This guy managed his bi-polar because he has the best psychiatrist money can buy. I’m suffering with bi-polar which is ruining my life. I tried to kill myself. No one cares. Abs I can’t get a psychiatrist with Medicaid. So I’m sorry. But this is yet another story of a rich guy getting the best care money can buy. While those who really need the help will never get it.
