Ariana Grande’s brain scan shows ’frightening’ levels of PTSD after Manchester Bombings

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.

Ariana Grande posted the scan of her brain on Instagram Stories to show the full extent the terrorist attack at her Manchester concert in 2017 has had on her mental health.

She noted, "hilarious and terrifying" and PTSD is "not a joke".

In the text thread, she first shows her pals a comparison of a "healthy brain" alongside the brain of someone who suffers PTSD.

Displayed in the photo are two side-by-side brain scans that show what a "healthy brain" and "PTSD brain" look like. In an interview with Elle magazine a year ago, the singer opened up about having episodes of "wild dizzy spells" and physical anxiety that nearly prevented her from performing again. I know those families and fans, and everyone there experienced a tremendous amount of it as well'. I feel like I shouldn't even be talking about my own experience-like I shouldn't even say anything. "You think with time it'll become easier to talk about. I've always had anxiety" she said. Since then the singer has been open and honest about her mental health to her millions of followers.

"When I got home from tour, I had really wild dizzy spells, this feeling like I couldn't breathe". 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.
