Chris Brown Suffered A Seizure Due To ‘Extreme Emotional Stress’ According To His Rep

Chris Brown at Billboard Music Awards May 2013

Before I delve into the details of Chris Brown‘s medical woes, let me first just say that while I personally cannot stand him for several valid reasons, I don’t wish anyone physical harm. Not even him. Okay?  Allegedly Chris Brown suffered a seizure early yesterday while working in an LA recording studio.  He was not hospitalized afterward, so all we have to go on is what his rep says and his rep, as far as I know, does not also double as medical personnel.

According to a statement issued last night:

“Chris suffered a nonepileptic seizure (NES). … His doctor tended to him this afternoon and attributes the NES to intense fatigue and extreme emotional stress, both due to the continued onslaught of unfounded legal matters and the nonstop negativity.”

I truly believe that the way in which you live your life has a direct impact on your health – mentally, emotionally, and physically. Not just what you eat, smoke, or drink but also the situations you put yourself in and the choices that you make every day.  Far be it from me to have the right to judge anyone else’s life decisions, but from what I’ve seen with my own two eyeballs Chris Brown doesn’t exactly live a life conducive to peace and harmony within.  He’s a ticking time bomb half the time, and has no one to blame but himself. Unfortunately, most people with an “I’m the victim” complex never blame themselves.

By refusing hospital treatment, Chris Brown and his PR team get to make up their own medical reasons for the seizure and try to thrust a guilt trip upon the world.  Somehow, though, I have a feeling that an actual doctor wouldn’t cite the “onslaught of unfounded legal matters and nonstop negativity” as the (very specific) medical cause of his seizure.  Then again, anything’s possible and what do I know? Maybe his minutes-long jail stay really shook him up.

Either way, I think it’s convenient for Chris Brown to say he suffered a seizure when there’s no medical evidence to back it up, but if he did in fact experience such a thing I’m sure it was incredibly frightening.  I just wish it would serve as a wake-up call to him to make some changes in the way he approaches his life, and not make him blame everyone else for his problems even more.
