Thats true. I learned that the hard way

And you can't teach an old dog new tricks🤷🏿‍♂️ What's his point?! It's true you can't help a druggie who ain't ready to quit drugging. A lush who ain't ready to stop lushing, but Maia suffers from severe mental health issues. Many times they have conservators because they're incapable of making rational decisions. Asking for her number isn't help. Sending a team of specialist in to innact a decisive plan is. Not that LL is obligated or even capable. Reaching out online though is nothing more than any of us could have done. Hell I could do that. We follow each other on insta🤷🏿‍♂️

^^^^^ But you're a nobody. So you reaching out online is meaningless, thats not the case for LL....have your seat.

HHIC said...

^^^I'm nobody to you. Just as your father was🙂 Very obvious in those who lash out online.

@2:21 A team of people may better assist Maia's situation. But that doesnt take away from what LL tried to do. You have to watch your tone. He knows her and could probably give her the resources that you think you can but cant. (Not trying to be harsh)

I recently suffer from severe mental depression and I really need the help, thankfully my insurance covers to see some therapists in Queens. I booked my appt for next week. But, if anyone has any suggestions on who i can also try, let me know.

I am willing to seek help

EXACTLY. SHE HAS MORE LIVES THAN A CAT. HOW MANY MORE PEOPLE ARE GOING TO TRY AND SAVE SOMEONE WHO OBVIOUSLY DOESN'T WANT TO BE SAVED. SHE LIKES GETTING HIGH SO LET HER BE SHE'S GROWN AND HAVING A MENTAL ILLNESS CAN'T BE HER EXCUSE FOREVER. NOT EVERYONE WITH MENTAL ILLNESS IS A CRACKHEAD AND EVERY CRACKHEAD IS NOT MENTALLY ILL.

LEAVE THIS SNAGGLED TOOTH ASS GIRL ALONE.

2:51 I HOLLERREDDD!!!! HAHAHA!!!

But I agree with your original post, I think everyone knew she would reject the help... I thought he was going to put a plan together to make her seek help... but oh well...

Try God @ 2:53. I had depression but worshipping God gave me hope and peace despite my circumstance. Also focus outward and not inward. Spend ur energy trying to help someone else. Exercise, get a new top or manicure. Decide to make life happen for you.

Don't save her, she don't want to be saved!

@2:53 I take no offense, and thanks for sharing your story👍🏿 LL hasn't done anything that many others havent done. To throw in the towel publicly, like you actually did something other than what you did publicly🤷🏿‍♂️ Asking for her number yesterday was a nice gesture. Proclaiming he can't help if she don't want it the next is...I mean damn. Again I say-He's not obligated, maybe not even capable, but come on. Of course she's going to reject his advances. She's embarrassed, ashamed, a shell of the little girl he knew, plus she's mentally ill. She needs much more than an olive branch. She needs the whole tree...

Has anyone in NYC seen LL out in drag?? That girl's face is smooth. No facial hair and he's bald which mean a good wig will fit good.

DEF - God first, pills second! I am 46 years old and I have been bipolar since childhood. I didnt get on the right meds until 2011. Is it the miracle pill?? YOU DAMN RIGHT IT IS. Keeps me from being depressed and going the F off on folks about simple shat. Let me just say, some folks with bipolar dont act like this, some folks have it worse than others. I live a normal life, been with my job for 23 years, corporate world, beautiful home, nice cars, adult son, married once. I prayed and started meditating and going to church on a regular basis. People walking around here like they're normal..yea ok..most of y'all have bipolar or some form of mental illness and just dont know about it. IN DENIAL. She will NEVER get right until she gets help BUT she already admitted to not wanting help. It was nice of LL to offer his help tho.

How was he/she lashing out? You ARE a nobody. How are you gonna compare a superstar reaching out online to your NOBODY ass? It's a stupid comparison.

If someone really wants to reach out to help me, I'd prefer them to reach out directly, not on social media. Reaching out online just says to me that the other person is looking for public brownie points. When my Facebook friends have meltdowns publicly, I inbox them to check in. I don't care about looking like a hero to the rest of the world.

Tippie Toes said...

I'm on the fence with this one even though LL reached out to her to assist I can't help but wonder what happened to her while on set. Hollyweird is known for being pedo's and molesters who knows what she experienced to make her flip.

Unknown said...

@HHIC(3:27pm), and you can clearly tell due to the tone of the post. Exhibiting that type of disposition when posting makes me wonder how rational this poster is offline.

@HHIC.....Grow up. Like Seriously
That other commenter disagreed with you so you resort to childish taunting huh ?

Well I was raised in a 2 parent home with a Loving father.

IF you did too, then why resort to that?


On topic:

When people don't want help the best thing to do is pray for them.

Once they get to a better place mentally then they will be more receptive to your help.

HHIC said...

@4:00 oh I can imagine. Miserable. Is what it is. Believing themselves to be as important and relevant as they believe LL is would indeed boost self esteem. It starts within🙂

HHIC said...

@anon I'm not even certain you're not the same person under multiple comments. Good luck, and always wipe from front to back👍🏿

There are different levels of depression and different levels of mental illness. Unfortunately when you mix drugs with a mental illness you are even further changing what's wrong with your brain chemistry. I know a man who smoked crack and the crack use led to schizophrenia. He no longer does crack but the damage is done.

@432

You just told on yourself. Nobody said it was you or called you out so why are you even in defense mode? Hit dogs always holler. Idiot.

Anonymous said...

Some of yall sound so stupid. How was he supposed to contact Maia directly? You really think LL has her number? Do you think her phone is even on? You think he is gonna send a message to her inbox so it can get lost in the hundreds of messages Naia probably receives and ignores? Reaching out in a public manner is clearly the most logical option to anyone with a fully developed brain.

Being in love with god relizeing that he is in control of your destiny and letting all them devils go helps cope with life. She needs a husband also. Alot of woman are missing a good man.

@4:58 And an incontinent bladder will leak����‍♂️ I responded to those who @'d me. Call your Father, it's never too late. Unless he's dead. Seance maybe?��

That seance comment has me weak. I'm gonna go lay down .... Bwahahahaha.

It is clear that Malia is self medicating and is not wanting help---now. It doesn't mean that she is incapable of seeking help in the future,but she has to want it. And right now, she is in NO condition to make rationale decisions for herself.

I remember when she was on Iyanla's show, she was in a therapeutic community living, with others,while recriving on going therapy and medication. And if memory serves me, she was there for an extended period of time, maybe a year at least. I think what could have happened to Malia is that at some point, she had that false sense that she was healed and can now lead a life w/o the meds and support, which is a definite recipe for disaster. If her on video doesn't prove my point, I don't know what does.

I just hope people, especially the ones on here with the insensitive comments, understand that mental illness is REAL. And those who suffer from it and refuse medication management, will more often than not,use illegal drugs to cope and or ease the symptoms of the disease.

As for LL, I think I would have reached out to her privately and not on social media. Clearly she isn't hard to find and definitely has enough resources to track her down in a nano second. I'm sure he meant well, but he probably knew there was a high likely hood of her refusing his help.

Think about, basically he's calling her out, so what do you think someone whose in denial about the MI gonna do?

Well, I for one will pray for her because my many years of experience in the helping profession, I see how MI can affect individuals and families alike.

Take it as you will Snitch but the lurkin has been real.I truly preciate' this site but it's been really serious lately I am confused whether to sip or pour and I see the alley heated looks like they caught some people here that thought they were doing good research. What can I say I got to stay hip :(

Nobody laughs at your jokes so you have to co-sign yourself. How pathetic. At least wait thirty minutes so it won't be so obvious. Smh.

Laa soul said...

@2:53pm. First I am happy to hear that you are seeking help, that of course is part of the first steps. What I would recommend also is that you also vet your therapist, meaning, make sure he/she is clinically trained in the area you are seeking help with. And ask them how long have the been in the field collectively. Are they experienced working with individuals and or couples, in the event you have a significant other who is supportive of you through your process? In the event you to work on some couples therapy as well.

Also, remember your time with your therapist is valuable. They are there to listen. They are also there to give you the tools and resources necessary to help you manage your condition. And be open to new ideas and ways of thinking that may be presented to you.

And finally, don't be afraid to change therapist if you are not getting what you think you need in the therapeutic relationship. It's the same when you don't like a particular doctor or dentist, you have the right to change. But don't change because you do not like what you are hearing. Sometimes therapy is not meant to be comfortable for us.

An effective therapist will challenge you as well all for the benefit of making you a better person.

I hope this is helpful. And take care!

@5:48 Young... how much of this is one person??? LMAO ohhh nahh. Maia is not the only one asking for help.

Anonymous said...

5:36 those are great points about the story I forgot. All bickering on the thread aside, mental illness in the Black community should be dealt with compassionate and with empathy as you're advocating. Kudos and thanks for being positive during these dark times.

Look y'all - it's sad but true. I had my time out in them streets doing drugs. I remember my dad walked in on me and (this is the mental place I was in) he tried to have this long talk with me and the entire time I was like *blank stare*. When he finished he was like "I can be around you if you are doing to use". I said "Well when are you leaving cause I'm trying to finish this sack".

It probably broke his heart but that was where I was at during that time. I Did Not Care. BUT I can tell Maia has some type of awareness because she was trying to hide her teeth. She knows she needs help but it's a long road to recovery. It's very hard especially from the heights (fame, $, celebrity) from whence she's fallen. Mental Illness only makes it that much harder.

I pray for her and send her positivity. Sometimes these things have to run their own course.

At least LL reached out.

That is rare for celrbtards. It shows that he has a heart.

@Laa Soul those were some kind, beautiful words. I really liked how you went into detail when you helped me seek a legitimate psychotherapist. You are so kind.

People really do care in this world. Smooches

I did laugh at the joke and I found it funny. I am not HHIC.

Anyhoo.....Maia will not seek help until SHE wants to and not a day sooner. With that said, it's best to just pray for her and let her be.

R in NYC says:

@ Prissa....you're right since she reached a certain level of fame it's even harder for her to recover. This reminds me of that mentally ill Olympic ice skater Debie Thomas that was famous, a orthopedic surgeon and now lives in a bed bug infested trailer with an abusive white man.

@7:04pm. I'm so glad to see you were able to read my post I was afraid that you wouldn't see it. And you are more than welcome. I'm also glad that I could be of assistance!

@5:49 EXACTLY...

Clearly HHIC is attention seeking.

Sounds like Daddy Issues to me...

But let's not feed the Troll

Because she is already working overtime Co-signing herself.

(But we are not supposed to know that)

You're not mad at me you're mad at your dad🤷🏿‍♂️ No need to cosign myself. Much like he didn't cosign your birth certificate🙂

I hope he's open to helping her if she changes her mind.
