Amanda Bynes

10 Hours of Sanity...

1 Hour of Crazy

EXCLUSIVE

Amanda Bynes has been true to form in the hospital where she's being held on a psychiatric hold -- she's completely lucid for long stretches, and then goes off the handle crazy. 

Sources with knowledge of the situation tell TMZ ... doctors have already determined Amanda is suffering from a severe mental illness "with schizophrenic tendencies."  We're told she's aware "there's a good Amanda and a bad Amanda."  When she talks about the bad Amanda she almost mimics an exorcism, pulling at her body as if to remove the demon, and even biting herself.

We're told yesterday Amanda was lucid for 10 hours -- she was kind, quiet and nice.  During that 10 hour period the staff questioned her about the fire she started Monday and her personality changed radically.  She got frustrated and "shut down."  But she still remained "normal."

After 10 hours of normal, out of nowhere, her eyes widened, she started to grill the staff about her dog (the one she soaked in gasoline).  The staff then told her the dog was safe with her parents, and Amanda went nuts, saying "They'll kill it, just like they tried to kill me."  This went on for an hour.

Amanda then got incoherent and so out of control she had to be physically restrained.

And, we're told, Amanda was extensively drug-tested, and everything came up negative, except for marijuana.

And there's this.  Initially Amanda was placed with another female patient, but she started berating and insulting her to the point they removed Bynes and put her in a room by herself.

How is this info getting leaked? Isn't there such a thing a doctor patient confidentiality? Sounds about right though. Bipolar/manic. It's no picnic. Without meds they are lunatics. With meds they are zombies.

I do not believe this bullshyt post one bit.

Only the doctors and Bynes know what is happening in that hospital. Anyone else claiming knowledge is full of shyt and needs to shut the fvck up. Like some doctor is going to go gossip to someone else about what is transpiring! Jesus TMX, how low can you go?

That's sad. Losing you mental faculty's has to be worse than any physical illness. When your mind is gone you can never be normal again. Taking mind altering drugs never fixes the problem.

Am I the only concerned about how TMZ repeatedly get people to violate HIPAA laws by dangling a little cash their way? I mean, it's immoral, unethical and flat out illegal. The people need to be fired.

Wow, whoever is releasing this sort of information about a patient and their condition is flagrantly violating all sorts of Hipaa regulations. Enough for people to lose their jobs and have the facility seriously fined.
