    Default Catherine Zeta-Jones Treated for Bipolar Disorder



    Catherine Zeta Jones

    PBG/Empics Entertainment/Abaca




    Catherine Zeta-Jones, who has been by husband Michael Douglas's side during his cancer fight, has sought mental health treatment for herself, her rep says.

    "After dealing with the stress of the past year, Catherine made the decision to check in to a mental health facility for a brief stay to treat her bipolar II disorder," the rep says in a statement. "She’s feeling great and looking forward to starting work this week on her two upcoming films."

    Zeta-Jones, 41, spent about five days in the unidentified facility, a friend tells PEOPLE.

    "There's no question it's been a stressful year," the friend says. "Catherine has had deal with Michael's illness and that's been hard. She went in for a few days because she's about to start working, and wanted to make sure she's in top form, which she is."

    Douglas, 66, announced in January he was declared free of cancer after what he called a "wild six-month ride" of chemotherapy and radiation for a tumor on his tongue.

    If true, I feel sorry for her and her family. Bi-polar is no fun at all for the kids. But I do think it's kind of funny that this story came out like 10 minutes ago and it's already fallen to the bottom of the page.

    this seems to imply she's been bipolar for a while now?

    Why did her rep feel a need to announce this at all?

    probably because someone saw her at the clinic or got a picture and was about to release it to the press. this has pre-emptive strike written all over it.

    Is 5 days enough time to really iron out a mental health issue? I would think meds or whatever she's doing would need more time to work properly.

    My local news said she's at Silver Hill, which is where my old bi-polar boss would check into periodically.

    But they also treat substance abuse, so there's that possibility.

    If this is true, I'm surprised and hope she gets better soon. A week is not long enough to heal for a real attack of her disease.
    Oh, I offended you with my opinion? You should hear the ones I keep to myself.

    Maybe she needs a vacation from being the caretaker for her kids and sick husband. I know, at some point, I would.

    I never got the impression she did much caretaking of anybody. When he was getting chemo she always seemed to be out of the country at golfing events. She strikes me as somebody who always puts herself first.

    Well! That's a bit of a shocker. Never heard a whisper of that one. Can't it get worse with stress?
