Britney Spears is bipolar, plane and simple. I’ve been saying it for months and months, and now finally she is doing something about it. It’s a very good sign that she agreed to this hospitalization and I really hope she stays for a long time. I’ve mentioned before that a member of my family is bipolar, so I know first hand what it’s like to deal with someone with a serious mental illness and is so ill they can’t conceptualize how ill they are. But I also know first hand what it’s like on the other side, when they are healthy and mentally stronger.
I received the following email today from a friend of mine who has suffered from depression in the past, and therefore has every right to throw the “crazy” stone from her glass house.
