Dr Phil has some ideas on how best to help Kanye west, or anyone struggling with bipolar disorder, and says it’s all about protecting it from itself … on many levels.
The good doc joined us on Friday on “TMZ Live” to discuss a tactic known as “containment”. He says it’s important for Kim kardashian and co. to remember that they are not dealing with the Kanye they know and love.
Phil says people often go through bipolar episodes engage in destructive behavior who put themselves at risk – buying 5 cars in a day would be an example – and containment is about preventing them from seeing things, events or people that could have long term consequences.
Kanye is not going to go bankrupt, but Phil says he could still find himself in bad situations that have lasting ramifications on his life. Beyond that, he says Kim must hope to catch up with him when he agrees to go back to his medication.
As we reported, Kanye made one fight for Kim to reach him, avoiding calls and declining his calls to join him in Wyoming, and claiming the family is trying to get him committed unintentionally.
That’s why Phil says containment, even from afar, might be the best yet.
Dr Phil also discusses Kanye’s recent rants on Twitter … explaining why people need to stop judging him for his comments during a bipolar episode.
Our sincere thanks to
