It's unofficially official....Britney is bipolar....

Well, I have to confess, I've watched Britney Spears' "train wreck" with mild curiosity--after all, if someone as rich as her can have this many problems that are supposedly related to mental health, it makes the "everyday" problems that DH has seem that much more reasonable. I guess, the not-very-nice thing to say is that I "gloat". After all, nobody related to Britney is working 66 hours a week to pay for her "episodes", but a lot of people are very stressed out about them. I guess sometimes it's my selfish way to feel better when I see that these sorts of things can and really do happen to the "privileged", too.

On the other hand, I do feel sad that she is going through this. Sometimes I think that "someday" when DH is back to his normal self, he'll look back at the things he said and did and be horrified. And I have no doubt that it is the same with Britney Spears, too. My hope for her is that much of her "stuff" is chemically induced--that is to say, via drugs or alcohol, and that she does not have to completely lose everything that is "Britney" to this illness. I'm sure there is much more going on than just what the media reports, hopefully it is all manageable, if she finds the right treatment....

Anyhow, here's a link: Britney Spears Bipolar?
