In an interview with “Good Morning America” on Monday, Heisman Trophy winner, Johnny Manziel said he has been diagnosed as bipolar and is taking medication for it. He also wants to play football again.
Manziel said he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder a year ago. He said that he has stopped drinking and was using alcohol as a way of “self-medicating.” He said that there’s no one to blame except himself for the drinking as well as a run-in with the law that included a domestic assault charge. Manziel says he’s been working out and trying to convince some NFL team to give him a second chance.
“I don’t know what kind of comeback it will be,” he said, “but I know I want to get back on a football field to what brought me so much joy in my life and it makes me happy doing as my job.”
