Thursday, Ariana took to Instagram to share a scanned image highlighting the difference between a healthy brain, a brain dealing with post traumatic stress disorder and the third one was a a scan of Ariana's own brain.

As she puts it, her brain scan reveals the "hilarious and terrifying" levels of PTSD she has. One image showed a side-by-side comparison between a "healthy" brain scan and a "PTSD" brain.

The Boca Raton pop singer shared brain scans to highlight how her brain has been affected by the terrorist act at her London concert two years ago that killed almost two dozen people. The PTSD brain scan has more areas highlighted, indicating the differences in brain activity in PTSD patients.

It's unclear when the scans were taken, but the 25-year-old Grammy victor has been open about dealing with severe trauma following the 2017 terror attack that occurred at her concert in Manchester, England. The singer told British Vogue last June that even her "anxiety has anxiety" after the blast, which claimed at least 22 lives and injured scores of people. I know those families and fans, and everyone there experienced a tremendous amount of it as well'. Time is the biggest thing. I've always had anxiety" she said. For example, hypervigilance. It's noticing everything and constantly scanning my environment; being alert even when I'm trying to sleep - it's depleting and it never stops.
