She appeared on American chat show ‘The Talk’ on Wednesday (October 18th) to discuss her battle, which began in her teens but continued into her early thirties. At the time, she felt it was just "growing pains" but it took years for her to figure out what the truth was.

Kelly Rowland was lost at sea this week. Literally.
In one of the most bizarre stories coming out of the music world this year, former Destiny's Child singer Kelly Rowland had to be saved by Massachusetts coast guards on Friday (July 19, 2013) when her boat ran into difficulty off the coast of Provincetown.
Rowland and friends had boarded a private craft to go whale watching, though their vessel became "disoriented in the five-to-six-foot waves and fog that had rolled in," an employee for the TowboatUS Provincetown confirmed to E! News.
Eventually, the US Coast Guard was "able to triangulate their position" after learning that the group needed help. More drama was yet to come when the groups' boat broke down while being escorted back to shore. The party had to be towed the remaining four miles, eventually arriving back on land around 10pm after 12 hours at sea.
