Kim Kardashian confirms that her husband is bipolar, after he said he was just ‘sleep-deprived,’ she revealed why Ye refuses to take any medication for it- Kanye West had publicly disputed his bipolar diagnosis during an infamous visit with President Donald Trump in October 2018.
According to 38 year old Kim K on Kanye West’s mental health in the May 2019 issue of Vogue: “I think we’re in a pretty good place with it now.” She was ready and willing to discuss her husband’s struggles, especially after Kanye, 41, while in the Oval Office, proclaimed that he wasn’t bipolar but sleep deprived. Kim told Vogue that he has once again accepted his bipolar diagnosis.
“It is an emotional process, for sure. Right now everything is really calm. But we can definitely feel episodes coming, and we know how to handle them.
Kim told Vogue that there were conflicting assessments from doctors, which led Ye to believe that his issues were due to a lack of sleep. She also said that accepting the diagnosis has given him a sense of purpose. He wants to show one can live a normal life with a mental illness. However, that doesn’t mean he’s back on his Lexapro. “For him, being on medication is not really an option, because it just changes who he is,” Kim said.
“Traveling a lot does set it off, so he doesn’t travel as much as he used to,” she said. “But honestly, I never want to speak for him, because I am not in his mind. But I think some of the hurtful things that I read online…
What is she doing? She’s not stopping him…Like it’s my fault if he does or says something that they don’t agree with? That’s my husband. I share every opinion that I have and let him know when I think something’s wrong. Or if it comes to him being in the middle of a bipolar episode, I’ll do everything to be supportive and help to calm the situation.”
