“I’m not the person the media portrays me to be,” DMX says. “X is the bad guy. That’s not who I am. I’m not that person you see on TV.”

Earlier this year, DMX turned to Dr. Phil. DMX has opened up about his personal struggles. During the interview, he revealed that he suffers from bipolar disorder, which causes severe mood swings between mania and depression. The troubled star also discussed his battle to beat drug addiction and his history with dog fighting.

“I used to be really clear on who was what and what characteristics each personality had. But I don’t know at this point. I’m not even sure there is a difference,” he continued. “I’m Earl when I’m with my children. I miss my children, I miss my children, I miss my children.”

    Yes DMX, you are that person. You’re too mean to stick with the treatment because of your drug problem which does not help your mental illness. You probably don’t think you’re mentally ill. If anybody every experienced living/dealing with a person such as yourself with that horrible mental illness I pray for them, It’s a roller coaster ride and to HELL and back.

    That is one serious mental illness being bi-polar type 1, a dope fing and schizophrenic. I wouldn’t wish that mental illness on nobody. Meds to help him cope but clearly he needs to be admitted to a psych hospital with weekly psychiatric counseling sessions, as well as spiritual counseling in order to battle those demons he dealing with, clearly some of it self inflicted. Very sad.

    He must be bi-polar type 1 (way out of control/wacko), but it can be controlled if you take the meds as instructed by your psychiatrist and ongoing counseling, however drugs and medicaation don’t mix and he knows that! He’s not bi-polar type 2 which is a milder case scenario, and it too is controlled by medication with an outcome of a healthy normal life. There are many famous people such as Presidents, actors/actressess etc who are bi-polar 2, followed their medical advise regime and turned out just fine. DMX is a careless dope fing, bi-polar type 1, and schizophrenic. No way he’s doing the right thing to control his brain chemical imbalance. Very sad for him and horrible for his loved ones, those that are close to him including his children.
