Kerry Katona has shared a positive update on her health, revealing that she is no longer taking medication for her bipolar but admits she often suffers from manic episodes.The former singer, 41, has never shied away from discussing her health and lifestyle, admitting that her famous interview on This Morning back in 2008 was not related to drink or drugs.Kerry appeared to slur her words during the interview with Fern Britton and Phillip Schofield, with many claiming she was under the influence – a claim she has always denied and insisted it was the result of her bipolar meds.Speaking on GB News' Breakfast with Eamonn & Isabel, she revealed that she has stopped taking medication.Sharing an insight on her current condition, Kerry explained: "I'm very hyper and I get very manic."I have really manic episodes and these can last for weeks and then I come crashing down, that is almost like being on a drug itself."They are the traits of being on some kind of drug anyway."The television star went on to say: "I went on lots of different medications which they call it trial and error to find the right kind of dosage for your manic and depressive episodes."There was a very famous interview where because of my medication, it makes your speech very very slowly because I can be very manic and things are 100 miles an hour in my head I'm very animated but I'm on no medication at the moment."Isabel interjected, adding: "That's your choice then, does it dampen how you feel?

I ask you that because we look at people like Kanye West for example who has very publicly been having displays of bipolar recently, these long episodes."But also many people say he's a genius, are you afraid of taking medication because you'll lose some of the benefits.

Families frustrated by New Jersey school district abruptly relocating teachers, staff
CHERRY HILL, N.J. - Families in the Cherry Hill School District have grown frustrated that teachers have been abruptly relocated to other schools without explanation. Students and parents packed into a Cherry Hill School Board meeting Tuesday night to demand answers following the sudden transfer of their beloved teachers to other district schools. "Since we have gotten no reason, I think it’s punitive. I think it’s personal," one student said. District sources say nine teachers were moved out of Cherry Hill High School East and a handful of others moved from Cherry Hill High School West. Several staff changes were also made in three district middle schools."I feel like just switching around for the sake of switching around teachers, they don’t realize how much it effects our family in the history department, the family of teachers and all the established relationships with the students," a student said. Cherry Hill School District Superintendent Joseph Moloch said some level of teacher reassignments happen every year, but he admitted that more are taking place this time around. School officials would not talk about specific teachers, citing personnel issues and privacy, but said they don't make the moves lightly. Advertisement"We take a look at each one of the teachers and where can his or her talents make the most impact or make continued impact," Moloch said.
