Amanda Bynes says she’s diagnosed as bipolar and manic depressive
(CNN) — Actress Amanda Bynes says she’s been diagnosed as bipolar and manic depressive and is on medication.
“I was diagnosed bi – polar and manic depressive so I’m on medication and I’m seeing my psychologist and pyshchiatrist weekly so I’m fine :D,” she tweeted early Tuesday morning.
In a series of tweets, she also said she has many options “when it comes to working,” and criticized the media, which she accused of lying.
Among the options is a recording deal with Interscope Records, she said.
Last month, Bynes, 28, was admitted to a Pasadena, California, facility on an involuntary emergency psychiatric hold.
Shortly before that, she posted several tweets alleging her father had verbally, physically and sexually abused her.
However, she disavowed responsibility for the accusations in a tweet a short time later: “My dad never did any of those things The microchip in my brain made me say those things but he’s the one that ordered them to microchip me.”
Later, a conservatorship hearing was held in which case a judge ruled that her parents will have control over her cash.
“I need to get a restraining order against Sam Lufti,” she tweeted Tuesday morning, referring to her manager.
She also said her parents have limited her cash flow to $50 a day.
“I got discharged for not being gravely disabled,” she tweeted. “But i am conserved and my parents only give me $50 dollars a day and it’s really annoying.”
“I need to get an apartment and my parents won’t give me access to any of my funds.”
And so went the latest chapter in Bynes’ very public history of odd behavior and several criminal charges.
Bynes was arrested on a DUI charge in Sherman Oaks, California, in September. Her arrest report noted a “disheveled appearance.”
Bynes was charged with a hit-and-run in 2012, hospitalized for treatment last year after a psychological evaluation and put on probation after a DUI earlier this year.
And she was arrested after allegedly tossing drug paraphernalia out of the window of her New York apartment in May 2013.
The latest episodes of odd behavior come a year after her parents told CNN their daughter was “making great strides towards recovery” from mental illness.
She enrolled into the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles at the start of 2014, but she dropped out in the summer.
People magazine reported in 2012 that Bynes tried to emancipate herself while still a minor, though she never moved out entirely.
