A year ago, Halsey opened up about her struggle with her diagnosis. Endometriosis is a disease that causes inflammation near the uterus and therefore it also causes pelvic pain, fatigue, nausea and possibly even infertility. Halsey could tell there was something wrong, but was often told she was just “being a baby” about having her period.
When she was finally diagnosed with endometriosis, she called the experience “bittersweet” because it meant she wasn’t just making things up or being weak–she had a real condition that was causing her pain.
She reached out on Twitter to let people know she was there for her fans if they had similar experiences.

Now, she’s boldly posted about her struggle yet again, this time from a hospital bed.
Today I braved multiple terrifying surgeries. The most important of which being the surgery that would hopefully treat my endometriosis. For those of you who have followed this battle of mine or who may suffer with it yourself, you know the extremes to which it can be mentally exhausting and physically painful. OK HONESTLY I’m in total agony right now ???????????? (and I’m going to be in excruciating pain for a while cause I had quite the cocktail of procedures today). But in my recovery I am thinking of all of you and how you give me the strength and stamina to power through and prosper. If you suffer from chronic pain or a debilitating disease please know that I have found time to live a crazy, wild, rewarding life AND balance my treatment and I hope so much in my heart that you can too. I’m gonna be off the map for a few days but please know even if I’m not on social media I am thinking of you. #endowarrior #endometriosis ????????????????????????
