Lindsay Lohan’s a Bipolar Meth Addict Now

August 2nd, 2010 // 66 Comments

Lindsay Lohan, who should be getting out of jail any minute now, is reportedly being sent to rehab for meth and not cocaine which makes sense now that I think about it. (Shit’s expensive.) Also, she’s apparently bipolar now which, unfortunately to everyone who legitimately has the disorder, is becoming a convenient cop-out for, “My parents whored me out to Disney, so now I don’t know what the fuck.” TMZ reports:

According to a source familiar with Lindsay’s case, methamphetamine and opiates are her “drugs of choice”.
Methamphetamine — also known as crystal meth or simply meth — is a highly addictive stimulant and opiates, generally, have more of a downer effect.
Morningside Recovery — the Orange County, CA rehab Lilo is scheduled to enter — lists opiate and methamphetamine detoxification among its specialties.

I almost posted this on Sunday, but then I figured I should save that kind of drastic action for something that’s actually revelatory and/or groundbreaking. Finding out Lindsay Lohan has a meth habit is like finding out Britney Spears keeps Play-Doh in her purse as a snack. You always assumed but sometimes it’s just nice to have that confirmation. Like finally seeing a Jew eat a penny– For fuck’s sake, Mel! Get outta here.

EDIT: Just kidding. She’s going to UCLA now.

    So, she’s an addict? Wasn’t her mom denying it just a few days ago?

    • Jonesy

      Dena Lohan is mother of the year. Even mother of the year is entitled to make a few mistakes.

    • cee

      who cares, shes never been in a good movie, and her acting is sub par, let her OD or something, waste of life

  2. Sean

    Bi-Polar my ass.

    Although, I do see your point. Her parents whored her out. She never had a normal life and is probably more than a little sociopathic. She has no concept of right and wrong. Or the ability to admit when she is at fault. I am sure than Lindsay will see a judge again in her future.

  3. its me fuckers

    but HEY, she’s fine! I wonder how Dina is going to try and sweeten this one up.

  4. one legged

    oxycodone ftw

    Meth. No wonder she looks like she’s aged about 15 years.

    Also, she’s apparently bipolar now which, unfortunately to everyone who legitimately has the disorder, is becoming a convenient cop-out for, “My parents whored me out to Disney, so now I don’t know what the fuck.”

    It’s writing like this that keeps me coming to this site again and again despite the prevalent douchebaggery. The simple analysis that celebrities are practically mocking the rest of us with their “i has like, bipolar-ness and i duz meth!” The average meth addict doesn’t get to go to a spa retreat for rehab. I wish her sorry ass would get back in jail and get whipped like the rest of us would. Good morning, sunshine, jail isn’t wonderland, and ponies and rainbows aren’t supposed to be flying out of your ass.

  7. buttfuck

    i believe she’s biploar

    • gwen

      I’m bipolar, clinically, and she’s not bipolar. She’s a spoiled hard partying brat. Britney Spears is bipolar. Ben Stiller is bipolar. Lindsay Lohan is not bipolar. She’s trash and an addict.

  8. Mina

    Clarifying because when I’m pissed off I making no fucking sense: I’m agreeing with the writer. Not criticizing him.

  9. Jimbooooooooooooooooooooooo

    I’d like to meth her bi-polars. Please. I love the smell of meth farts wafting through a thong that hasn’t been washed in a few days….. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

  10. feo

    FALSE
    She has been under heavy suervillance with random drug test for months and ALWAYS PASSED THEM CLEAN
    This news was supposed wrongly because the rehab she was sent had meth addiction as a speciallity.

  11. I’d like to throw in a plea to keep LiLo off The Superficial for another week. We all seemed so much happier when she wasn’t mentioned–can’t we get back to those simpler days?

  12. Dank

    Theres no such thing as being bi-polar. Its a made up diagnosis because doctors couldnt think of anything else wrong with these crazy ass people that acted out at random times. Its just another way for them to sell drugs and make money.

  13. Urbanspaceman

    Well isn’t that con-veeeeeeen-ient…?

    • me

      No it is not “convenient”. Meth abuse CAUSES Bi-polar depression. That is one of the reasons why it is such a terrible drug. Just like “Ecstasy” which also causes serious depression. These are dangerous chemicals that really f–k up your brains. Kids need to know this before they try these drugs. It may seem fun while you are doing it, but you are doing chemical damage to your brain that will make you feel really depressed when you are not on these drugs. And you will become miserable or an addict. All drugs are not the same. These drugs are not the same as marijuana, or shrooms. Science education is necessary for making healthy decisions in life. Kids today do not understand the scientific principles of how these chemicals interact with their physiology. This is such a shame, because if they really new that feeling good for a few hours would make them feel like s–t for days afterwards, most of them would not do it.

      • Ian Chalmers

        Well said

      • Nina

        Yeah, I actually have a lot of bi-polar symptoms after having done way too much E and adderall for two years. It fucking sucks, and I regret it so much. Not worth it. I wish Lindsey luck, because I think that depression and lack of self worth leads to the self-destructive behavior of chronic drug use that only makes your problems about a million fucking times worse. A new lifestyle helps, but it takes a lot of work, especially in her case.

  14. Meth causes Bi-Polar..

    FYI: Meth abuse CAUSES Bi-polar disorder. So she is probably not lying about that. I hope she can recover.

    • hateyoufornoreason

      All of you should be card-carrying neuropathic psychiatrists! You are all brilliant, really!

  15. Relates

    Omfg- the commentary was fucking hilarious. When I read the part about Britney keeping play-doh in her purse as a snack, I laughed weirdly to myself for like five minutes.

  16. I know about a half dozen people with bi-polar.

    not one of them did shit like this. in fact one of them is anti-drug related.

  17. JollyJumJuck

    I don’t care how badly her mother raised her. People have been raised by horrible parents and grown up to be model citizens. Others have been raised by model parents and grown up to be horrible citizens. She doesn’t have the mental capacity of a child, so she is completely responsible for her own actions! Yet she not only denies that responsibility, but the tired old joke that is the California “justice” System enables her to deny that responsibility. I’ll bet anything that she is only required to attend a couple weeks worth of rehab before it becomes “optional.” She could gun down twelve innocent bystanders on the street, and end up with a parking ticket.

  18. This is no different that all the celebrities that have gotten caught cheating recently. “No, really, I’m not a douchebag. I have a serious problem. I’m a sex addict”. All a bunch of bullshit. LiLo’s gotten away with her shit for so long, that she has no reason to think there should be consequences. When she’s in rehab, she shouldn’t be allowed visitors, especially not her family.

    yeah really this bitch has no fucking idea how being bipolar is. Fuck u, lindsey lohan.

  25. I’m bipolar too, but I take medicine for it…and I live in one of the top producing meth counties in the country. If she’s ever in Oregon, she might stay. I know all the paparazzi free, meth producing, country towns.

  26. Nikki

    If my mother was Dina Lohan I would be bipolar too. Dina is just in it for the money her children could make for her. Lindsay has a problem and hopefully she will get the help she needs without her parents mooching the money from her,

  27. VeronikaL

    My mother is a psychiatrist and according to her, many people don’t have their first diagnosis of clinical depression or bipolar disorder until they are in their early 20s.

    Lindsay is 22 years old and has been on a steady downhill slope for at least two years now. As for Lindsay’s diagnosis, I assume it is not a self-diagnosis but rather that of a psychiatrist who thoroughly evaluated her, so it doesn’t matter whether or not Lindsay thinks she is suffering from bipolarism, it only matters what her doctors think.

    Here are some of the symptoms of bipolar disorder:

    Symptoms of Mania:

    * Increased energy, activity, restlessness, racing
    * thoughts and rapid speech
    * Excessive euphoria
    * Extreme irritability and distractibility
    * Decreased sleep requirement
    * Uncharacteristically poor judgment
    * Increased sexual drive
    * Denial that anything is wrong
    * Overspending
    * Risk-behaviour

    Symptoms of Depression:

    * Persistent sad, anxious or empty mood
    Feelings of hopelessness, pessimism, guilt, worthlessness or helplessness
    * Loss of interest or pleasure in ordinary activities, including sex
    * Decreased energy, feelings of fatigue
    * Difficulty in concentrating, remembering or making decisions
    * Change in appetite or weight
    * Thoughts of death or suicide

    My friend and I met Lindsay on the Venice beach a few years ago and, believe it or not, Lindsay was actually sweet and friendly, but she seemed at the same time a little sad and lost. We were just going to say “hello” but then decided we’d hang out with her because she was by herself. Lindsay struck both of us as a lonely person who didn’t know what to do with herself, and I felt a bit sorry for her.

    I agree that Lindsay’s parents, and others, have not only permitted but encouraged Lindsay’s bad behavior. The difference between Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears is that Britney Spears has an apparently loving, normal father who has stepped in to help his troubled daughter, while Lindsay has for parents the two finalists in the America’s Biggest Douchebag contest.

    • Mel

      I thoroughly agree.

      As much as the public will protest, prison simply isn’t the place for a person like Lindsay. I’m surprised she hasn’t been sent to a psychiatric facility already. It’s completely apparent to me that that is her real issue, but people are far too ignorant and judgmental of those with legitimate mental illnesses to admit that. They just think she’s another spoiled Hollywood starlet.

      Mental illness knows no bounds, be it one’s race, religion, financial status, or how many times they’ve graced the cover of OK! magazine.

    It’s quite sad, she used to be pretty now she looks like a crack whore

  29. PunkA

    Please, the whore is not bi-polar. She is narcissitic with a drug habit, that has tweaked her brain.. But if she is bi-polar, bring on the lithium, and lets see what it does for her. I am guessing not much. her biggest problem is her way of viewing reality–she is clueless. Narcissism.

  31. JPX

    Please, she’s not bipolar she has borderline personality disorder.

  32. JPX

    Borderline Personality Disorder

    A pervasive pattern of instability of interpersonal relationships, self-image and affects, as well as marked impulsivity, beginning by early adulthood and present in a variety of contexts, as indicated by five (or more) of the following:

    Frantic efforts to avoid real or imagined abandonment.

    A pattern of unstable and intense interpersonal relationships characterized by alternating between extremes of idealization and devaluation.

    Identity disturbance: markedly and persistently unstable self-image or sense of self.

    Impulsivity in at least two areas that are potentially self-damaging (e.g., promiscuous sex, eating disorders, binge eating, substance abuse, reckless driving).

    Recurrent suicidal behavior, gestures, threats or self-injuring behavior such as cutting, interfering with the healing of scars (excoriation) or picking at oneself.

    Affective instability due to a marked reactivity of mood (e.g., intense episodic dysphoria, irritability or anxiety usually lasting a few hours and only rarely more than a few days).

    Chronic feelings of emptiness

    Inappropriate anger or difficulty controlling anger (e.g., frequent displays of temper, constant anger, recurrent physical fights).

    Transient, stress-related paranoid ideation, delusions or severe dissociative symptoms

    • Mel

      YES. This is precisely what I feel she suffers from. Bipolar Disorder is plausible, but I have always felt it was a personality disorder, most likely Borderline Personality Disorder.

  33. VeronikaL

    Those of you who say Lindsay is not bipolar have examined her? A psychiatrist has, and he/she has diagnosed Lindsay as suffering from bipolar disorder.

    I realize that Scientologists like Tom Cruise and John Travolta think that psychiatry is about as effective as witch doctoring, but then again, you can’t all be Scientologists (can you)?

    Oh, and Scientologists believe that our problems are caused by alien souls that have taken us over (no, really). So things could be worse: Tom Cruise could’ve visited Lindsay in jail to try and convert her…

    • Tom Cruise

      I did. Didn’t work. Will try again soon.

    • JPX

      I am a psychiatrist and I work with borderlines daily in a mood disorders clinic. Bipolar Disorder is often mistakenly given as a diagnosis when the real issue is characterlogical (e.g., borderline personality disorder). Bipolar disorder suggests that she has discrete periods of time that can last several days or longer where she is unusually high, hyper, cheerful, excitable, with a decreased need for sleep, racing thoughts/distractibility, and an unusual increase in the number of activities she gets involved in. A personality disorder is pervasive. I have yet to see any evidence of manic episodes but there is certainly enough evidence to suggest BPD. As another noted, they are not mutually exclusive diagnoses. She also would be diagnosed with polysubstance abuse and depression. Borderline personality disorder best explains her behavior.

  34. VeronikaL

    Bipolar disorder can also present itself (that is, co-exist) with BPD (Borderline Personality Disorder). The two diagnoses are not mutually exclusive.

    In any case, I know you have all watched lots of episodes of Dr. Phil and House, but I would prefer to rely on the evaluation of real MDs who have actually examined Lindsay.

  35. Ian Chalmers

    What benefit does she get from partying?

    • Nina

      I think it’s a form of self destruction stemming from the lack of self worth she feels from coming from a totally shitty family. I can relate to that.

    Meth would explain why she has prematurely aged.

    Look at some photos of meth addicts before and after. They can look 10 years older in just a few months. No idea if it is reversible.

  37. VeronikaL

    I’m the same age as Lindsay and…well, girls our age like to party LOL

  38. blah

    i was on her soccer team in grammar school. whattt up csh soccerrrr! haha

  39. This tart is not bipolar! Did they just diagnose her right there in jail. Do you know how long it should take to diagnose a person with bipolar? Unless she is full out manic which makes it rather obvious then they need to be ruling out a whole shit load of other things. If they diagnosed her just by asking her the typical questions asked then she needs to get a real doctor. Proper diagnosis takes a lot longer than that.
    Maybe she has Borderline Personality and or depression, depression is what happens when you abuse drugs and alcohol though. A lot of daddy issues. Otherwise I would say she is a spoiled, self entitled addict. That’s it. This pisses me off so badly because I am one of those people with bipolar disorder. I take my little cocktail of meds daily and I can’t stand them. When little b*tches like the poor suffering hard done by Lindsay decide to use it as an excuse or ploy to get their way, it’s saying that the disorder is a joke. I don’t find it a f*cking joke. In fact one of my first thoughts when I heard this was why the hell do I even bother taking my meds. It’s hard enough to have a mental illness and be treated like everyone else, now if I say I have bipolar is everyone going to scoff at me like it’s nothing because of people like Lindsay. I seriously think that she just helped set back stigma a good 10 years, especially since it’s working out for her, looks like a great excuse for the tarts to come. Only took how many centuries to get it (stigma) where it is now. Oh well as long as Lindsay is comfortable and on her way home soon. Poor thing.
    I think she is truly a very sad, pathetic addict.

  40. jen

    Umm .. yeah.. that’s what her Adderall prescription is… “ADD” pills = appetite suppressant skinny pills = methamphetamine.

    • dsfsd

      Actually most people who take Adderall are not skinny…then again maybe that’s because we actually have ADHD. It makes me hungry

  41. ChakaFro

    She’s NOT bipolar.. She’s going up and down on her meds and something else, borderline & depression. Also Adderall isn’t used for bipolar patients, unless with BP I or II for a long phase of severe drepression which is extremely rare. Get her off the speed for sure, let her soak out the booze, put her on some benzos (Ativan, common in SoCal centers), her Ambien and some Mood Stabliizers, Then maybe she’ll get herself together if she can learn the meds are to help-not blitzkriegh-bop thru…only IF

  42. Mac

    I’ve known many bipolar nubjobs……..she completely is one.
