Johnny Depp’s former psychiatrist says he may have bipolar disorder

Published

on

According to the International Bipolar Association, symptoms vary between individuals.

During the course of the very public dispute between Johnny Depp and his former wife Amber Heard, the duo have each alleged that the other is suffering from mental health issues, perhaps by way of a possible explanation for the alleged abuse and violence. While Heard claims she is suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Depp’s former psychiatrist claimed that he exhibits symptoms of a form of bipolar disorder. These claims were made by psychiatrist Dr Alan Blaustein who was called to testify by Heard’s lawyers.

Bipolar disorder, formerly called manic depression, is a mental health condition that causes extreme mood swings that include emotional highs (mania or hypomania) and lows (depression).

According to Mayo Clinic, when you become depressed, you may feel sad or hopeless and lose interest or pleasure in most activities. When your mood shifts to mania or hypomania (less extreme than mania), you may feel euphoric, full of energy or unusually irritable. These mood swings can affect sleep, energy, activity, judgment, behaviour and the ability to think clearly.

Episodes of mood swings may occur rarely or multiple times a year. While most people will experience some emotional symptoms between episodes, some may not experience any.

Main symptom of the disorder is alternating episodes of high and low mood

The National Institute of Mental Health describes the main symptoms of bipolar disorder as alternating episodes of high and low mood. Changes in energy levels, sleep patterns, ability to focus, and other features can dramatically impact a person’s behaviour, work, relationships, and other aspects of life.

According to the International Bipolar Association, symptoms vary between individuals. For some people, an episode can last for several months or years. Others may experience “highs” and “lows” at the same time or in quick succession.

In “rapid cycling” bipolar disorder, the person will have four or more episodes within a year.

Mania or hypomania

Hypomania and mania are elevated moods. Mania is more intense than hypomania.

Symptoms can include:

  • Impaired judgment
  • Feeling wired
  • Sleeping little but not feeling tired
  • A sense of distraction or boredom
  • Missing work or school
  • Underperforming at work or school
  • Feeling able to do anything
  • Being sociable and forthcoming, sometimes aggressively so
  • Engaging in risky behaviour
  • Increased libido
  • Feeling exhilarated or euphoric
  • Having high levels of self-confidence, self-esteem, and self-importance
  • Talking a lot and rapidly
  • Jumping from one topic to another in conversation
  • Having “racing” thoughts that come and go quickly, and bizarre ideas that the person may act upon
  • Denying or not realizing that anything is wrong

Some people with bipolar disorder may spend a lot of money, use recreational drugs, consume alcohol, and participate in dangerous and inappropriate activities.

What are the early signs of bipolar disorder in children and teens?

During an episode of bipolar depression, a person may experience a feeling of gloom, despair, and hopelessness. The individual can also experience extreme sadness, insomnia and other sleeping problems. The person may get anxious about minor issues and experience pain or physical problems that do not respond to treatment.

A sense of guilt, which may be misplaced can also be experienced. Eating more or eating less, weight loss or weight gain and extreme tiredness, fatigue, and listlessness are also symptoms of the disorder.

Inability to enjoy activities or interests that usually give pleasure, difficulty focusing and remembering, irritability, sensitivity to noises, smells, and other things that others may not notice, and an inability to face going to work or school, possibly leading to underperformance can also be counted as Symptoms of Bipolar disorder.

In severe cases, the individual may think about ending their life, and they may act on those thoughts.

Jenna Ortega’s Biggest Regret? Wednesday Scene Fans Can’t Stop Talking About

Published

Despite the ultimate fan love she received for the viral Wednesday dance, the actress seems to think she could have done better.

Quickly becoming one of Netflix‘s biggest hits ever, Wednesday is marching through Twitter threads, TikTok videos, and Instagram reels and garnering views and likes months after the premiere. All of this thanks to the show’s most popular scene — the Wednesday dance to The Cramps’ Goo Goo Muck at the school disco at Nevermore.

However, speaking with Entertainment Tonightat the Golden Globes ceremony, the show’s main star Jenna Ortega revealed that she isn’t fully satisfied with the final result.

“There was so much I could have done and should have done. So, the fact that anyone has shown any appreciation or even tried it themselves is unfathomable to me,” the actress said, commenting on the Wednesday dance’s viral popularity.

Ortega choreographed the dance herself, somehow managing to combine improvisation and old goth moves. Besides, she also revealed that she had to film the scene while having coronavirus — something that the actress and the production were heavily criticized for.

Still, despite Ortega’s apparent regrets, the dance scene is probably the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Netflix’s Wednesday. This all started with a TikTok edit that popularized the dance, but with a high-pitched remix of Lady Gaga‘s Bloody Mary instead of the original soundtrack.

Now, Netflix has greenlit Wednesday for a second season — and even used Bloody Mary to promote the upcoming sequel, apparently nodding to the viral song choice. The premiere date for Wednesday season 2 is yet to be announced.
