Steve-O is back in the hospital, he reveals on his blog.

“I’ve now been clean for 115 days, and I’m, again, in a mental institution,” the Jackass star, 33, writes. “I did so much cocaine, ketamine, pcp, nitrous oxide, and all sorts of other drugs, that, quite simply, my brain is f—-d up.”

He adds that though his “cognitive skills are alright … I frequently suffer from horrible mood swings and severe depression.”

Steve-O (who was hospitalized at a mental health unit of L.A.’s Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in March) writes that the “medication that is prescribed to me doesn’t do the trick every day. I’m back in the looney bin trying to get that s—t right.

“The bottom line is that doing drugs f—-d my a– up, and I’m going to be paying for it for a long time, probably for the rest of my life,” he says. “Everyone’s going to make their own decisions in life, but nobody needs to make the same mistakes I made.”

Steve-O pleaded guilty to felony cocaine possession
in June and was ordered to attend rehab for two years.

The plea was part of a deal that will keep the Jackass star out of jail.
