When the former Nickelodeon starlet had a very public nervous breakdown last year, I feared the worst. The prognosis for chronic schizophrenia — which is what the reported symptoms suggested — is not encouraging. The farther the disorder progresses before the patient gets treatment, the less likely recovery is, and by the time a judge ordered Amanda Bynes into treatment, she was completely bonkers. So it is surprisingly good news that she may be getting better:
According to some recent photos, the star has been undergoing treatments to remove the angel wings tattooed on her arm. . . .
The decision to remove her tattoo is likely coming as part of Bynes’ post–rehab lifestyle change. The actress was released from rehab in early December after undergoing four months of treatment for mental illness. Since her release, Bynes has taken big steps to put her life on a positive track.
Soon after rehab, Bynes debuted healthy long blond hair that reminded the world of her pre-Twitter meltdown days. This month, the 27–year–old has enrolled in fashion school to kickstart a new career direction.
Most people take sanity for granted, but if you’ve ever known someone who went nuts, you thank God for every sane day.
