Brit Probably Bipolar

1/5/2008 1:06 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

BritneyTMZ has even more evidence now that this is NOT a case of substance abuse. As we already reported, we're told Brit has all the symptoms of what appears to be some sort of bipolar disorder. This is becoming the universal operating theory from people in both Brit and K-Fed's camps. They are privately hoping the docs properly diagnose her at Cedars.

Also, there are reports swirling about all the people in Brit's home who came to her rescue; who broke the door down, who just lingered. You would think she was having a pre-pre-pre Super Bowl party.

In fact, we know that aside from the monitor, there were a grand total of two others in the house -- aside from Brit and the kids. The two were both hired help.

Thats what us bloggers have been saying for months...

TMZ.. you have been implying that shes an addict by twisting your words around, now you go with the Bi-Polar? Your so full of it its sick.

K-Feds "camp" needs to back off and out of this. They have NO RIGHT to be involved with her treatment and the HIPPA act should protect her from these people. IF K-FED was aware that she was Bi-Polar and conintued to trigger her, then he should be held responsible for this as he knew that what he has been doing to her for the past year would ultimatly drive her to a mental break down.

This makes sense as bipolar is often onset in a person's early adulthood and can occur after childbirth. Clearly on Thursday she was exhibting full psychosis.

It's astounding how many of you are ignorant when it comes to mental illness. But, I guess if you have no experience with people who are truly sick and struck by this disease, it's easy to be clueless. I pray that you never have to watch a loved one go through a psychotic break, not for your sake, but for theirs. And, God forbid they kill themselves because of it. Of course, your reaction wouldn't be guilt, it'd be anger at them for not simply "getting it together." Pathetic.

I've been saying since her impulsive marriage to Jason Alexander that she is Bi-Polar. For those who say one can't become Bi-Polar overnight, you are technically right., but the symptoms don't quite commonly become apparent until the early 20's. Sometimes a pregnancy can exacerbate it. Without treatment, it gets worse. It is not curable, but can be controlled with meds. The hardest part is getting the victim to realize they are Bi-Polar and even harder to get them to stay on medication. They start feeling better and go off the meds not realizing it's the meds making them feel better. Brtney is textbook for someone with an out of control Bi-Polar Disorder. She needs therapy and meds. She also needs rehab if she has a dual diagnosis of substance abuse. I'm not qualified to diagnose this disorder or anything else, but based on my experiences within my own family, I believe I'm right. Don't be so quick to judge the parents, At one point, all you can do is let go and save yourself and the rest of the family and hope and pray the family member with this disorder will get the help they need. This 5150 may be the best thing that ever happeded to Britney. It's just a shame it's so public.

If Britney gets better, Corn Flake, can prepare to hand her kids back over. She now has a medical diagnosis that legally cant be held against her if she gets help for it.

And when she goes off her meds?? Read any news lately? People off their meds shooting up malls,churches,family members,ect

She will be fine as long as they keep her Devil's cup and her cash pipe away from her.......oh I am sure they have already confiscated those things, though.

Party 'till you die!    

I've been saying this and saying this for the longest time. Long before it became popular to do so! And I do not like one bit that she has it, because now people may say something horrible like 'Oh, that's what Britney has too?' I can't stand the thought of that!

If this chick IS bpolar, the judge needs to answer why he didn't do a mental evaluation long ago. He put the kids in harms way. I hope someone follows up on this.

Definitely BP. Knew it would come out eventually especially after the shaving the head incident back in March. Her behavior is typical manic BP behavior. She's been self-medicating for a loooong time. Personally don't like her but hope that she gets the proper dx and meds and therapy. It is also well know that PPD exacerbates the symptoms of BP. Perhaps with a proper dx she can salvage her career and move on with her life.

So what do they do at these 72 hour evaluations? I imagine Brit will refuse to speak to the docs. How can they make you seek help? She has resisted thus far.
