Fall Out Boy
rocker Pete Wentz
has spoken out about his battle with depression, admitting there are dark days when he can't get out of bed. The bass player, who is currently dating Ashlee Simpson
, reveals in the new issue of Britain's Q
magazine he has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
He says, "I have manic depression. I obsess over everything. When I am depressed, I can't get out of bed. But right now, it's sunny and 65 in my head, so it's OK!"
Wentz, 28, goes on to reveal he has been on medication for depression and anxiety problems since he was 18, revealing the trauma of his parents separation on his sixth birthday left him emotionally scarred and unable to express his feelings.
He adds, "I turned my emotions off like a faucet."
