Over diagnosed garbage. Usually the go-to diagnosis if you are a jerk off and your psych doc can't tell you that you are just a jerk off. He probably got a borderline personality designation as well.

And vaccines cause autism and the earth is flat! 

Watching the interview briefly, you could literally see he's in a better place. His complexion and demeanor were just completely different.  I can't say I'm "rooting" for the guy, but I don't wish evil on people either. I hope he keeps it up.

I worked in psych and corrections for 10 years. Saying that bipolar and borderline are overdiagnosed is not the same as claiming autism is caused by vaccines. Did the subject hit a little close to home?

Bipolar or manic depression as it used to be called is nothing to be messed with, often comes on in the late teens and can explode in the twenties.  I knew one family that it ran in that had multiple suicides over three generations generally but not always at young ages.

ADHD, bipolar, autism and others can be occasionally misdiagnosed until symptoms really are clear enough to be accurately diagnosed aND treated....hopefullyif the patient is still alive.

Get the facts before painting everyone with the same brush and be thankful if you never have to deal with it personally.

No, I'll just tend to trust medical doctors and their opinions on patients. Crazy concept right?

Or we can go back hundreds of years in THIS country and declare people witches and burn them at the stake -or- put them under wooden planks and pile heavy rocks on them to "squeeze out the demons"......generally the "patients" died in either case......

........I think there are some that would like to practice that now in 2018.

He needs to sign for whatever he can with the Tiger Cats.....and see is he can even put one foot in front of another on a football field before he starts worrying about getting back into the NFL.

The only thing JM really has going for him is that he's a quarterback and the NFL is short on experienced quarterbacks -plus- the NFL quarterback position is super over inflated in the QB money machine salary department. 

Last year ATL QB Matt Ryan made more than every CFL player COMBINED! Big difference going up north to play.

Not all docs are created equal and not all docs have their heart in their right place ($$$). Someone without a diagnosis can't be treated and have it charged to medicaid.

The best thing  see going for him as a professional who spent a career working with people with bipolar disorder often self medicated with drugs and/or alcohol, is the insight he displays realizing that the only thing standing between him and that change  is the medication he needs to continue however "well" he may think he is. Biggest risk for this disorder is that meds work and the newly diagnosed/treated think they are now just fine and stop the meds. Big mistake. He seems to understand that he needs those medications to have a normal life. That is a major factor in remaining "well" and functioning at an optimal level no matter what he does in life. Good for him! Some folks take a series of failures before they can say what he is saying in that interview.

I placed my opinion on the other thread. Good for JM. The insight that is absolutely necessary for continued wellness is evident in the interview. He's obviously gotten help looking squarely in the mirror and sees that only continued medication compliance will help him maintain this change. Real insight is the most important factor in making it a permanent change for the better. My $.02 worth as a pro in the field for 30+ years career.

Totally agree Gip. He needs to prove he can keep his act together for a year in Canada before an NFL team will touch him.

Don't know anything about it - but I hope he has a great rest of his life. What he was saying wasn't contrived -

it was sincere - must hurt him a lot.  He'll need help getting on track.

Yes, there are corrupt doctors. But you know what? There's corrupt everyone, everywhere. By the logic you're using we should never trust anyone, anytime who can be influenced at face value. Also, did you not watch the Manziel trainwreck? Is it really that hard to believe he had a diagnosed mental illness based on the dozens of examples on and off the field?

So whatever happened to his court case resulting from him bouncing his girlfriend's head off the door glass of his car?

I think bi-polar is just an excuse to label something.... My Best Friend was 10x's the drunkard and drug addict than either Manziel or Gordon was.. He's been sober now since 1997,My father always told me something about people and addiction..You'll only quit when your ready. Theres no drug program or medicine that will cure you from addiction... I've been to rehab... I'll be the first to tell you, its a money making crock of Sheet... You wouldnt believe some of the cowpoop they sling in those sessions.. it's downright laughable.. Glenbeigh is a total fraud...

Manziel going up to Canada would be our revenge for Canada unleashing Tiny Canadian Pussy Douche upon us.
