    According to a fox sports article, Marquise Hill has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, and has scared off many scouts due to another 1st round disaster that went up in flames with the same condition. Has anyone else ever heard of this? It would somewhat explain Hill's antics declaring for the draft, but this is news to me. It would be a shame if this is true, cause I wouldn't wish it on anybody. Can anyone confirm this? :dis: article

    yeah he was the defensive lineman drafted by the vikings from Mich State (I think) this was one of saban's boys (I think). slashed his own throat.


    not good for Hill if this is his diagnosis. damn.

    bipolar is associated with manic depressants. people with serious mood swings as well. kinda like ADD, it seems once they label a condition and slap a prescription drug for it, then everyone has it. almost like an excuse but i am not saying he doesnt have it.

    If he does have it, it is a serious, serious thing...but it is manageable with prescription drugs and help....

    Actually, its not like ADHD at all. ADHD has to do with disinhibition.... in other words, a person with ADHD typically has trouble inhibiting him or herself and therefore may act impulsively and may have trouble going from one task to another. The latest theroy is that it has to do with the brain's executive functioing. (As a side, especially in children, ADHD is misdiangosed. More often the child really has a leraning disdability of some type. If so, all the medication in the world won't help the problem.)

    Bi-polar means that an adult (the symptoms are different in children) has serious mood swings form "manic" to "depressive", thus the term bi-polar. The depresive stage is much the same as any person with depression. The manic phase is characterized by feelings of grandiosity.

    As with depressio, a person can have it a little or a lot. It can be treated with drugs, and the latest generation of psytropics are much more potent with fewer side effects than those of even 10 or 15 years ago. But, it sometimes can take quite a while to get the right drug at the right dosage, and even then, the person must be closely monitored and the drug and/or dosage tweaked to maintian effectivenss.

    It is a hard condition to properly diagnos. Often the depressive stage is noticed more than the manic.... so often bipolars are misdiagnosed as unipolar (depressed). Since diffeent drugs are used for the two condition, a person can be on anti-depressants with only mild or no benefit being shown.

    Hope he doesn't have it.

    I think what they say is a little unfair. Dimitrius Underwood has an EXTREME case of it.

    was comparing them not medically....simply saying there is a 'mania' toward certain illnesses/conditions which are somewhat instigated by pharmaceutical companies and/or doctors. My ex was diagnosed with a 'slight' form of bipolar disorder....whatever that meant. She was given prescriptions to all the meds you now see on the commercials. Hell I still have some...maybe ill take em.


    I claim she had it full blown so i guess that contradicts my entire post.

    Didn't Todd Wade have it? He just got a huge contract with the Texans, didn't hold him back too much.

    Maybe Hill's agent told him he was bipolar.

    I dont remember anything on him having it....however if so then Miami has a tendency to draft people with this illness, err disorder. So, I guess Marquise may be going to Miami?
