What's happening to Kanye is heartbreaking. It's impossible to know if he is going through a manic episode, but in light of some reactions, I'd like to share my own experience.

The goal here is to get people to empathize with how dangerous and difficult this is.

It was summer break during college, and I was staying at a house my friend had rented near our school in Arizona.

I hadn't come home because I had been behaving so erratically that my parents were concerned about my being with them.

This was before I was diagnosed as bipolar.
I was pretty much alone, except for my roommate, as well as my girlfriend at the time. I had very little supervision, in other words.

For most of the summer, I was simply depressed. Mostly stayed at the house smoking, watching TV, playing video games. Not much else.
