Very true. Witnessed it first hand with my grandfather. Add early stages of Alzheimer's and it was heartbreaking.

I wish him success in his goals on all levels. I don't think the guy deserves a cookie though for being a depressed alcoholic. He's used up all his sympathy and excuses. He's in a personal battle that depends on him.

His behavioral issues weren't the reason he didn't make it in the NFL.

He was an undersized dual-threat QB in a league where the lateral speed of defenders is much faster than those in college.

Russell Wilson is a success because Pete Carroll puts a good team together around him most of the time. Most teams can't do that.

That being said, good on him if he can make another QB gig work.

yeah, he has the some-times an asshole disease. It's not like he has aids. His personality doesn't work well with society so he needs help managing it hopefully to alter it if he wants an easier time with life. Mental disorders are not a disease so much any mental state of being that society deems outside of "normal" or unproductive or social obstacle. Everyone has mental disorders, some people just have it worse. Growing up spoiled might make it worse. And social class doesn't determine if some one is spoiled.

And couldn't "see" the field good enough to be an NFL guy. Something often overlooked during scouting.

A lot of his plays were on scrambles, plus he was throwing to 2 NFL WR.

Saying mental disorders are not a disease shows a lack of knowledge or just plain stupidity. Living life being bi-polar is very stressful as I live with it everyday. Please do some actual research next time.

If he has been diagnosed as such, he needs to be medicated. Too often, people with mental health issues have problems when they don't take their meds and it causes horrible problems...not just for them, but for others that are trying to help them

This is a load of crap. Mental disorders are most definitely diseases.

This is about the most misinformed uneducated remark I have seen on CT in a long time and that is saying something. They are absolutely biological in nature and are a disease just like any other chronic condition.

What are your views on diabetes and hypothyroidism? Are they just excuses to to make up for obesity?


Your stigmatization of mental disease is pitiful and a disgrace to those affected...

Default Re: Johnny Manziel: I知 bipolar

The dude got loaded up & beat on his girlfriend...right?? Did he spend any meaningful amount of time in jail for this?? No...which is crap.

As sick as his behavior was to watch play out in the press...

I do hope he surrounds himself with people that hold him accountable to taking his meds...

that is half the battle for those individuals with mental illnesses...if you don't have family/friends that hold your feet to fire to keep you taking the correct meds...you'll get sideways fast and are prone to lashing out violently.

GO COCKS!!

I can attest to this. My issue is when I feel "Normal" I don't like to take my meds because of side effects however, it leads to me thinking everyone else is wrong and I'm normal which leads to issues.

Not saying it isn't possible, just that I am skeptical.

But I don't think the Manziel Family will lose to much sleep worrying about what I think.

I understand how folks can be skeptical for sure. I doubt they are too worried what any of us think over here

I don稚 feel sorry for him honestly. He has had unbelievable opportunities and has acted like a jerk at all levels of the game. I can稚 forgive him for hitting his ex girlfriend. I知 glad he sought out help though and hope he continues on this new lifestyle but he had his chances and he blew them by not preparing and partying instead.
