Konnan Discusses Suffering From Manic Depressive Disorder



This week on MLW’s Konnan Show presented by Masked Republic’s LuchaShop.com, Konnan had a lot to say about the erratic nature of many of wrestling’s top stars over the years. He even revealed for the first time that he himself suffers from Manic Depressive Disorder.

“When I was 16 years old, I had gotten arrested and they sent me to a psychologist to see what my problem was,” said Konnan. “They said that I was a manic depressive and I got scared because I heard the word ‘manic.’ What am I, a maniac or something? But that would happen to me. Sometimes I would go into these deep funks of depression where I just didn’t want to talk to anybody or do anything. I didn’t want to be around anybody, but then I would have these super euphoric highs where I just wanted to talk to everybody and I was in a really crazy mode.

“I would go between these two things and I remember talking to Raven, who is another very creative guy and he used to tell me to take Zoloft. He said it was an antidepressant. So I would take it, but I think I wouldn’t take enough or I wouldn’t take it long enough.”

MLW’s Konnan Show is available on MLW.com, iTunes and syndicated by Stitcher.com. Carlito jumps on with Konnan, Court and Mister Saint Laurent next Monday on www.KonnanShow.com.
