Bipolar is not Bi-Winning: A Bipolar Comedian's Perspective on Mental Illness

Bipolar is not Bi-Winning: A Bipolar Comedian's Perspective on Mental Illness
BY MICHAEL HAYNE
NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM
COMMENTARY

In the wake of Robin Williams’ untimely death, the thing to know about most comedians is this: we're not pleasant, content, or well-adjusted. We're bothered, peevish, and often overwhelmed damaged goods who consistently worry, fret and nitpick. Adding mental illness to this already volatile mixture of emotions can lead to a very difficult, and at times unbalanced, life.

Society knows little about mental illness, and this ignorance leads to the stigmatization of its sufferers. Sure, mental health has come a long way from the dark days of One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, and the Affordable Care Act mandates that mental wellness be given the same importance as physical health. But it's not all rainbows and Pharrell songs.
