Mel displays all the classic symptoms of Biploar type I. In a 2008 documentary, Acting Class of 1977, he first talked about being diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
Thank you. You took the bottom line and exposed the truth.
If he lost both legs Mel’s critics would muster some slack and sympathy, but never for internal sufferings not seen by the eye. Disorders of the mind and spirit are still scorned, judged and mocked by the standard of outward symtoms, in our supposed “enlightened” society. I feel terribly sorry for this gifted man, and it is frequently the gifted who do suffer from bipolar disorder.
Praying for the creator of THE PASSION.

In one tape Oskana tells him he needs medication.
Bipolars sometimes feel fine, so they go off the meds, only to have episodes.
I read the most important thing a bipolar needs to remember: don’t go off the meds because you feel okay.
Also, there has been no mention that I have heard that Mel was/was not on the sauce again. Could be another variable.
Money can’t buy sobriety, or serenity, or a quiet mind.
I hope the remaining people who care about Mel help him to get the kind of help he may need.
