Incidents and allegations reported in the media involving Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli suggests the 20-year-old Italian might be suffering from bipolar.
Not that bipolar suffers should be treated differently from any other person in society however, the point of this article is to highlight separate incidents were Mario has clearly demonstrated irrational behaviour.
Mario can't put his bib on, hilarious!
Mario's Maserati supercar has been impounded 27 times.
Balotelli has reportedly racked up almost £10,000 in parking fines and his white Maserati supercar has been impounded 27 times, leaving club officials with the laborious task of collecting the car.
And when police allegedly pulled him over to ask why he had £25,000 in cash on his front seat, the arrogant bad boy retorted, 'Because I can.'
Rio Ferdinand wink.
FA Cup semi-final win over Manchester United and the infamous Mario wink.
And what about the alleged dart throwing at a fellow Manchester City player?
The red card against Dynamo Kiev...
Mario trips Edin Dzeko.
On the other hand Mario has been known to hand money out like confetti to passers by and of course, he has moments of pure genius.
What is bipolar disorder?
Bipolar disorder (also known as manic depression) causes serious shifts in mood, energy, thinking, and behavior-from the highs of mania on one extreme, to the lows of depression on the other. More than just a fleeting good or bad mood, the cycles of bipolar disorder last for days, weeks, or months. And unlike ordinary mood swings, the mood changes of bipolar disorder are so intense that they interfere with your ability to function.
During a manic episode, a person might impulsively quit a job, charge up huge amounts on credit cards, or feel rested after sleeping two hours. During a depressive episode, the same person might be too tired to get out of bed and full of self-loathing and hopelessness over being unemployed and in debt.
The causes of bipolar disorder aren`t completely understood, but it often runs in families. The first manic or depressive episode of bipolar disorder usually occurs in the teenage years or early adulthood. The symptoms can be subtle and confusing, so many people with bipolar disorder are overlooked or misdiagnosed-resulting in unnecessary suffering. But with proper treatment and support, you can lead a rich and fulfilling life.
Does Balotelli suffer from bipolar? The debate continues via our City Chat forum thread.
