    Good. I want so much for her to get better.

    um…. it's been a week. almost all prescription meds, particularly those treating personality disorders, take at least 28 days to begin to correct the chemical imbalances causing the disease, let alone produce any marked signs of change.

    SOURCE: I am a psychologist.

    Wishing her all the best. This is a physical illness just like cancer, etc.

    I'm glad she's feeling better, but her medication isn't going to "cure" her in a week. I've been on similar meds, and I can tell you that if she's doing any different now it's either coincidence or therapy. She still has a long way to go.

    Shut up, homo. You've done nothing but belittle her, bully her, and do everything you can to profit from her problems. If you were a REAL friend, you'd shut your fucking mouth and give her some space. Your actions prove that you're an opportunistic, piece of shit asshole. I hope karma shits on your in a very huge way.

    Wasn't it just yesterday you were using adjectives like Crazy etc to describe her in your posts? You are aware that liking someone only when they are up and insulting/belittling when they are down is just as bad as bullying right mario?

    Re: fact checker

    This is the internet, you realize you can say you're a psychologist, and no one will believe you right? Also, what psychologist uses the word 'um?'

    Re: fact checker – THANK YOU for pointing that out. It's bad enough that anyone has to suffer through illness, let alone have it speculated and gossiped about.

    She will never be the same. Forget the actress we once new. If she's lucky, she'll be able to work again but with schizophrenia, the odds are that she'll work a couple of years and after that she won't be able to do it. This is a tragedy and I personnally think the marijuana found in her blood - if its true - is responsible for her to develop this mental illness.

    Guys, shut up. He's Perez Hilton, he doesn't give a fuck.

    so incredibly happy to hear she's doing well. a girl her age in this sort of spotlight and developing a mental illness is not at all easy and i think she's stronger than what we give her credit for. it's a long road but it's a start. i hope she doesn't leave though, it's way too early to be letting her out.

    Re: fact checker – I thought a psychologist would know that schizophrenia is not a personality disorder.

    My dad has a mental disorder, and like skizophrenia it is a chronic decease. You will have to take medicine for the rest of your life, just to function normally. She will be normal again, but it will be a constant battle for her.

    I take a "cocktail" of these medications myself and while it does take more like a month to actually see the results of the medication it's not impossible that there are no positive changes so far.
    I know how many times I've humiliated myself or done unsafe, crazy things only to realize it when I was in a "better place" again and wanted to die of shame. I wouldn't wish it on someone who is in the spotlight. She is going to have to be so strong to move past what's happened being thrown in her face.

    The rest of her life will not be more than bitterness and sadness. The time(period) where we live is not ready still to accept, integrate people suffering from mental illness.
    We are as hundred years ago with the homosexuality.

    There is a scientifically proven correlation between marijuana use and developing schitzophrenia. In most people it is harmless but in someone genetically predisposed to the disorder, pot can trigger psychosis. It is a shame because she probably used it to self medicate for something. She will have it for the rest of her life. She will also probably stop taking her meds the second she gets out and throw them away. Most schizophrenics don't believe there is anything wrong with them and often only take the meds " to get out" and get their independence back. It takes years for them to understand they need to take them.

    Amanda has not been Officially and /are Medically Diagnosed with any Specific Mental condition at this present time Stop saying she has.

    I really hope that the judge does not choose to release her just because he sees that she has improved. If he knows anything about these illnesses, it is that there is a huge risk that the mentally ill person will stop taking the meds once out of the facility. People with schizophrenia often stop taking their meds, which is dangerous. After getting off them, you have to decrease the dosage when you start to take them again and then slowly increase the dosage to get back at the point you were before abruptly stopping to use the medication.

    Sorry but I am not having high hopes for this. I think they might release her, she will go back to her old ways until she does something stupid again. Then maybe then the judge will think it is serious enough to render her unable to take care of herself.

    she still needs a someone to make sure she doesn't OD on that crap when she's at home.

    Re: Wow Are You An Idiot – HAHAHA you make these comments which makes you no better than Perez this is his forum so stay away if you do not like. Maybe if you come out of the closet you might be a happier person!

    Re: fact checker – Uh no. I was put on multiple different medications and each time I noticed a difference within the first 3 days. Sometimes even the first day. So excuse yourself "Fact checker" but for someone claiming to be a psychologist you must not know much about your patients or their medications. Im speaking from experience, not a text book.

    Re: Heather – it is not a realistic expectation for the meds to start working that quickly I have never met anyone who has gotten such quick results from their medication before I certainly haven't so you are EXTREMELY lucky if that is true/isn't any kind of placebo effect. The only thing fast acting that I've experienced when it's come to my meds is brutal withdrawl symptoms if I forget them for more than a day. a lot of combinations of medications dont even work well for some people. The realistic expectation that doctors advise when you start taking these medications is that it takes about a month for you to get the full benefit of the medication and even so you are starting at a minimal dose so depending on your situation it's likely going to take awhile to be in a stable place with any kind of deteriorated mental state.

    "HIGHlarious"? This isn't a fucking joke, you sick fucks. This chick has a mental illness. Maybe you should stood up for the rights of those with mental illnesses, as much as you do for people who are LGBT, perhaps then you wouldn't be such a fucking asshole. So shut your fucking mouth.

    …. wow, more ignorant comment award. If you knew anything about schizo… you would know that genes are required for schizo transmission. You must have the schizo gene if the disease eventually activates.

    Re: fact checker – EXACTLY!!! No doubt she suffers from the disease it was pretty easy to tell she could have the "gift" of schizophrenia or mpd that helped her to create all her fabulous characters on The Amanda Show. I've thought it LONG before all this happened. Unfortunately it appears it all got out of control when substance abuse might of failed in quieting the internal riot. I know from experience as someone with bi-polar, ocd, ptsd, and adhd that help does NOT happen overnight! It usually takes me three weeks to get rid of the nausea and dizziness after being off meds for a while or adjusting to a higher dose. Most people are well aware of 30-90 days of adjustment before real change is seen or someone stabilizes.

    Re: fact checker – Schizophrenia is not a personality disorder. Also, medications used to treat acute onset of the kinds of symptoms she seemed to be exhibiting do, in fact, work fairly rapidly.

    I call BS on the claim that you are a psychologist.
