Mariah Carey opens up about her battle with bipolar disorder

Mariah Carey has spoken for the first time about her 17-year battle with bipolar disorder.

The singer told People she was first diagnosed with the condition in 2001 after a mental breakdown which resulted in her being admitted to hospital.

Carey, who has sold 200 million records worldwide, said she only recently has sought medical treatment.

She said it came after “the hardest couple of years I’ve been through”.

“Until recently I lived in denial and isolation and in constant fear someone would expose me,” she explained.

“It was too heavy a burden to carry and I simply couldn’t do that anymore.

“I sought and received treatment, I put positive people around me and I got back to doing what I love – writing songs and making music.”

Carey said she is now having therapy and taking medication for bipolar disorder, which has caused her to have periods of depression and hypomania, which can cause irritability and insomnia.

“I’m actually taking medication that seems to be pretty good. It’s not making me feel too tired or sluggish or anything like that. Finding the proper balance is what is most important,” she told People.

She added that for a long time she thought she had “severe sleep disorder” but whilst working on her album in the studio released “it wasn’t normal insomnia”.

“I was irritable and in constant fear of letting people down,” she added.

“I guess my depressive episodes were characterized by having very low energy. I would feel so lonely and sad – even guilty that I wasn’t doing what I needed to be doing for my career.”

Our sources say what may have been the deal breaker for Packer came when she had some sort of rendezvous with one of the dancers in her Vegas show … something that is on video for the reality show.
We’re told James hated the reality show from the get-go and it became a major source of conflict.
Women’s Day in Australia is reporting James dumped Mariah in part over her “extravagant spending.”

It sure seemed like something was amiss over the weekend when Nick Cannon showed up for Mariah’s Halloween party but Packer was a no-show. They said it was because Halloween parties were not his thing … it’s possible neither is Mariah anymore.
