Nothing can keep Mariah Carey down, not even a dislocated shoulder. The diva opened up to her fans today about her painful injury which she calls “the toughest experience of my life.”

“The last three months of my life have not been easy. Getting through this injury has been the toughest experience of my life. It took me three months to get to this point but thank God I was able to recover and get my arm back,” she posted on Facebook. “It’s been a long journey, the physical therapists have been incredible and I am very grateful to all of them for helping me,” the healing singer added.

In July, Mimi dislocated her shoulder while filming a music video with Young Jeezy. Her rep told Us Weekly in a statement: “Mariah injured herself while filming a video with Jeezy for the remix of #Beautiful, directed by her husband Nick Cannon. She was taken to hospital late last night, where doctors reset her shoulder. She is fine.” Nick later called the incident “pretty serious.”

The injury has added to the delay of Mariah’s upcoming album, but the songstress promises that the wait will be well worth it. “This is, to me, one of the most important albums I’ve ever made in my life,” she writes on Facebook.
