  1. I think she's apologizing for this, because it's still her smaller 'crime'. This was more rude: "This is not the first time Rihanna has done something like this. Back in 2020 she went to a mosque wearing tight clothes and a so called hijab and posed there inappropriately and posted the pictures looking at Muslim women wearing hijab and saying "***** stole my look".
  2. Psychosis itself is more a symptom than an illness (it means patients are losing connection with reality), but many things can cause it, even physical problems like tumors or metabolic disorders etc (that's "secondary psychosis" then). It's like when you have a headache, but you don't know why. Not the headache the problem, you can deal with that with painkillers, but something must cause it. Bipolar, schizophrenia or BPD can be a source. This is what professionals do, they're trying to find out what is wrong, this is why many people don't have a diagnosis yet, or they're misdiagnosed, because they don't show all the symptoms that are needed for those diagnoses. Mania as a symptom is usually connected to bipolar, but not only to that. So it's not crystal clear and it takes time. We only know what she lets us, that she is suffering from PTSD and is on antipsychotic medication (two different things), so the latter can be anything, even an undiagnosed physical problem that's causing a chemical imbalance in her brain. Very unfortunate to say things and advices about these situations randomly - which was my original complain in this thread. I'm not a professional, tho, this is just what I was learned because I also have problems, so the best is if you'll read more about these things by yourselves if you're interested.
  3. In reality there are two kinds of mental illnesses/disorders: 1 - trauma based (like PTSD, C-PTSD, DID-OSDD etc) and 2 - a chemical imbalance in the brain (bipolar, schizophrenia etc). So her r*** would cause PTSD, yes, but not this imbalance she needs the meds for. She has, at least, two totally different problems, and she doesn't talk about her PTSD symptoms, she talks about that event and her medication sometimes, but those are not connected! What does it say then? This is why I say she's not good at being an advocate for mental health, because if you know a little about these things, then you understand that she's reaching a lot. PTSD symptoms also won't disappear with just loving yourself, that's a complex problem when your brain dissociates and it doesn't store those traumatic events like memories, so it always shows them to you over and over again. (She even mentioned dissociating in this interview, but then left it hanging there for no reason.) That needs a special therapy (conversation based), not meds for a chemical imbalance obviously... So how she talks about her problems is a mess. She probably wants good, but she's not good at it.
  4. I experienced this personally and others also have, when somebody who called herself an advocate/survivor/sufferer only told half-truths, because she wanted to "end the stigma", so it can be dangerous and bad for your own mental health. Loving yourself is an important part of the healing, but unfortunately it won't solve the problem - a chemical imbalance in your brain. It has nothing to do with your self-esteem tbh. Imagine a young, struggling individual who reads this and thinking: "oh Lady Gaga got better because she learned how to love herself as a beloved, celebrated, multimillionaire superstar... good for her, while I'm a mess and alone" (meanwhile, in reality, she took her meds as everybody else should in a situation like this, and if she talks about this instead, that can save lives). it's constantly discussed in many different platforms, because this kind of advocacy sometimes does more damage than good. This is why it should be done by professionals instead, but of course everybody has the right to talk about their own feelings and stories, and nobody can say: shut it just because that person doesn't do the best job at it. Being brave and outspoken is nice, but being good at advocating is a totally different topic.
  5. This is the problem in a nutshell. She's open... here and there... and sometimes she just talks about loving herself, and when some people only read this interview, they can feel bad. It's like speaking about the importance of chemotherapy for cancer treatment, and in an other interview you only talk about the power of self-acceptance and loving yourself as the cure. If somebody's advocating for mental health, it is very very very important to be consistent and thoughtful all the time. No skips, no half-truths, because you don't know which interview they will read at the end.
  6. No, it doesn't work like this. The point is that these meds treat her problems as well because she has some kind of chemical imbalance in her brain (this can be temporary or constant). It doesn't have to be for a specific diagnosis if she doesn't have other symptoms for those. It's really great that she's talking about her mental issues and even medication, but it doesn't help a lot if she skips mentioning her antipsychotic drug in other interviews, rather suggests it was like a choice and it's only about "self-acceptance" and "loving herself". It's very superficial to say, and just half of the truth, she needed her meds too. For me it's all or nothing: the whole truth or stay quiet, otherwise it can hurt other people.
  7. https://nypost.com/2020/08/11/lady-gaga-on-antipsychotic-meds-i-cant-always-control-my-brain/ "“I can’t always control things that my brain does — and I have to take medication to stop the process that occurs,” Gaga, whose given name is Stefani Germanotta, said in describing her psychological turmoil. She told Lowe that the track “911” discusses her medication, olanzapine, a drug primarily used to treat bipolar disorder and schizophrenia."
  8. Sorry to say this but I find these kind of interviews very superficial. She's on antipsychotic in reality, these thoughts are not choices, rather a chemical imbalance in her brain. So people who are struggling and reading this think "she's so strong and brave, while I can't get over it"... she couldn't by herself either, she needs her meds.
  9. I'm following this woman on twitter since she started to spill the tea, but I was convinced that this account was fake. This conservationship is much more darker than we thought, it seems. 5 bullets in her car in 2016? Is she in fear of her and her family members' lives? She sounded like an attention seeker with the usual cryptic messages and now BAM. She is real and went against them on court, such a brave woman! We should listen to her from now on. She writes a lot of interesting things about the system and their strategy in general. "Conservatorship of the Estate and Conservatorship of the Person are not necessarily mutually inclusive. The two are not always dependent on each other. One can exist without the other. Why temporary Conservatorship of the PERSON for 12 years without proper adjudication? Why? Abuse of Due Process: Using temporary, ex parte emergency hearings in lieu of statutorily required noticed hearings and then continue and continue and continue these emergency hearings until the public or the subject or the world can't tell 'what is what' anymore."
  10. I understand this, yet I'm not sure what "bad" means. If "bad" means no more court decisions until then as punishment, that's the best for them.
  11. After a while, maybe, I'm not sure anymore. What if they pay for Ingham and then stop doing it 1 or 2 weeks before the 10th of November again? Then that's the same yet new situation...
  12. So it means no more court decisions until they pay? So they remain the conservators and can't be replaced until then? They will NEVER pay then...
  13. I'd like to show you guys a video, I like this woman's YouTube channel, because she talks about things that are still considered as taboo. I'm not saying Britney has schizophrenia or anything related, the point is to show how psychosis works and what can happen when you're in that state, that the patient is extremely paranoid, scared, desperate, "just wants to be alone", "not herself" at all, is fighting with her loved ones, professionals and/or the cops, and you can see they're capable and completely fine just a couple of weeks later. Plus, she always mentions that she's afraid of the anti-psychotic meds because those can make you "tic" after a while. There's another video wherein she is talking about the electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) as well to cure her depression, and how that process works. (There are rumors about Britney also got it.) It's very interesting, helps you to understand these mental issues and their consequences, and maybe Britney had something like this back in the day, even depressed people can be delusional and in psychosis without the right treatment.
