Mariah Carey Suffers From Bipolar II Disorder

Mariah Carey has opened up about her battle with Bipolar II Disorder, otherwise known as manic depression. “I didn’t want to believe it,” Carey tells People. “Until recently I lived in denial and isolation and in constant fear someone would expose me,” Carey says. “For a long time I thought I had a severe sleep disorder,” she adds. “But it wasn’t normal insomnia and I wasn’t lying awake counting sheep. I was working and working and working . I was irritable and in constant fear of letting people down. It turns out that I was experiencing a form of mania. Eventually I would just hit a wall. I guess my depressive episodes were characterized by having very low energy. I would feel so lonely and sad – even guilty that I wasn’t doing what I needed to be doing for my career.” She says that she was first diagnosed with the illness back in 2001.
