London, June 5 (IANS) Singer Ariana Grande says she is battling post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) following the ­Manchester attack.
Grande found herself at the center of tragedy on May 22 last year when an improvised explosive device was detonated outside her concert at the Manchester Arena, killing 23 people and injuring 250.
In an interview with British Vogue, she has revealed how she was coping with the symptoms of PTSD, reports eonline.com.
"I hate...yeah...admitting it but it very much is," she said when asked if the dizziness and anxiety Grande faced when she got home were signs of PTSD.
"That's what everyone was telling me. It's hard to talk about because so many people have suffered such severe, tremendous loss. But, yeah, it's a real thing. I know those families and my fans, and everyone there experienced a tremendous amount of it as well.
"Time is the biggest thing," the star added.
"I feel like I shouldn't even be talking about my own experience...like I shouldn't even say anything. I don't think I'll ever know how to talk about it and not cry."
While she finds it difficult to reflect on the bombing, Grande said she does often "check in" on Twitter with Millie Robson, who was left with shrapnel in her legs.
"I think a lot of people have anxiety, especially right now, my anxiety has anxiety," Grande told the magazine.
"No. I've always had anxiety. I've never really spoken about it because I thought everyone had it, but when I got home from tour it was the most severe I think it's ever been."
