With whats been going on the last few weeks with Amanda Bynes it’s got the psychologist thinking!?
After a few hit-and-run incidents and her license being suspended and her car being impounded everyone has been thinking about something could be wrong with her.
Clinical psychologist can confirm that there is a definite possibility that the former child star is suffering from some kind of mental disorder!
Clinical Psychologist and Clinical Director of Santa Monica’s Bridges Dr. Trevor Small has reviled that he thinks she may have a Bipolar Disorder:
“Typically when someone has never had any problems with the law, and all of a sudden has a string of legal issues, then this could very well be a sign that that individual is suffering from a mental health issue, such as bipolar disorder.”
He seems right as all the things he described match what Bynes has been doing the last few days:
“A typical symptom of bipolar disorder is when someone starts to behave impulsively, for example driving your car even though you don’t have a driver’s license. A healthy individual would be able to recognize that this would not be a wise decision. When a person is impulsive, a sign of bipolar disorder, they do things without thinking like shaving their hair off or drastically changing their appearance. When someone starts to act erratically and inconsistently with how they used to be, this could also be a sign of bipolar disorder. For example, locking yourself in a fitting room for over two hours. This is not normal behavior. Often times, the person will try and self medicate by using drugs and/or alcohol.”
This girl really needs help but with her being a celebrity it may take longer than her being a normal person as Dr Trevor says:
“Being in the public eye makes it even more difficult to admit you have a problem. A celebrity may worry about the impact a mental health issue could have on their career and personal relationships. There is a stigma attached to bipolar disorder that makes it incredibly difficult to get help. But help IS out there. Once that person is willing to get help and see a medical doctor, they don’t have to suffer anymore.”
