LOS ANGELES, Nov. 4 (UPI) -- Amanda Bynes went on a Twitter rant early Tuesday morning in which she opened up to her fans about her disease and current living conditions.

"I need to get an apartment and my parents won't give me access to any of my funds," she wrote, adding. "I was diagnosed bi - polar and manic depressive so I'm on medication and I'm seeing my psychologist and pyshchiatrist weekly so I'm fine :D"

The 28-year-old actress later revealed she's not moving in with her parents because she's not legally obligated to, but that she is living off of the money they give her, because she is under a conservatorship.

Lastly she wrote, "Thanks GOD."

Bynes' parents corroborated part of the former actress' story and told TMZ they've been giving her $50 to $100 a day for her expenses. According to the gossip site, she has been "roaming West Hollywood, eating out and going to hotels."

Bynes' parents filed for a conservatorship last month after the She's The Man star was placed on a second 5150 psychiatric hold after being accused of shoplifting in NYC and weeks after she was arrested for DUI in Los Angeles.

Bynes' parents said they did not invite their daughter to move in with them again because they're burnt out and believe she needs to hit rock bottom before she can get better.

The actress' recent fall from grace comes almost a year after she was released from a rehabilitation clinic after being formally diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder in September of 2013.
