When he was a young man His mental illness was championed, encouraged and applauded by his parents. They fed into it, while the family was making money off of it. You can only be so famous, do so much drugs and alcohol before you start to "lose it". Bam has probably never self reflected or knows his true self.
I had no idea that he was mentally ill.
I'm curious, what was his diagnosis back then?
Please. If you don't think addiction is not a form of mental illness you are mistaken. His parents share some of the blame since his show was him acting like a degenerate on national tv while disrespecting his parents. Heavy alcohol and drug use was fine when everyone was getting paid. It all comes at a cost, usually an empty existence which is what we are seeing manifest.
I honestly hope he gets help, recovers and lives a meaningful life. From what I heard he was a legit good skater, sad to see him where he is now.
Addiction is not a mental illness. Thanks for clearing up that you just don't know WTF you're talking about.
how is it not a mental illness?
Just because they've relatively recently decided to classify it as one, doesn't make it true. Just like no longer classifying being a transsexual as a mental disorder doesn't mean it isn't. It is.
And being addicted to drugs can cause mental illness, but it's not one. That's just another example of removing personal responsibility from society so that everyone can be a victim, even of their own choices.
It's not a disease but it is an illness. Drugs literally fuck with your brain.
Btw, obesity is next. They do this shit to create awareness ave funding and reduce stigma. Not because these problems are suddenly revealed to be mental illness by some emperical measures.
Drugs literally altar your brain, obesity does not.
