Brit Could Be Involuntary Commitment Candidate

1/31/2008 10:16 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Sources at UCLA Medical Center tell TMZ Britney Spears has been classified as "G.D." -- Gravely Disabled. That is a huge and dangerous deal. That means the patient is unable to take care of basic needs, such as the acquisition of food, clothing or shelter. Being G.D. is one of the criteria for involuntary commitment.

Several health care professionals tell us Britney has fallen into a "manic state" due to her bipolar disorder. We're also told she arrived at the hospital this morning at around 2:15 AM, but wasn't admitted until 4:15 AM because she was causing such a scene in the hospital.

We first reported that Britney accused her mother of sleeping with her boyfriend. Now we have more. We're told Britney screamed, "The only reason she's admitting me is because she wants to be alone with her boyfriend! She wants to sleep with my boyfriend!!" Britney never said exactly who she was talking about.

When Brit calmed down, she talked about her kids, how much she misses them and how it's unfair that she doesn't have them.

All this talk of her being bipolar is premature. Frequently drug addicts are misdiagnosed as bipolar, because the drugs make them seem bipolar. Yeah, she's been up for three days, but she's also taking stimulants! Granted the stimulants are prescribed and not illegal, but anyone on a three day cocaine binge would acting about the same. When someone comes off of stimulants they are depressed. This mimics bipolar disorder, but is not bipolar disorder!

The only way to truly diagnose her is to have her off all meds for a while and then see how she's doing.

I'm not saying that she's not bipolar. There are other factors to consider when looking at her symptoms.

BTW, I used to be an psychotherapist working for the Los Angeles County and was on the Psychiatric Emergency Team (PET).

#94 Bipolarsufferer:

You've been ranting & raving about your personal bi-polar life for several days now. It looks like this whole Britney drama is making you manic too. Give it a rest, okay? No one - and I mean NO ONE - is really interested in another bloggers personal problems. You passed boring yesterday. Now you just sound pathetic. GET HELP!

TMZ is pathetic    

if there was a way to guarantee she could & would not drive (speeding, driving erratically etc) & putting the lives of others in danger...i'd say let who go do whatever, kill herself, who cares. but the truth is, she is putting the lives of others in danger.

She can buy (or lease) a new Mercedes, but she can't buy food? She can buy a case of red bull, but she can't buy food? It sounds like a severe case of bad choices to me. Besides, she's been to several restaurants the past few days.

LOOK PEOPLE: this woman doesn't cut herself. She doesn't burn herself. She doesn't walk into traffic. She doesn't physically threaten other people. Okay, so she isn't behaving the way everyone would like to see her behave. Is that such a crime? Maybe she doesn't want to do anything right now but hang out & get high or whatever. That's not a disease - it's a choice.

IF THE PAPS LEFT CELEBRITIES ALONE AND GAVE THEM THEIR PRIVACY, YOU FOOLS WOULD BE BORED OUT OF YOUR MINDS. QUIT PRETENDING TO CARE, BECAUSE YOU DON'T! YOU FOOLS THRIVE ON THIS KIND OF STUFF AND THEN PRETEND THAT CELEBRITIES ARE ENTITLED TO PRIVACY. BEING FOLLOWED AROUND BY THE PAP COMES WITH THE TERRITORY OF BEING A CELEBRITY. IF BRITNEY OR ANY OTHER CELEBRITY WANTED 'PRIVACY' THEY WOULD HIRE SECURITY GUARDS AND SEND THEIR HELP OUT TO THE LIQUOR STORE RUNS, THE GAS RUNS, THE STARBUCK RUNS, ETC. BRITNEY LIVES FOR THIS ATTENTION. WE ARE ALL RESPONSIBLE FOR OUR ACTIONS. BRITNEY HAD GOOD SECURITY AND MANAGEMENT AT ONE TIME. SHE, HERSELF, DECIDED TO FIRE HER SECURITY GUARDS, HER ASSISTANTS, ETC. IF YOU FOOLS HAD NO CELEBRITY SCOOPS TO READ ABOUT, YOU WOULD ALL GO INSANE. SO SHUT YOUR PIE HOLE TO YOU FOOLS WHO DEFEND THESE TYPE OF CELEBRITIES AND GET A LIFE OF YOUR OWN.

I still think she's a spoiled, narcissistic princess drug addict and can't stand to hear the word "no." If treatment helps her, then good. But I also hope she disappears from the public eye permanently.

Sorry to all the medical practitioners who pointed out that the posters here are basing their diagnoses on a very limited amount of data, none of it certain. I didn't mean to say I know exactly what is happening to her but I do know what it's like to have a mental illness and bipolar does fit a lot of the reported symptoms. But that's only the reported ones and not the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

To the person who said it can't be bipolar because she's been manic for a year. You don't know that. A bipolar in manic periods will act out, spend money, etc. When in a depressed swing, they tend to stay home and sleep. If she's a fast swing bipolar, she could seem to be constantly manic and you just never saw her down swings because she stayed inside then. And to the person who said she's delusional because she's paranoid, Well, DUH, paranoia is a common part of the manic side of bipolar along with megalomania.
