“I am being very honest about drinking to numb my pain but that is just a way a lot of people mask what is really going on,” she continued. “Sometimes it is too hard to cope with all the emotions I feel. But the problem has never been about sex or alcohol — it is underneath all that.”
Brown has said she hopes to shed more light on PTSD. In fact, on Sunday she shared a link to a website that explores the condition, she tweeted “Knowledge is power.”

I don’t want to jinx it, but so far it’s really helping me,” Mel B told The Sun. “I’m not perfect, and I have never pretended to be. But I am working on being a better version of myself for my kids – whom I love more than life itself – and for all the people who have supported me.”
