the following story is so sad.
i couldn’t believe it when i saw it trending on twitter.
as someone who has a relative that suffers from bipolar,
i know out of control it can make the person.
if they aren’t taking their medication,
the disease ultimately takes over.
the whole time i knew mi was bipolar,
i didn’t get why she did the things she did.
most of us don’t understand why former nba baller wolf,
who had it all is currently homeless and getting beat up on the highway...

Apparently Delonte West was seen getting beat up in the street this Morning. I went to school with him and it’s crazy to see just how his life has gone downhill since the NBA. pic.twitter.com/chm6Sbu9h6

it’s sad we live in a time that instead of helping someone,
we pull out our phones to record so it can go viral.
i wouldn’t be fontin’ about it today but still…
so i remember when he played in the league.
he was a pretty good baller wolf and then he vanished.
i thought it was because of the alleged rumor he slept with lebron’s mother.
i figure king james banished him and he was working a regular 9 to 5 somewhere.
who knew he was suffering at the hands of mental health issues.
this is all really disheartening to see him like that,
but bipolar folks can’t see the error in their own ways.
mi tried to kill me and then was concerned i’d kill myself because of it.
until they take their meds,
and stick to that regiment,
it will continue to make them spiral.
last i heard is that mi is running wild through these forests,
but her family continues to enable her so she feels invisible.
until that ends,
i predict the same fate (or worst) like delonte.
i hope for a better and positive end to delonte’s story.
