In an interview with Q magazine, Fall Out Boy bassist and songwriter Pete Wentz revealed that he has bipolar disorder.
Wentz told the magazine: "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!"
The 28-year-old musician said he has been on medication since he was 18. "I am on anti-anxiety medicine," said Wentz. "The technical term is Lorazepam. I am supposed to be on antidepressants but I think it's part of my neuroses that I don't take them."
He also revealed that his parents' breakup on his sixth birthday left him unable to express his feelings. "I turned my emotions off like a faucet. I didn't cry until I was, like, 22."
The interview appears in the current issue of the UK music magazine.
