Lady Gaga has slammed British talk show host Piers Morgan over his outrageous claims on Twitter that she’s lying about having PTSD.
“It angers me when celebrities start claiming ‘PTSD’ about everything to promote themselves,” Piers wrote on Twitter. He continued to question both Lady Gaga and Madonna’s rape allegations, and the subsequent PTSD they have said they face.
According to the MayoClinic.com, Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that’s triggered by a terrifying event — either experiencing it or witnessing it. Symptoms may include flashbacks, nightmares and severe anxiety, as well as uncontrollable thoughts about the event.
Lady Gaga wrote a powerful letter about her battle with PTSD.
“I have wrestled for some time about when, how and if I should reveal my diagnosis of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). After five years of searching for the answers to my chronic pain and the change I have felt in my brain, I am finally well enough to tell you. There is a lot of shame attached to mental illness, but it’s important that you know that there is hope and a chance for recovery,” Gaga wrote in a post on the Born This Way Foundation website.
“It is a daily effort for me, even during this album cycle, to regulate my nervous system so that I don’t panic over circumstances that to many would seem like normal life situations. Examples are leaving the house or being touched by strangers who simply want to share their enthusiasm for my music,” she added.
I come from a big military family.
