The 30 year old singer spoke about her health issues during a
Today segment that aired Monday.
She said “I told the kids today, ‘I suffer from PTSD.’ I’ve never
told anyone that before,” Gaga said. “So here we are. But the
kindness that’s shown to me by doctors as well as my family
and my friends, it’s really saved my life.”
Lady Gaga said in a December 2014 interview with Howard
Stern that she had been raped early in her career.
“You know, I went through some horrific things,” she told
Stern. “I’m able to laugh now because I’ve gone through a lot
of mental and physical therapy and emotional therapy to heal
over the years. My music’s been wonderful for me. But, you
know, I was a shell of my former self at one point. I was not
myself. To be fair, I was about 19 … I went to Catholic school,
and then all this crazy stuff happened, and I was going, ‘Oh, is
this just the way adults are?’”
