Amanda Bynes' fall from grace has been both entertaining and painful to watch. The young former star has been in and out of jail and psychiatric facilities and seems to have pushed away everyone close to her, even her own parents.
Bynes has been spending a lot of time on Twitter recently and her posts have given everyone a glimpse into how her troubled mind really works. She has claimed that she is taking her meds and getting the help she needs. but every few days she pops up in the media in another strange story or report.
Bynes was recently released from the psychiatric facility where she has been getting treatment. Earlier this month, several doctors planned to go before a judge and request that Bynes continue to be held in the facility because she is severely mentally ill and needs more treatment.

She was spotted wandering around Hollywood on Thursday and several witnesses claim that she was acting very strange and seemed out of touch with reality.
Bynes chose to have a Thanksgiving meal at a small Hollywood diner, and the waitress who served her said that she was talking to herself and in a strange mood.
She ordered a bunch of food and then told the waitress she had recently lost 20 pounds, and was extremely hungry. She also told her that she was shy and did not want to be seen eating because she was afraid people would call her fat.
"She kept apologizing when ordering her food, thinking it was a lot for one person to consume. She kept saying, 'Sorry, I know I probably look like a fat a** because I'm ordering all this food, but I promise I'm not. I just don't want anyone to see me ordering all this food because of all this weight I just lost. I don't want people to think badly of me,'" the waitress told Access Hollywood.
She was later spotted at another Hollywood restaurant where she told the server that she was shy and didn't want to be seen because she had recently had a facial procedure that involved a bandage.
Bynes was also allegedly looking for a hotel and was turned down by several different places. She did not go home for the holiday but found the time to post a strange tweet, that she later took down.
"I got released from the hospital that Sam Lufti and my parents arranged to send me to because my dad is humiliated by what he's done," she wrote. "The police filed a report against my dad -- I am not able to be in the same room with him. He is a sexual predator and he SHOULD BE IN JAIL. People need to hear the truth about who I really am."
Do you think Bynes' behavior is a result of her dad molesting her or is she just severely mentally ill as doctors claim?
