Jeff Garlin working hard, after bipolar diagnosis

We appreciate Garlin -- always thought he was hot, although he looked better *before* the weight loss.

And the best part is that now that we know he was not in control when he said those things on set, all is forgiven.

Isn’t that CONVENIENT?

I'm retarded!

Thank you OP. We also prefer the pre-diet Garlin. But if being emaciated is what it takes to keep him around so be it. The world is a better place with Jeff in it.

As if being bi-polar isn't challenging enough, I have read that in addition to having a congenital heart defect, Garlin suffered a stroke last year. It seems essential that he keep his weight down. I enjoy him on Curb Your Enthusiasm and hope he can continue working.

I have a friend who is bi-polar (II). Unfortunately, he doesn't acknowledge that he needs help. He used to take meds that helped him quite well. But then he dropped them because he doesn't trust pharmacy. He is in his manic phase since February and seems to be stuck in it. (Isn't that quote long by now?) If anybody has some advise on how to get him back on meds, feel free to post here.

Call the police R5 and tell them he needs to be sectioned.

What is this bullshit? Didn’t he have some sexist pig harassment scandal? Oh, he was just ill with bipolar, poor fatso.

I have bipolar and it really sucks. I take the pills, live a healthy lifestyle and try my best to manage it, but I still get sick occasionally. I always find it a little hard to believe that somebody can suddenly be diagnosed this late in life. It's pretty difficult to not notice you have it or to even survive to an old age with it.

This rings a little of finding a way to excuse his bad behaviour.

Sadly there is not much you can do about it. It took me reaching rock bottom to realise I had to make my life about managing the illness if I wanted to have any kind of normalcy. It has to be his decision and there's not much anyone else can do to sway it.

He's a funny guy. I think he looks terrific with the weight loss. Godspeed, Jeff; best wishes for your continued journey with bi-polar disorder. It's not easy. I know a few people who have it and still struggle.

He has a huge following in the Bear Community. And he's gay friendly. He will flirt with his gay fans but when someone gets handsy that's when he shuts it down.

It's best his mother Judy isnt alive to see this.

OMG mental illness is so hot right now!

Is 'bi-polar' the new 'dehydrated?'

by Anonymousreply 15November 22, 2022 11:11 PM

It kills me that the very thing he had to do to save his life caused him to lose some of his hotness. Life can be so cruel.

by Anonymousreply 16November 23, 2022 12:17 AM

I'm ashamed to say I could never watch him because his mouth is so weird. He looks like he drools or spits when he talks.

Honey, the only way to stay handsome and sexy to the end of your life is to die young.

Bipolars are manipulative and cruel . They are quite often destructive people and deadly at times .

Is staying the hell away from Larry David part of the recovery process?

Jeff to Larry: "I can't quit u"

The same "2" people reply to themselves over and over here about his "hotness." What the fuck. This fat creep isn't hot.

r4, I'm pretty sure Garlin had a stroke back in 2000, too, just before Curb started shooting.

by Anonymousreply 23November 23, 2022 1:14 PM

Sorry R22 but you clearly do not understand the gay community. Different strokes. Not everyone is attracted to bland, essentially featureless Timothee types.

Why is Susie actress covering for him? Why must she say nice sympathetic remarks about this angry, power tripping sex pest?
