Amanda Bynes did some pretty weird things last year. She hit a sheriff’s car while DUI. Then she threw a bong. The actress arrived in court wearing multicolored wigs. And the last straw came when she tried to light a fire in front of someone’s house.
She was charged with the offense of drunk driving and sentenced to three years on probation. However, after considerable time spent in rehab and quality time spent with her parents, Amanda seems to be back to normal. She is in her senses and takes short walks and goes to the gym regularly.
Her schizophrenia is retreating leaving her the same old Amanda Bynes she used to be. Her lawyer managed to have her let off some of the charges that were leveled against her in court. But it is a fifty-fifty proposition and she will have to be very careful in the future.
After all that happened she has shown a high degree of maturity. Besides the three years during which she will be closely observed by the authorities, she will have to go to alcohol awareness classes for a period of three months.
The lawyer who represented her was optimistic about his client’s prospects. He said that although there were some twists and turns ultimately things were resolved. It has all ended on a positive note.
Amanda had a bout with both schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. They are very debilitating mental illnesses and it is a miracle that she came out sane on the other side of the tunnel.
Currently, Amanda is chilling out with her guardians in California. Credit especially goes to Amanda’s mother who has been the key figure in her daughter’s recovery from the hellish nightmare she was undergoing.
Amanda will hopefully make it through yet there is always the danger of a relapse. She wants to have her own place but her parents insist that her health and safety is their sole responsibility. She is still under their kind and benevolent care.
