Johnny Manziel Says He's Bipolar, Trying For Comeback

When it comes to Johnny Manziel, it seems like when you compare his college career to his NFL career that he was two different people.

And now we can be sure he was.

Because in an interview with "Good Morning America" yesterday, the Heisman Trophy winner and NFL bust formerly known as Johnny Football said he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder "about a year ago" and has since been taking meds for it.

He added that he has stopped drinking, saying that he had used alcohol as a way of "self-medicating" as he battled depression.

"I am watching all the other guys doing what I want to be doing and I am sitting on a couch being a loser," says Manziel.

"At the end of the day I can't help that my wires are a little bit differently crossed than yours, I can't help my mental makeup of the way that I was created. But I know if I stay on these meds and I continue to do what I am doing right now ... I think my dad, my mom, I think [girlfriend Bre Tiesi], would all agree that they see a drastic change."

And the new, improved Manziel also acknowledged there's no one to blame except himself for the drinking binges documented on social media and a run-in with the law that included a domestic assault charge.

Manziel added that he's been working out and trying to convince some NFL team to give him a second chance.

Let’s hope that he gets it.
