Amanda Bynes

Parents Say She's Paranoid...

Hemorrhaging Money

7/26/2013 10:41 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


The parents of Amanda Bynes believe she's a substance abuser who has become paranoid, delusional and is draining her bank account ... this according to legal docs obtained by TMZ.

Amanda's parents filed papers in an attempt to win a temporary conservatorship.  In the docs, they say Amanda has become "extremely paranoid about being watched," and she covers smoke alarms with towels and tapes windows shut to prevent cameras from shooting her.

The parents go on -- Amanda has "profound issues with her body image" and is "obsessed with the fact that she (and others) are ugly."

The parents say Amanda had $4 million in the bank, but is blowing a huge amount of cash -- she spent $1.2 mil in a very short amount of time.  Amanda withdrew $100k on June 4 and another $100k on July 2 and the parents have no idea where the money went, but they mention they believe she spends "a substantial amount" for marijuana and other illegal substances.

The parents say Amanda doesn't connect with reality, telling them she "cabbed it" from New York to L.A.  The parents believe she's homeless.

The documents described what TMZ first reported ... that the parents are hanging their hats on the driveway fire incident to show Amanda is a danger to herself and others.

The court denied the petition for a temporary conservatorship Friday morning, because the judge wanted more info.

TMZ broke the story ... doctors suspect Amanda is schizophrenic.

This judge is an idiot! If he does not agree to the conservatorship, and Amanda is released from the psychiatric hospital, free to stop taking her meds and left to make her own decisions again, a disaster will be in the waiting AND this idiot judge will be directly responsible. Amanda's family have been waiting for an incident like this to they can intervene and gain control of the situation and get Amanda the help that she needs. Now this judge is going to prevent the family from stepping in. This time, no ome was injured in the fire. What will happen next time, and there WILL be a next time. Mental illness does not just go away.

Someone should ask her if she is using the implanon birth control. It's an implant that goes in a women's arm and is "good" for 3 years. This BC effects women differently. Some women 's body's adjust and have only a few side effects. However just as many women who have the implant can literally go crazy if their body's are rejecting the synthetic estrogen that is being pumped into their body. IMPLANON releases over twice the amount of synthetic estrogen then a women's body is normally used to. some women just bleed everyday for all 3 years, (and no one finds that abnormal?) or have a combination of (or all of) the following side effects ruining their daily lives. anxiety attacks, panic attacks, loss of interest in sex, hair loss, severe mood swings, sweating profusely, sore body parts, severe depression, suicidal thoughts, personality changes. and even hallucinations. My daughter and I were very close. We both knew what was causing these changes, I could see it changing her daily. When she died, she was house bound. She couldn't take the attacks and weird behavior that this thing caused. My daughter went from a fun loving, focused 24 yr old to a scared, serevely depressed young lady of which the suicidal thoughts got the best of her one night while i was away. No she wasn't on drugs. She lived with me. i only worked part time we were together 99.9% of the time. We knew what the problem was, we could not find a doctor willing to take it out, you see IMPLANON is non-x-ray-able. No way to find it. and it moves around in your arm. She had it put in in another state while at her dads. came home to me, 10 months later she was gone. Not one doctor she talked to was willing to remove it even as they saw her mental anguish and how this BC was detrimental to her over all health. Seems doctors in the UK (where it is now banned) were being sued because of the scars (one women from her arm pit to her wrist) trying to locate it. you think I am joking, I AM if you are depressed, have suicidal thoughts, see personality changes severe personality changes, go to your ob/gyn immediately and have this BC removed before it gets the best of you. Oh and good luck with that. Even the doctor who implants the thing try and talk you out of having it removed because it's a pain in the ass to remove, because they're never really sure of where it ended up. CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS, and there is no way to find it because it doesn't show up in x-rays. but hey, the one they (Merck Pharmacueticals has replaced it with NEXPLANON. only difference is this one a doc can find if he x-rays the arm. So someone please, ask this young actress if she has it implanted. You maybe saving her life if you do.
