Kameron Michaels Returns To Social Media, Reveals Mental Health Diagnosis

After a long hiatus from social media, Drag Race season 10 alum Kameron Michaels made a surprise return to the internet with a special announcement.

On Friday October 20th, Kameron took to social media to reveal the reason why they disappeared from social media for almost a year. The last time Kameron made a social media post was Halloween 2022.

“It’s been a very long time since we have spoken. I think it’s been almost a year actually… so hello again,” the Drag Race star said. “I haven’t posted anything in a very long time. I wanted to share something, before I post anything else, that is very important to me and a very big deal to me. The universe is univers-ing with me feeling the need to make this video and come out. This month of all months, October is ADHD awareness month.”

He continued, “Recently, this year, this late in life, I was diagnosed with ADHD. That might not sound like a big deal to some of you, and that is very understandable, because ADHD didn’t sound like a big deal to me before I was diagnosed to me. ADHD meant like, ‘Oh, you’re hyper. You can’t focus.’ It is astronomically more complex and difficult. So I’m posting this video to let you know that I will be talking about it. It’s very important for me to do so. After my diagnosis, seeing videos of other people talking about their symptoms and how they deal with it in their day-to-day life brought me to tears. I would sit and watch videos and cry, because suddenly my brain and the way that it reacts to certain things just started to make sense. If I can post those videos and help just one other person understand themselves a little bit better... that’s all I could ask for.”

“I’m excited to be back,” Michaels noted. “I’m excited to share some things that have gone on in my life and we have a lot to catch up on. Oh my god, we have so much to talk about! And we will. But I wanted to make this video first because this is a very big deal and it will be part of my content moving forward. My neurodivergent brain is brain-ing the way that it brains. It’s not fun sometimes. Anyways, now we know. I’m excited to move forward and post some stuff for you guys again. Happy to be back. Oh, and Happy Halloween!”

This goes to show that ADHD cannot be easily identified, because we never got any hyperactive type of energy from Kameron during her stint on Drag Race.

I'm just glad Kameron was able to get their mental health under control, and found the courage to share their story with the world.
