AceShowbiz - Halsey has opened up about her serious health issue that led her to suffering from three miscarriages and having had four surgeries. The 24-year-old singer, who in the past had talked about her on-stage miscarriage and her struggle with endometriosis, shared more details about her struggles with the chronic illness on Twitter.
"I have endometriosis. I've had 3 miscarriages, 4 surgeries, pretty much in pain every day of my life and I've donated/raised upwards of $300,000 in the name of research and support," she wrote in a series of now-deleted tweets on Sunday, March 24. "I'm not trying to be quirky. Or different. I'm just trying to normalize an underdiscussed illness."
The "Without You" hitmaker also responded to those who complained that she's "always sick." She addressed it with a little humor, "me, with a chronic illness, staring into the camera like I'm on the office."

She went on claiming, "I'm a pretty competent individual. But I'm a whole entire idiot when I'm sick. You don't understand the true meaning of 'im baby' till u see this s**t. I need to retire from life."

After she revealed about her three miscarriages, people expressed their sympathy to Halsey. "Oh god I only knew about the one miscarriage, I'm so sorry," one fan wrote. Another added, "I never knew Halsey had 3 miscarriages omfg I'm so sorry that happened to her, my heart breaks for the idol I love so much to end up having to explain about her difficult times."
Halsey first revealed she suffered from endometriosis in January 2016. She tweeted at the time, "If any of my fans or followers have #endometriosis having a rough time today. laying in bed thinking of you." Saying she knew how "excruciating painful it can be," she shared, "I was recently diagnosed after years of suffering and finding myself doubled over backstage in the middle of my sets."
"Finding out that I had endo was the most bittersweet moment because it meant I wasn't crazy!" she added. "I wasn't a baby. I had every right to be feeling like the world was caving in. But it was terrifying to find out."
She also talked about her condition on "The Doctors" in 2018. "I think doctors can tend to minimize, you know the female experience when it comes to dealing with it," she said. "My whole life, my mother had always told me, 'Women in our family just have really bad periods.' "
But her condition got more serious while she was busy touring and performing at concerts. "I was fainting all the time," she continued. "And I got misdiagnosed with chronic fatigue, with anxiety, they were telling me I was fainting because I was anxious."
