Selena Gomez once again admitted to mental health facility following an emotional breakdown due to depression and anxiety. The reason for her reported meltdown was low white blood cell count, a side effect of a kidney transplant, which Selena had in 2017. She was reportedly hospitalized twice within the last few weeks for a low white blood cell count. She is reportedly getting all the help she needed and her health is progressing slowly.
Selena has been giving more effort to remain focused and not let her health affect her mentally. To overcome it, she has been actively writing new music, and even moved to Orange County for a change of pace and a fresh breath of air, according to other sources. However, the change in her life, her health issues, and love life have once again resulted in an emotional breakdown.
The 26-year old singer has been through a rough couple of years. A couple of years back, Selena was diagnosed with Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), simply known as lupus. It is an autoimmune disease in which the body's immune system mistakenly attacks healthy tissue in many parts of the body. Selena even spent 90 days in a mental facility to learn to cope with the issues related to her lupus.
Later in 2017, Selena underwent a kidney transplant in 2017. Her actress friend Francia Raisa donated her a kidney. During the transplant, Selena broke an artery. Emergency surgery was conducted to build a new artery using a vein from her leg. Since then, Selena is trying hard to keep herself focused on her work.
She also announced this September that she is taking an official social media break and take some time to recover from mental health issues.
