Some two months after seeking treatment following an emotional breakdown in hospital, Selena Gomez is looking happy and relaxed in first pics of her since the unhappy episode.
Posing with friends Connar Franklin and actress Bailee Madison, the 26-year-old singer looked like she was enjoying her time in the snowy climes of Big Bear in California.
People has reported that sources have said that Selena is, “feeling much better,” and is now, “looking forward to getting back to normalcy.”
They have also confirmed that Selena, who was hospitalised twice in October, was now “spending time with friends and family.”
Both times that she was admitted for treatment following a low white blood cell count.
It was during the second time that Selena was taken in to hospital that she had a panic attack which triggered an emotional breakdown.
Selena headed to a treatment centre on the east coast and the source said she, “has had a tough few weeks.”
The hospital visit and subsequent panic attack was enough to tip Selena over the edge.
Last year, Selena underwent a kidney transplant, as she continued to battle with lupus and this led her to have dialectical behavior therapy.
This is a way of identifying and then changing negative thinking and behavioral patterns.
Since September, Selena has been on a self-enforced break from social media, leaving her 144 million followers without an update for almost threee months.
At the time, she posted a selfie and wrote: “As much as I am grateful for the voice that social media gives each of us, I am equally grateful to be able to step back and live my life present to the moment I have been given. Kindness and encouragement only for a bit! Just remember— negative comments can hurt anybody’s feelings. Obv.”
This return to Instagram, albeit as a tagged party on someone else’s post, is proof that Selena is heading on the right path to recovery and that hanging with friends is helping her live again.
