Halsey is letting fans know they may need to take some time off.

In a new post shared to their Instagram Story On Sunday, the 27-year-old singer opened up about potentially needing to scale back their workload due to ongoing health complications related to endometriosis.

“I have been in and out of the hospital for the past few weeks dealing with some new challenges. Trying my best to keep things normal; Grammys, Coachella etc.” read the caption, posted alongside a selfie of Halsey holding up a peace sign while laying in bed.

“But my body is putting up a strong protest. And ultimately demanding that I slow down or stop foreal this time. Especially so I can be in the best shape for tour.”

“Today I braved multiple terrifying surgeries,” wrote the singer. “The most important of which being the surgery that would hopefully treat my endometriosis. For those of you who have followed this battle of mine or who may suffer with it yourself, you know the extremes to which it can be mentally exhausting and physically painful. “

“I’m in total agony right now… (and I’m going to be in excruciating pain for a while cause I had quite the cocktail of procedures today),” continued their post. “In my recovery I am thinking of all of you and how you give me the strength and stamina to power through and prosper.”

“If you suffer from chronic pain or a debilitating disease please know that I have found time to live a crazy, wild, rewarding life AND balance my treatment and I hope so much in my heart that you can too,” they concluded.
