I’ve never been a big fan of Kanye West. But it is clear that his mental illness is getting the best of him at the moment. Everyone talks about him being bipolar. But in my opinion, he’s been showing signs of schizophrenia for quiet some time. There is a diagnosis called the Messiah complex that is seen with people with bipolar and schizophrenia. That is what I see in Kanye. He literally calls himself Yesus. It is scary and he needs help.
The tabloids are saying that he has sane times where he is fine, and takes his meds, and other times when he refuses to take his medication. I had a cousin who was in Vietnam and came back all kinds of messed up (like my eldest brother who has pronounced all his siblings dead to him) and he moved back in with his parents. They would put his meds in his coffee because he refused to take them. I can’t imagine what Kim and Kris are feeling right now.
I find it all very unsettling and I can’t stop reading about it. Currently, Kanye is in Wyoming self isolating (with “body guards”). Probably because it is a whole lot easier to take someone in for treatment against their will in California where the 5150 law is in place. It is all very sad and Kim Kardashian who I am also not that interested in must be terrified and worried sick. I really hope that this situation has a happy ending. But in the meantime, it is quite disturbing. I wonder if that scheister mega church pastor could talk some sense into him? Kanye got super “religious” when he went off the deep end. It’s all very sad to me, and I hope he gets well soon.
