In a heartfelt piece written for WSJ. Magazine, Camila Cabello has opened up about her secret battle with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. The 23-year-old wrote that if you looked at her Instagram, you’d see snippets of her day to day life. “But here’s what there aren’t pictures of from the last year: me crying in the car talking to my mom about how much anxiety and how many symptoms of OCD I was experiencing,” she penned.“My mom and me in a hotel room reading books about OCD because I was desperate for relief.” The ‘Señorita’ singer added that hiding her pain didn’t heal it, and she was forced to seek help. Now the Grammy-nominated artist is sharing her story as part of Mental Health Month in the US in the hope of helping others.
“I knew I needed to take action and take ownership of the one mind and the one life I was given,” she wrote.
