Kanye broke down what his bi-polar journey is like to David Letterman on “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction.” “If you don’t take medication every day to keep you at a certain state, you have a potential to ramp up and it can take you to a point where you can even end up in the hospital. “And you start acting erratic, as TMZ would put it,” Kanye said. “When you ramp up, it expresses your personality more. You can become almost more adolescent in your expression. This is my specific experience that I’ve had over the past two years because I’ve only been diagnosed for two years now.” Kanye says he’s found that he often becomes paranoid. “When you’re in this state, you’re hyper-paranoid about everything. Everyone — this is my experience, other people have different experiences — everyone now is an actor. Everything’s a conspiracy. You feel the government is putting chips in your head. You feel you’re being recorded. You feel all these things. You have this moment [when] you feel everyone wants to kill you. You pretty much don’t trust anyone.” Kanye said his talent could come from being bi-polar. “That’s just the reality. If you want these crazy ideas and these crazy stages, this crazy music and this crazy way of thinking, there’s a chance it might come from a crazy person.”
