Amanda Bynes Reportedly Displaying Signs Of Schizophrenia; Officials To Seek 5150 Extension

This does not sound good.

While one source has revealed that Amanda Bynes has been “doing well” throughout her 5150 hold and “knows when to…act normal,” it seems that might not actually be the case.

Following the troubled actress’ run-in with the law — from bong-throwing to her latest fire-on-lawn incident — medical officials will reportedly seek a two week extension on her evaluation as Amanda is allegedly believed to be displaying symptoms of schizophrenia.

We only hope that Amanda gets the help she needs. What with this evaluation and her parents’ request for conservatorship, this might just be what she needs.

As long as all parties act in her best interest.

    Bullshit. Mario bullied the girl because he was jealous of the attention she was getting. All of this fake concern with her well-being makes me sick.

    And you, Perez, should feel like a complete and utter asshole for constantly baiting and prodding her the way that you did. When someone who has an obvious mental illness says something you don't like, any decent human being would take the high road and ignore it, not make a huge deal over it. You claim to be anti-bullying, yet have no problem doing it to someone who has mental problems. Shame on you.

    Symptons of schizophrenia includes social isolation, incorrerent/disorganized speech, hallucinations, bizarre delusions, hearing voices in your head, sloppy of dress/hygiene, clumsiness, irritability. The desease more common on young adults and it is worsen by use of maryjuana. Does it rings the bell?

    Mario only bullies people in the spotlight, to try to steal some attention for himself. He only cares about his own fame-whoring. He'll probably start a prayer circle for her next. Losing weight is easy. Changing on the inside is the hard part. He'll never admit it, but he hasn't changed.

    I still think multiple personality disorder fits in this puzzle… poor kid. Glad she's getting good help. But seriously, lose the hoodies n tees.

    People need to quit blaming Perez, he's reporting it and we're reading it. But most of all, people just need to stop putting any blame on her family and friends. Her dad was a dentist in Southern California and her mom worked as well. They most likely have more money than her, they don't need her money. I don't know them, but if you google them they look like nice people, apple pie. From what I've read, they are doing everything they can and it must be a nightmare for a parent to deal with this. The lady's driveway has a couple of black marks on it, and she probably always wanted one those cobblestone ones … let's make the parents pay for it, instead of a pressure wash!

    I called this months ago. I'm also thinking that those pictures taken of her that she insists isn't her is a multiple personality issue. At the very least, she's paranoid-schitzophrenic

    I can't believe the people on here are blaming Perez for what is obviously a severe mental illness. This wasn't caused by "bullying". It is an illness. Amanda wasn't even a blip on the radar until SHE started acting out. I'm glad they want to hold her longer because she needs therapy. She has needed it for a few years. Now maybe she'll be forced to get it. And by the way, saying someone needs help isn't bullying. Pointing out HER actions isn't bullying either. Nor did anything Perez say force Amanda to tweet like a nut job over the last year or light someone's driveway on fire.

    So maybe its time to stop making fun of her people??? Seriously. This is severe bullying now if anyone bothers her again.

    Perez offers an option of veiwing Amandas "Evolution of Messy Hair" . Now does he really want to continue to publicly humiliate his "friend in need"? She is not ok at all so Im wishing her the best of care and love! Hoping she is able to understand her situation and accept help and make changes. The saddest thing is……people could have been soooo injured

    Re: I – We're not blaming Mario for her mental illness. We're saying adults don't bully people with mental illnesses. They don't wear tshirts to mock that illness. And I love when Mario knows he's been called out, so he posts tons of shit so this gets bumped to page 3 or 4.

    Re: Yeah Whatever Asshole – I guess you don't "get" that there needed to be attention directed to this. The fact that Perez publicized this, in any way, in my opinion is the reason Amanda is in a position to get help now. There are probably thousands of news agencies reporting on this currently. There will always be haters here, like you, but Perez is my hero right now. Viva Perez!

    If she was in her parents neighborhood, chances are she may have gotten into a fight with them about money and tried to hurt them. Maybe she was trying to haul the gas over there and something went wrong. She needs serious help.

    Yep, I posted that, this illness was probably what she had. She kept saying it wasn't her when she was video taped at certain places. She probably doesn't remember. Glad she's getting help.

    At first I thought Amanda was doing this for attention and the press. Now it just appears that she has hit a serious roadblock in her young life. This is really sad. I hope she gets the proper help she appears to desperately need.



  22. 22

    Hope she gets the help she needs. Sending good vibes her way :)

    Re: Morty Pie
    Perez reporting stories about Amanda is why she's getting help now?
    Not the fact that she "allegedly" set fire to a strangers driveway, and the "bizarre" answers she gave when the police questioned her about it?

    Re: mrjdssr@aol.com – If that is your real email, not a good idea at all to put it on the Internet, or you will get a lot of spam. Ask the mods to delete it. I think there is a button down at the bottom of the home page to contact Perez's people for tech support. I know I have contacted them once.



  25. 25

    I think the most upsetting thing about this whole story is how public her illness is. This should be something private, and shame on anyone being a "close source" cashing in on leaking details of her medical condition. I truly believe that anyone seeking medical attention no matter what the condition should retain privacy without the fear of having medical conditions revealed.

    what annoys me is the abuse people get by trolls who come here and bash perez and anyone who defends him i think its they who needs help!!



  27. 27

    She won't listen to the doctors because she'll think they're too ugly to treat her.



  28. 28

    I think this website blocked my other comment cuse they thought it was too "real" and mean. Hey sometimes the truth hurts, but the truth is the truth.

    According to the DSM-IV-TR in order for diagnosis of schizophrenia a person must have two or more of the fallowing symptoms for a one month period or more: Delusions, hallucinations, disorganized speech, disorganized behavior, or negative symptoms such as affective flattening, alogia or avolition. Before anyone can be diagnosed with this disorder schizoaffective disorder and mood disorders with psychotic features must be ruled out. I very much doubt that in the short time she has been put on a 5150 hold, doctors are already considering schizophrenia, as it takes time to rule out other disorders that have similar symptoms.

    As a doctor (not psychiatrist but I deal with the mentally ill) it would be irresponsible to diagnose her without talking to her, but I've thought since this started that she had schizophrenia. So sad. She's the right age, her personàlity change was dramatic, she has odd obsessions and illogical thought processes/wording (the fixation on the word "ugly", unprovoked outbursts), paranoia( especially the reported covering of windows and smoke detectors), socially inappropriate behavior and dress, etc. I'm glad she's getting help.

    Interesting notes:a 5150 hold is only for severe mental illness that poses a threat to self or others. It cannot be placed if there is a suspicion it's a drug or alcohol effect. Second, long term heavy marijuana use increases the risk of schizophrenia in patients with an underlying risk genetically. Lastly,lets give her industry targets some credit. Rihanna, nick, Courtney love etc all seemed to realize this was mental illness. Unfortunately, you can't legally force an adult to get help until they threaten themselves or others. I had a patient with schizophrenia whose family loved him and tried to care for him. He refused his medications and ran away from home in a snowstorm. Repeatedly. He had severe frostbite. Still didn't qualify for an emergency detention hold even though his mother begged for one to be placed. Amanda bynes' parents are in an awful situation and it will be hard to extend the hold if she doesn't want care.

    Re: Yeah Whatever Asshole – I'm sorry, but you claiming anyone's a bully is a HUGE joke. You lost all credibility the minute you started picking on an innocent baby. Your comments are sick and vile. The point you were trying to make would have been valid had you not resorted to such childish sickening insults. Your one of the biggest bullies on this site. Which begs the question, Why do you keep coming back? You hate him so bad yet can't stay away from HIS site. Perez may be obsessed with Amanda but YOU are obsessed with Perez, and that pretty sick. Seek help.
