According to a Journal of Neural Engineering study from 2010, an imaging technique called magnetoencephalography (MEG) can show the discrepancies in a brain with PTSD and one without-but that isn't the only type of imaging that can detect PTSD.

Ariana Grande shared a screenshot of a text message with her friends to show fans just how bad her case of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder really is.

The 25-year-old pop star posted the scans of her own brain alongside scans of a "healthy brain" and one that suffers from PTSD to her Instagram stories on Thursday, Fox News reported. Although Ariana was able to get out safely, the attack obviously had a huge affect on her.


She captioned the image, "Hilarious and terrifying. But, yeah, it's a real thing", she told Vogue previous year about the incident. Ariana tried to help Mac with his addiction struggles while they were together for more than a year, so it hit her hard to know that he had passed while still battling those demons.

"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.

"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've always had anxiety, but it had never been physical before".


Complaining of dizziness since the attack, she added: "That's what everyone was telling me. There were a couple of months straight where I felt so upside down". The bomb killed 22 people and injured dozens of others.

The celeb assured people that she will continue to give her all and put energy and passion in her work 'even tho my brain looks like the world map'.
