“For the longest time, I didn’t understand why I felt so sick,” Rexha wrote. “Why I felt lows that made me not want to leave my house or be around people, and why I felt highs that wouldn’t let me sleep, wouldn’t let me stop working or creating music. Now I know why.”

The “Meant to Be” singer said telling the world more about her struggles will allow her to take her music in a new direction.

“The next album will be my favorite album ever because I’m not holding anything back,” Rexha said. “I love you all very much. And I hope you accept me as I am."
