Following that video, Janna opened up about the fact that she suffers from bipolar. Bipolar disorder, also known as manic depression, is a mental illness that brings severe high and low moods and changes in sleep, energy, thinking, and behaviour. People who have bipolar disorder can have periods in which they feel overly happy and energized and other periods of feeling very sad, hopeless, and sluggish.  As a result, Janna decided to take a break from social media. The 26-year-old went on to say that she would occasionally hear voices in her head, but assumed that it was a common experience. It’s when she started taking antidepressants that she realized these occurrences were not normal.


“Imagine when I’m alone, not doing anything, but there are 5,6 voices in my head giving me ideas for work. This is the false reality that I created to make it look like I’m happy and have a perfect life”

The ‘Marry Me Senorita’ star added, despite being exhausted with work, she forces herself to continue in order to put food on the table for her and her family. Janna emphasized that she just wants a normal life like everyone else where she can rest and spend time on herself, but unfortunately, she can’t live that dream since her life is ‘controlled’ by her busy career. However, she has pledged that she will try to heal.
