Los Angeles: Actress Amanda Bynes, who is suffering from bipolar disorder, has returned to the micro-blogging site Twitter after remaining inactive for the last two months.
Bynes, 28, returned on Monday night to share a hand-drawn, self-portrait, reported E! Online. She posted the picture of her creation, writing, "Hey my loves! Here's a drawing I did!."
A source previously said the actress is "doing really great and is really healthy" after a judge decided to extend Bynes' temporary conservatorship. "She is focusing on reading, yoga and reconnecting with her family. She is trying to live a more balanced life," the source added.
For now, Bynes' mother, Lynne, remains the actress' conservator pending a June 23 hearing that will decide whether or not the arrangement will become permanent. The star ran into legal troubles last fall when she was arrested for an alleged DUI.
Although the Los Angeles City Attorney's Office dropped the case, she entered a local psychiatric hospital until her release in November. "What a Girl Wants" actress ultimately revealed she had been diagnosed as bipolar and manic depressive.
Other than making the occasional cameo on Twitter, Bynes has stayed away from the spotlight.
