Bynes is reportedly not investing her time or energy into hobbies that used to keep her positively occupied, such as fashion design and being a nail technician. Those close to her said she has been losing interest in tasks easily, but hope she will resume her passions in the future, according to TMZ.
The former star has been responsibly attending her outpatient treatments, and has been addressing her mental health issues by seeing therapists. She has also been staying on schedule with her medications, according to TMZ.
She is spending much of her time alone and those closest to Bynes are reportedly doing their best to ensure she isn’t reunited with her ex, Paul Michael, as the dynamic between them has historically set her on the wrong path, and has proven to be toxic to her recovery, according to TMZ.
