Amanda Bynes, who was reportedly diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder and is on medication, has once again taken to Twitter with some confusing statements.

On Tuesday, the beleaguered actress tweeted that she had been diagnosed with the disorder, but a subsequent tweet, which has since been deleted, seemed to insinuate that it wasn't she who posted the tweet with the diagnoses.

"I was at a friends apartment last night and one of my friends tweeted my phone," the subsequent post said. "sorry guys "

The 28-year-old actress made headlines in October with bizarre behavior and posts on Twitter, in which she accused her father of emotional and physical abuse. Those posts have since been removed.

Since then, she was involuntarily hospitalized after a ruse was concocted by her parents to get her to the hospital. She was later held for a longer period after doctors determined she was not well enough to be discharged.

Later, a conservatorship hearing was held and a judge ruled that her parents would have control over her assets.

Bipolar disorder, also known as manic-depressive illness, according to the National Institute of Mental Health, causes intense emotional periods called "mood episodes." These range from manic (extremely happy) to depressive (extremely sad).

The disorder often appears in the late teens or early 20s and can be controlled with medication.

Since Tuesday, a slew of confusing tweets have been posted by Bynes.
