Kanye's Antics Explained

If you live anywhere on planet Earth you have probably seen images of one of the greatest rappers and record producers of all time,Kanye West,or as he now calls himself 'Ye',doing or even looking all kinds of "weird" or even "bizarre". Most people are quick to call him crazy and just move on with their lives but what they fail to comprehend is that Kanye,just like millions of people in the world,actually suffers from a medical condition termed bipolar. One might've come across that term before,but might not be too sure what it means,or even know how to spot it in another person.

Bipolar is the 6th leading cause of disability in the world,with over 1 million South Africans suffering from this condition. It requires treatment just like any other medical condition out there,and people with bipolar need just as much care and support as anyone suffering from a serious illness.

It affects both genders but men tend to have more "dramatic" episodes whilst women tend to swing more towards the depressive side of things. People with this condition might experience a dramatic switch between moods such as depression, loss of interest in day to day activities, lethargy,lack of concentration, suicidal thoughts etc.

Most people might disagree and say Kanye is simply being his usual "creative" self but most would agree that this is a clear sign that he actually needs help more than anything.

On the other hand, they might switch up and start feeling extremely excited, invincibility is also a thing,overconfidence and a decreased need for rest with racing,uncontrollable thoughts and speech.

If you or anyone that you know experience any of the above mentioned, firstly you need to remain calm and approach a qualified medical practioner and they'd be able to assist you. The most important thing to remember is that help is available for anyone with this condition and that with proper care and support,it can be safely managed and monitored.
