Amanda Bynes' Life After Psychiatric Hold Is "Sad And Isolated," Sources Say
It's been over a month since we reported that Amanda Bynes was released from the hospital following a lengthy psychiatric hold. Prior to checking herself in for help, the Hairspray actress was found wandering naked through downtown Los Angeles while coming out of a psychotic break. Her parents have expressed no plans to reinstate the embattled starlet's conservatorship, though a new report from TMZ reveals that life since leaving the hospital hasn't been so cheery for Bynes.
Sources close to the 37-year-old said she's presently focusing on where she's going next in life while prioritizing her medical needs. She apparently doesn't have many people in her life at this time and isn't putting the same energy into her passions as she was before her incident. Though she no longer acts, Bynes has poured plenty of time into other creative pursuits, such as fashion design and pursuing the art of being a nail technician.

Amanda Bynes Keeping to Herself While in Recovery
Though she's not quite her normal self again just yet, the California native has been diligent in attending her outpatient appointments. Additionally, she's been spending time speaking with therapists and staying on top of her medications. It's certainly sad to hear that Bynes has been mostly alone, but friends are happy to see she hasn't reunited with her toxic ex, Paul Michael. The pair were planning a wedding, though he wasn't adequately supporting his partner while she was struggling.
For the time being, the former child star is apparently in frequent contact with her parents and siblings. Despite her rocky relationship with them in the past, they've become a strong support system for their daughter as she gets back on her feet following another bout of turmoil.
