“I Was Quite Literally Fighting For My Life,” Solange Opens Up About Health Struggles While Recording Her Most Recent Album

You never know what a person is going through!

Singer Solange Knowles took to Instagram to share the struggles with her health that she faced while celebrating the anniversary of her most recent album.

“2 year anniversary of the project that literally changed my life,” wrote the singer. “When I first started creating ‘When I Get Home’ I was quite literally fighting for my life … in and out of hospitals (s/out park plaza on Binz! 🙂 with depleting health and broken spirits asking God to send me a sign I would not only survive but that if he let me make it out alive, I would step into the light whatever that meant. He began speaking to me. Half the time I didn’t know where it was coming from.”

While she didn’t release the details of her latest health issues, CNN reports that in 2017, Knowles opened up about dealing with an autonomic disorder.

The Mayo Clinic reports that autonomic disorders affect the autonomic nervous system responsible for controlling a person’s involuntary functions.

“I only knew I had to open the door and honor it… I didn’t know who I was speaking to on ‘I am a witness,” continued the singer in reference to a song on the album.

“When I listen back, I hear a woman who had only an inkling of what the journey entailed, but didn’t have a clue of why or what the journey would look like,” wrote Knowles. “This project has shown me, once you open that door, you can’t go backwards.”

The “Cranes in The Sky” singer released a remastered director’s cut of the art film, “When I Get Home” in honor of its two-year anniversary on Tuesday (March 2).
