CHRIS BROWN Diagnosed with Bi-Polar, Order to Stay in Rehab. Before We Go Judging & Labeling, in Layman Terms -Let’s Talk About it

It’s no secret that Chris Brown has been in rehab since October 29, 2013 and while in, has been behaving appropriately, doing normal things like attending toy drives for charity, and even stepped out on the scene-still staying out of trouble.

th (29) We also blogged the story that the big long-awaited court date that he was waiting on stemming from an incident where allegedly and altercation ensued while in D.C in April of last year which as a result of (and Brown’s Rihanna omen and dark cloud over his life and head), almost cost him his freedom.

Well, as a last ditch effort and last resort of having to face issues likes such that (unlike regular people of the world) the courts have this clause where (if you can afford it/afford to pay the right lawyer), then you can go to rehab (for anger management, drug use, making a left turn when it should have been a right turn-all kinds of sh!t like that). It actually looks/is better for you if you do [check yourself into a rehabilitation facility].

th (31) Well, Chris took advantage of that option and it actually turned out to work well for him.

th (32) And when he showed up for the big court date earlier this month (that ultimately was to decide his fate of freedom), he was spared…BUT instead of being released (from rehab) just yet, ordered to maintain med treatment and continue his stay at the rehab facility.

SIDE NOTE in SUCCESSION: Since then however, [and because Chris was found not-guilt of the D.C incident], the gentleman (Christopher Hollosy) involved filed suit for (some millions-I haven’t the exact amount on hand).

Other Side of the Fame doesn’t know how that’s working out for him, but we will keep you up to date on the details if or when we find out G’s on that issue.

At any rate.

chris brown in court  Chris Brown once again, had to face the judge again-yesterday in L.A where the rehab facility he is residing in reported + confirmed that Brown has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, severe insomnia, and PTSD-an acronym for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder-stating (in his defense and to serve as an explanation for his past behaviors dually noted and well-known…):  “Mr. Brown became aggressive and acted out physically due to his untreated mental health disorder: sleep deprivation, inappropriate self-medicating and untreated PTSD” said the facility (in a letter).

th (27)  It continues: “Mr. Brown’s attitude has been beyond exemplary in regard to his community service responsibilities.”

th (28) It should also be noted that in the letter, the facility asserts that Brown, 24, has tested negative for drugs during the entire time of his stay and has been put on medication for all his three of his conditions [PTSD, sleep deprivation, bi-polar] and as well, was ordered (by the courts) to remain in rehab for two more months.

th (30)  Before you start blogging (reading blogs, or gossip[ing] about the guy regarding this recent news of his conditions, understand that although it is a stigma-in that people hate, shun, make fun of (or even would even have the nerve to write blogs about issues like such that they themselves don’t even understand-simply for attention and reads/to sound profound); mental health is too serious a matter to play with, laugh about-and especially blog about…

As having been a student of psychology, and other social, arts, and sciences; bi-polar (although sometimes associated with other mental disorder like schizophrenia etc), bi-polar is NOT schizophrenia, a form of schizophrenia or in the schizotypal family of diagnoses at all. People diagnosed with bi-polar (and no schizotypal disorders with it do NOT walk around playing dress-up and talking to themselves).

For starters, bi-polar disorder is FORMERLY known as manic depressive.

To explain it in Layman terms, bi-polar (alone) is a condition in which a chemical imbalance in the brain causes one to have high-highs and/or low-lows for which (without medication) they cannot handle/control because the high-highs, and/or the low-lows’ activities and things brought on by either can happen impulsively-without thought or contemplation. And in addition to that (for the high-high): if stimulated or provoked. 

Whereas the average person without bi-polar disorder may be able to pin-point exactly why they are feeling so “high”/on top of the world/adventurous, or over-stimulated etc., someone with bi-polar disorder does not. They just: DO, or ACT (on it) sex, speeding in cars, fighting/violent behaviors, spontaneous shopping sprees/spending carelessly etc. Although those may seem like “normal” things we may do (if provoked or feeling the urge to), for someone bi-polar, they are just DONE-unplanned or not thought out (typically).

Whereas the average person may be able to exactly pin-point why they are feeling so down, low, and depressed etc., someone with bi-polar disorder cannot. They just: FEEL (it).

When one has bi-polar, those mood swings come and go without warning, or reason and can happen several times in a day or for long periods of time (like months—either high or lows).

th (33) F.Y.I marijuana/weed (or whatever your pet name for it is)…has a calming effect on most bi-polar high/manics.

Bi polar has several “classes” (in which I won’t get into at length) but there is:

Bi-polar (manic)-the “high” bi-polar.

Bi-polar (depressive)–the “low” bi-polar.

If one is diagnosed with sleep privation and bi-polar, he most probably is bi-polar manic.

As well, PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) is brought on by an onslaught of an/experience(s) that perhaps lay dormant in the mind that-once stimulated negatively (via your environment, a person/s, or some traumatic event in your life), brings and onslaught of other disorders like bi-polar disorder or mental illness like schizophrenia).   

For, bi-polar disorder is not the stigma it is built to be due to ignorance about the disorder.
