Award-winning rapper, Kanye West has opened up on his struggles with bipolar disorder.
West, who has been campaigning against the stigmatisation of people with mental health issues, in his new season of David Letterman’s Netflix show, “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction”, confessed that he has health issues.
Husband to the reality star, Kim Kardashian, who was diagnosed with bipolar disorder two years ago, explained how he feels whenever he notices a change in his health.
“I wouldn’t be able to explain that as much just because, you know, I’m not a doctor.
“I can just tell you what I’m feeling at the time, and I feel a heightened connection with the universe when I’m ramping up. It is a health issue.
“This — it’s like a sprained brain, like having a sprained ankle and if someone has a sprained ankle, you’re not going to push on him more.
“With us, once our brain gets to a point of spraining, people do everything to make it worse.
“You have this moment [where] you feel everyone wants to kill you. You pretty much don’t trust anyone.
“When you’re in this state, you’re hyper-paranoid about everything, everyone. This is my experience, other people have different experiences.
Everyone now is an actor, Everything’s a conspiracy. You feel the government is putting chips in your head. You feel you’re being recorded. You feel all these things,” West said.
