To some of my friends, this will only confirm what they've said for years. I am not ashamed to admit to this trait; I never admitted to being bipolar because I never considered I had mood swings, to me, my life had a few highs and many lows.
I am in a class that includes Graham Greene, Edgar Allan Poe, Otto Klemperer, Spike Milligan and Robert Schumann to mention a few people.
I do wonder, how many modern celebrities who claim to suffer, actually do and how many use it as a publicity stunt?
One who comes to mind is Kerry Katona www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-3627342/Kerry-Katona-s-daughter-Molly-McFadden-t-hide-delight-Thorpe-Park.html - ex singer of Atomic Kitten. She is a good example of a spoilt brat willing to do anything to keep in the media spotlight. Russell Brand is no better in my opinion and although I am not a fan of Stephen Fry, I like to think he has some integrity.
