Amanda Bynes: Mentally Unstable? We Hope Not!

Anyone witnessing the stuff coming out of Amanda Bynes's mouth/twitter/life recently would probably not argue against a diagnosis of the young actress skirting the precipice of mental instability. We just hope they'd be wrong!

According to a few psychiatrists that were presented with a list of things on how she's been acting lately, our hopes start to get dashed. They're saying the behavior could be showing a range of issues.

She's been charged with a DUI and a more than one hit-and-run, she's had neighbors complain that her Southern California home was "dilapidated," she said she wanted Drake to murder her vagina, debuted new double piercings, took a solo trip to a club, and her family wants her to stop it all and move back home!

Should we be chalking this up to celebs being weirdos sometimes? Or should we all be worried about her mental state?

Here's what clinical psychiatrist Mark Goulston says:

"What happens with a lot of these celebrities is that, first of all they are exhausted. Their lives are exhausting. When you are sleep deprived, you get a little crazy. [They may also] self medicate."

And Media Psychiatrist Carole Lieberman, M.D. says.:

"She's been having this strange behavior on and off for approximately a year now. If she sat down on my couch, I would have to sort out the diagnosis from a number of possibilities."

We just want her to be all right, regardless of the issue or its severity. We're not going to sit here and say either way about what's going on, because at this point, only she knows!

What we DO know, though, is that she could've grown into a comedy powerhouse from what she's done in her past, if she had just taken the right shift in material. Easy A was great, and we just wish she had followed a harder, edgier, path — she has the talent to do it, she just needs to get her shizz together!

    If there's anyone here who's mentally unstable it's YOU, perez.

    my guess is schizophrenia. prime age for it to manifest. the girl is unstable, no doubt. too bad she basically has to hurt herself or others to get any help. and then she has to want it and do what she needs to get normal again. manic behavior loves the highs and lows, it makes them happy. I'm sure she barely sleeps or takes care of herself.

    I agree with @Texasannie….Schizophrenia manifests in a person's 20s. She talks to herself, laughs to herself…as if she is hearing voices. She needs to be on meds. I'm surprised her parents aren't in court trying to get power of attorney to at least get her the proper medication she needs.

    Re: texasannie – Where did you go to Med School, and then where did you do your residency in psychiatry? Better yet, how can you diagnose people you don't know from afar, based on (here's the kicker) Perez's "reporting," which diagnosis is a challenge for doctors looking their patients in the face. Mental Illness has a major stigma attached and the armchair diagnosing such as yours part of the problem. You have confused THREE different illnesses. I know because I have ONE of them. Just stay out of this, seriously. This also holds true for the quacks quoted in the article.

    Re: texasannie – I agree…schizophrenia manifests itself in a person's 20s. She talks to herself, laughs uncontrollably, etc. All signs that she is hearing voices. She needs to be on medication. I'm surprised her parents aren't getting a power of attorney so she can get the proper care.

    She's absolutely gorgeous….no wonder all the Hollywood Casting Couch Tramps & Whores are slandering her…..

    while she may show characteristic traits of schizophrenia (and there are different subtypes) ) I'm agreeing with exhaustion.

    on the other hand, I don't think her behavior is that bizarre. and I'm sure there's a sort of "telephone" effect in the reporting of details. Amanda is a funny chick. It's more plausible she's taking us all for a ride.

    I don believe a psychiatrist would publicly diagnose her even if there wasn't a working relationship. There's something very unethical about that.

    Re: mzbang – FAKE Drs. Drew & Phil DIAGNOSE people they've never met before all the time…

    Whatever the reason is, something definitely needs to be done. Amanda can't go on like this! Or she will end up dying and people will say oh we should have done something when we had a chance!

    "According to a few psychiatrists that were presented with a list of things on how she's been acting lately…"
    Yeah, that's the way you diagnose someone with a potential mental disorder. Consult a list of random observations and take a wild guess as to what her problem is. Since she's dressing like a homeless person, perhaps the problem is with her vision. We should send the same materials to an optometrist and get an opinion too.
    This is really stupid. Even for Perez's site.

    Re: magan – I wonder if you get this excited about the half a million mentally ill homeless people on the street? Amanda is a rich little white girl, and a celebrity besides. She'll be just fine.

    She is a great actress, gorgeous in looks, great sense of humor, perhaps it became exhausting being so perfect. I like the girl and I hope she makes it out of whatever funk she might be in.

    Part of me wants her to be doing this for a movie, like Joaquin Phoenix, but I doubt it. She has the same creepy black guys responding to her tweets everyday. She better be careful.

    Hm. Someone I used to look up to as a kid has turned into a complete psychopath.

    Doesn't surprise me.

    She's probably on drugs like Miley Cyrus.
