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". "Not a joke." In the picture, the "PTSD brain" has several highlighted areas, where the other picture hardly shows any outlines. Despite the image being in black and white, you can clearly see Grande's brain scan and the multitude of highlighted areas it has which is nearly double the amount of what she previously shared.

Grande revealed how she was struggling with anxiety and the effects of PTSD in the wake of the bombing. She then posted four shots of her brain with multiple areas lit up, similar to the one showing PTSD.

She was diagnosed with PTSD a few months after a man walked into the Manchester Arena and detonated a bomb which killed 22 people and injured many more.

Last year Ariana opened up about how the horrific ordeal has affected her, telling Vogue in 2018: "It's hard to talk about because so many people have suffered such severe, tremendous loss. But, yeah, it's a real thing", she said past year of how she's coped with symptoms of PTSD.

She told the publication: "I hate... yeah...admitting it but it very much is". But, yeah, it's a real thing. I know those families and fans, and everyone there experienced a tremendous amount of it as well'. "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".
