post-traumatic stress disorder

Ariana Grande reveals that she has suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in light of the Manchester attacks.

Just over a year later, she opened up to British Vogue about the aftermath of the fateful night. 

The singer said she felt guilty for having the disorder due to the 22 people who lost their lives after her concert.

"It’s hard to talk about because so many people have suffered such severe, tremendous loss. But, yeah, it’s a real thing," said the 24-year-old.

Ariana continued to explain that she can't even talk about that night without crying.

"I know those families and my fans, and everyone there experienced a tremendous amount of it as well. Time is the biggest thing.

'I feel like I shouldn’t even be talking about my own experience—like I shouldn’t even say anything. I don’t think I’ll ever know how to talk about it and not cry,” she added.

On May 22, 2017, sadly 22 people lost their lives and a further 59 were injured when the singer's concert was targeted by terrorists. 

To mark the one year anniversary of the incident, the pop-star took to Twitter saying: 

"Thinking of you all today and every day I love you with all of me and am sending you all of the light and warmth I have to offer on this challenging day."

The artist also honoured the victims by getting a tattoo of the bee, which has been a symbol for Manchester since the 1800s and gained popularity after the attacks.

The bee was often seen along with slogans "we stand together", "no fear here", and "unity is strength". 



We're pretty much addicted to our phones.

So, when recent research found that removing phones from young people gives them stress, it's not that shocking.

OK… so we shouldn't have anxiety similar to a post-traumatic stress patient, but it's understandable for us to be a little off without our Androids by our side.

Other generations might think this is ridiculous, but we're the generation that grew up with our mobiles constantly in our pockets.

A smartphone isn't only a phone to us; it's an alarm, it's a calendar, it's a diary, a phonebook… We have the Internet, emails, texts, calls, music and more all in one bundle. 

Yes, it may be bad that our lives are basically in our phones; but, that's just the way it is – and it's probably not going to change.

While some may think that we only use our phones for Facebook or playing Kim Kardashian's game; that couldn't be further from the truth.

We make business contacts, we organise meetings, we talk to our friends who are abroad, we keep up with our interests.

According to the Metro, the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and the Eotvos Lorand University in Budapest conducted the research which consisted of 87 people aged between 18 and 26.

The scientists took away their phones and locked them in a cupboard, which obviously caused a little panic.

The researchers write, "The results support that humans form attachment toward their mobile: they seek the proximity of the mobile and show stress response upon separation."

Some people separated from their phones displayed a heart rhythm associated with post-traumatic stress disorder.

The author wrote that were "poor, poor snowflakes." *Sighs*

A phone is a material thing, so we shouldn't be that stressed out when separated from it. 

BUT, it's 2017 and taking into account the way we grew up… we're not 'poor, poor snowflakes'; we're just living in a world that is constantly on the go.

And we don't want to miss out.
