This is just a complicated situation.
While Amanda Bynes seems to be doing so well with her mental state after checking into and finally out of the hospital and rehab, there may now be some new struggles going on.
It's rumored Amanda is hoping for a bit more freedom and a normal life while she's living with her parents. Unfortunately, it sounds like her parents don't see the situation the same way.
In fact, Amanda's parents are apparently keeping a tight watch on her and everything she does as an insider revealed:
"Amanda wants to hang out with her friends and go out and do regular things, but she is telling people that her parents won’t let her out of the house for anything other than school and appointments. She wants to be out doing normal stuff like going to dinner and movies but she’s been saying that she was told she couldn’t."
We can certainly understand their reservations what with the sad way things went down months ago.
But we can also understand Amanda's desire to try to live like everyone else after all she went through. And it sounds like that is all she wants, not more trouble, as the insider added:
"Amanda is really taking her recovery seriously, but having her parents tell her no when she just wants to go see friends is frustrating for her. She has been saying that she’s trying to get her life back but it isn’t happening as fast as she would like."
We sure hope they can all come to an agreement on how to handle all this.
These first months out of treatment are definitely the most crucial, and Amanda deserves a healthy start!
