Ariana Grande is asking fans to calm down.

The “7 Rings” singer gave her Arianators a bit of a scare recently when she published a brain scan she had recently had.

In her Instagram Story, the 25-year-old compared images of a normal, healthy brain and that of her own, which showed that she had suffered majorly from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

The PTSD followed the devastating attack at Manchester Arena in 2017, where 22 people died during her concert as a result of a suicide bomber.

After revealing what she termed the “hilarious and terrifying” effects of PTSD, she wrote another message to her fans, apologizing for giving them a fright.

“Didn’t mean to startle anyone with my brain thingy,” Ariana wrote in another Instagram Story. “It just blew me away. I found it informative and interesting and wanted to encourage ya’ll to make sure you check on your brains / listen to your bodies / take care of yourselves too. I love science and seeing the physical reality of what’s going on in there was incredible to me. I mean, I feel it all the time, but seeing it is totally different and super cool. Someday, when I’m feeling ready or when I’m more healed up, we can talk more about it. I am constantly working on my health / learning how to process pain (aren’t we all). Everyday is different but I’m doing my best.”

Good luck, Ari.
