One-time University of Toronto professor and clinical pyschologist Jordan Peterson has another fight on his hands these days.
The 58-year-old Edmonton native who drew attention in his U of T days for battling Bill C-16 is, according to the UK tabloid The Sun , now fighting off the conronavirus and a year-long battle with prescription drug addition.
According to his daughter Mikhaila who has been feeding the Sun exclusively the details of her father’s health battles, Jordan Peterson caught coronavirus in a Serbian hospital while recovering from an over-reliance on the anti-anxiety drug Benzodiazepine.
Also according to his daughter, Peterson is battling pneumonia for the second time this year.
“Life is just not good, things are not good right now,” she told The Sun. “He’ll get better, but he’s definitely taken a step back and it’s just really unfortunate… it’s been a disaster.”
Peterson has been dealing with health issues since 2016.
