Australian singer Sia has been transparent about her health journey, revealing that she has been diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder.
The diagnosis was given to her two years ago, but she chose to speak about it publicly only now. Sia faced criticism for her film Music, with some individuals expressing concerns about its portrayal of mental disabilities.
Sia shared that she had been concealing her true self until recently and stressed the importance of embracing honesty and shedding the burden of shame.
Currently, she is undergoing treatment, and doctors have observed positive progress. Actor Brendan Fraser, who also has a son with autism, has openly discussed his family’s experiences. Initially, he blamed himself but has since gained a deeper understanding.
