Popular rapper, Kanye West has spoken up about his battles with bipolar disorder.
Kanye, who has been blasting those that stigmatize whoever is battling any mental health issue, revealed this in the fresh season of David Letterman’s Netflix show, “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction.”
His words, I wouldn’t be able to explain that as much just because, you know, I’m not a doctor.
“I can just tell you what I’m feeling at the time, and I feel a heightened connection with the universe when I’m ramping up. It is a health issue.
“This — it’s like a sprained brain, like having a sprained ankle. And if someone has a sprained ankle, you’re not going to push on him more.
“With us, once our brain gets to a point of spraining, people do everything to make it worse.
“You have this moment [where] you feel everyone wants to kill you. You pretty much don’t trust anyone.
“When you’re in this state, you’re hyper-paranoid about everything, everyone. This is my experience, other people have different experiences.
“Everyone now is an actor. Everything’s a conspiracy. You feel the government is putting chips in your head. You feel you’re being recorded. You feel all these things.”
“They have this moment where they put you, they handcuff you, they drug you, they put you on the bed, and they separate you from everyone you know.
“That’s something that I am so happy that I experienced myself so I can start by changing that moment,” he said.
“If you don’t take medication every day to keep you at a certain state, you have a potential to ramp up and it can take you to a point where you can even end up in the hospital.
“People are allowed to say anything about it and discriminate in any way.”
