Catherine Zeta-Jones is Back In Treatment For Bipolar Disorder

Being a human being is an awesome thing – our bodies autonomously work for nearly a hundred years (if we’re lucky) without being hooked up to any power source or anything. We can walk and talk and have sex and run experiments and write books and all these wonderful things. Humanity is grand! Of course, anything so amazing has its downfall, and that comes in the form of illness of any kind, physical or mental. bipolar II disorder is one of them and it’s a damn shame that Catherine Zeta-Jones is struggling with hers once again.

Catherine entered a treatment facility again yesterday to get things under control. TMZ has the full report:

We’ve learned … the 43-year-old Academy Award winner checked in to the treatment center Monday … and is expected to complete a 30-day program.

Sources connected to the actress tell us … Jones’ stint in the treatment center is a proactive measure. As one source puts it, “It’s maintenance.”

FYI — Jones completed a stint at a treatment center in 2011 — at the time, her rep said Catherine had “made the decision to check in to a mental health facility for a brief stay to treat her Bipolar II disorder.”

I can’t even say anything snarky to this story – mental illness is a lifelong struggle and one that I hope she finds some more peace with during this round of treatment. And at least she’s got a good partner there to support her (I would hope) in Michael Douglas!
