On the WTF With Marc Maron podcast, Pete Davidson reveals that after entering rehab in December to kick a pot addiction, he was also diagnosed with BPD, which is borderline personality disorder.
“Around October [or] September last year, I started having these mental breakdowns where I would, like, freak out and then not remember what happened after. Blind rage.”
At first he thought it was because he smoking so much weed, but the episodes continued for months after he was sober.
“One of my psychiatrists [diagnosed me]. He was always saying before this big meltdown, ‘You’re probably bipolar of borderline, we’re just going to have to figure it out.’…I’m depressed all the time.”
Davidson’s says he’s been seeing slow improvement with treatment, therapy and new medications.
“I’ve been having a lot of problems. This whole year has been a (explative) nightmare. This has been the worst year of my life, getting diagnosed with this and trying to figure out how to learn with this and live with this.”
