During an episode of R.ob Have A PodcastAustralian singer-songwriter Sia surprised everyone by revealing that a couple of years ago she was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder.
According to the National Institute of Mental Health, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a neurological and developmental disorder that affects the way people interact with others, communicate, learn, and behave.
According to information from People, On May 25, Rob Cesternino had as a guest at his podcast to Carolyn Wiger, Season 44 Finalist of survivorwhen at one point in the talk the singer Sia also appeared online, who is a superfan of the reality of competition to give a very special surprise to Carolyn, although she also took the opportunity to express how it was that she received a late diagnosis of autism.
I’m on the spectrum, I’m in recovery, and whatever… there are a lot of things. For 45 years, I thought, ‘I’ve got to go put on my human suit.’ And only in the last two years have I become completely, completely myself.
It seems that now that she has a diagnosis, the 47-year-old also a writer finally has things much clearer, although she also spoke without problem about her fight against addictions, since she is a recovering alcoholic, but in the groups of help has found the support it needs to get by every day.
No one can know and love you when you are full of secrets and living in shame. And when we finally sit in a room full of strangers and tell them our deepest, darkest, most embarrassing secrets, and they all laugh with us, and we don’t feel like trash for the first time in our lives, and we feel seen for the first time in our lives for who we really are, then we can start going out into the world and operating as human beings with hearts, and pretending to be nothing.
It’s admirable that some stars are publicly admitting to these kinds of conditions, as this can certainly help encourage more people to seek help.
