See, her brain images were lit up brighter than the one showing PTSD activity.

Cape Town - Ariana Grande has given fans a glimpse of just how severe her PTSD has been following a suspected terror attack at her concert in Manchester in 2017.

The "Thank U, Next" singer, 25, shared a photo of her brain scan compared to a healthy brain and a brain with PTSD on Thursday, calling the comparison "hilarious and terrifying".

Grande revealed how she was struggling with anxiety and the effects of PTSD in the wake of the bombing.

"It's hard to talk about because so many people have suffered such severe, tremendous loss", she said in an interview with Vogue.

"I know those families and my fans, and everyone there experienced a tremendous amount of it as well", Grande said of suffering the symptoms of PTSD.


Speaking to British Vogue previous year, she explained the impact the socking event had on her.

Two years after the terrorist attack on her Manchester concert.

"I just wanted to say hi and remind you guys to protect your peace and your energy and to not forget to take care of yourselves and protect your space", she said, speaking directly to the camera. "I don't think I'll ever know how to talk about it and not cry", she continued.

"When I got home from tour, I had really wild dizzy spells, this feeling like I couldn't breathe". I've always had anxiety. "I would be in a good mood, fine and happy, and they would hit me out of nowhere", she told Elle. "There were a couple months straight where I felt so upside down". The bomb killed 22 people and injured dozens of others.

"Imaging studies have shown dysfunction in the amygdala, hippocampus, and prefrontal cortex in the brains of people who have PTSD", Talia Wiesel, PhD, assistant professor of psychiatry at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, tells Health.
