Filed under: Legal MattersSad SadHealth

james-holmes-arraignment1__opt1.jpg

While gunning down a packed theater full of excited movie-goers is indicative of insanity, some experts believe Dark Knight Rises gunman James Holmes could actually be suffering from a mental illness such as schizophrenia, which can begin to manifest during the early twenties.

Here's what we know:

Reports claim that upon his arrest, James Holmes' hands were covered by evidence bags to preserve gun-shot residue, which he then proceeded to pretend were puppets.

In his first court appearance Monday, Holmes appeared dazed, his eyes kept bulging and remained unfocused throughout the hearing.

Many speculated he was heavily medicated, however a worker at the Arapahoe County Detention Center where Holmes is being held, states:

Teen Mom's Amber Portwood Diagnosed With Extreme Bipolar Disease

Filed under: Sad SadTeen Mom

This is really sad, but also, not surprising.

Teen Mom's Amber Portwood is opening up about her struggles with mental illness.

The mom, who just earlier this week was seen on a video fighting with a complete stranger at an IHOP, and has dealt with domestic abuse issues herself, explains her diagnosis of extreme bipolar and disassociative disorder.

She says:

"I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder three years ago. I struggle with it. I hate it. I grieve over it. When I went to rehab for two months, they diagnosed me with disassociative disorder too, which makes me black out. People don't understand what it's like."

She also explains the fight that was on caught on tape:

"I was with Mike (her new boyfriend), and yes, we did go have a couple of drinks. But I was not drunk. We were sitting by ourselves, laughing and talking and my legs were up on his, just having a good time. Suddenly, I hear this couple make these racist comments.

I looked over and said, 'Excuse me, but why are you starting drama? Please do everyone a favor and keep your comments to yourself.'"

When the comments didn't stop, that's what pushed her over the edge. She continues:

"So that's when I got up and told her to shut her f–king mouth.

I'm sick and tired of people bashing me every time I leave my house. When I go out, I mind my own business, but people try to fight me and get me going because I guess they think I'm most famous for fighting Gary. I get picked on every time I go out in public. I just want to be a normal 21-year-old. I do my duties, I take care of my child. Yes, I did hit Gary, and what people saw was an angry Amber who reacted to the father of her child telling her he had cheated on her.

People pick on me just to see if I'll fight them. They think I'm this hard person, but I'm not! I'm a good person. I love my friends. I love people…I just want people to know that people change. I'm doing really well. I'm happy. Yes, I am on an MTV show, but I deserve a normal life, too. People need to realize that the show, Teen Mom, is on TV just to help others not make the same mistakes. That's it."

We know it's hard, but those are the consequences of starring on a reality show and airing your dirty laundry.

We just hope that Amber gets the help she so desperately needs and can learn to deal with problems without fighting.

Nic Cage’s Son Taken In For Mental Evaluation

Filed under: Mental Health

Nick Cage’s Son Taken In For Mental Evaluation

Nic Cage’s son Weston is in the hospital, just six weeks after getting married.

Weston was deemed “ill” after an altercation with his trainer, where he “freaked out” after his trainer told him he couldn’t eat something off the menu.

He’s now being held in the hospital, and could stay there indefinitely, at least for the time being, due to laws requiring the government to detain people who are mentally unstable and pose a threat.

Nic Cage is reportedly staying with him for the time being.

Demi Lovato Vs. Cyber Bullies

demi lovato vs cyber bullies

Last month, Demi Lovato demonstrated her empathy/sympathy for other people suffering from mental illness when she commended Catherine Zeta Jones on Twitter for her decision to seek treatment for her Bipolar II disorder.

Now, Demi has continued speaking up for individuals suffering from mental illness, but this time she's taking on cyber bullies who make fun of Bipolar and other mental illness issues:

"I wish there wasn't so much pressure on society to be thin. It makes recovery so much harder."

"My heart goes out to any and all women who deal with this daily battle. I can't stand it when people make fun of the diseases so many people struggle from."

"Along with making fun of illnesses or diseases, doing it over the internet only makes you more of a coward. Not to mention you've performed the act of cyber-bullying, something that is equally wrong and unacceptable."

We wholeheartedly agree with you, Demi. Thanks for continuing to speak up on such an important issue!
