Amanda Bynes

Mortified At Drake 'Vagina' Comment

EXCLUSIVE

Amanda Bynes
has turned it around in a big way ... and one of the markers is that she is now remorseful about things she did and said when she was at her worst -- particularly her comment about Drake, "I want Drake to murder my vagina."

Sources directly connected with Amanda tell TMZ ... she is in the territory of being her old self again.  They say the fact that the Drake comment "horrifies her" shows she again has a sense of the difference between right and wrong.

But there's more.  We're told Amanda has stopped smoking weed, she's in the process of removing a number of inappropriate tattoos, and she's kind to people with whom she interacts.

Most impressive ... Amanda is now at FIDM -- the Fashion Institute of Design Merchandising in Orange County -- and she's become so self-confident she makes presentations to her entire class and freely interacts with her classmates.

TMZ broke the story ... Amanda was diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolarity.  It's apparent the meds and the therapy are working.

It is bipolar disorder. I have never heard it called bipolarity. I should know, because I am also diagnosed with bipolar disorder. I wish her the best.

My aunt says a study at the university she works at found that if you have any underlying mental issues like bipolar or schizophrenia smoking weed will make them surface so I reckon that's what happened to her

oh really     

The murdering the vagina thing isnt the worst thing any of these people have said on twitter or anywhere else.
I really hope this young girl gets in life in order.
Mental illness is a terrible disease, and people misunderstand it alot.

You people are such ****ing hypocrites she gets a pass but Chris brown who also has mental problems which he now takes prescription drugs for that seem to be working very well he hasn't got into trouble in how long now? Yet he is constantly ridiculed and people are praying for his down fall but Amanda once again gets a pass on everything she's done? Dui and all? Wow then when those blacks play the race card you wonder why they do it? Its because they're usually right
