Wow. and I just thought he was a crooked asshole like his worthless race-pimping father! Of course, I suppose crooked assholes, and worthless race pimps can have Bipolar Disorder too, so…..
U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., a Chicago Democrat who took a hushed medical leave two months ago, is being treated for bipolar disorder, the Mayo Clinic announced Monday.
The Rochester, Minn.-based clinic specified his condition as Bipolar II, which is defined as periodic episodes of depression and hypomania, a less serious form of mania.
“Congressman Jackson is responding well to the treatment and regaining his strength,” the clinic said in a statement.
Bipolar II is a treatable condition that affects parts of the brain controlling emotion, thought and drive and is likely caused “by a complex set of genetic and environmental factors,” the clinic said. The statement also mentioned that Jackson underwent weight loss surgery in 2004 and said such a surgery can change how the body absorbs foods and medications, among other things.
In all seriousness, I am not mocking genuine mental disorders, not at all. I do hope he gets the help he needs to recover. then he can go back to being a, well, you know…………………
