Amanda Bynes has resurfaced on Twitter, and she is sharing something special with her followers!

Having not tweeted since mid-January, Bynes returned to the social media site Monday night to share something special with her fans and followers: a hand-drawn, self-portrait. She posted the pic of her creation, writing, "Hey my loves! Here's a drawing I did! ily :D." The impressive drawing and positive tweet seems to indicate that she is really on her way to getting healthy again!

A source previously told E! News that the What a Girl Wants 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 28-year-old star turned fashion-design student ran into some more 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.

Bynes ultimately revealed she had been diagnosed as bipolar and manic depressive.

"[S]o I'm on medication and I'm seeing my psychologist and psychiatrist weekly so I'm fine :D," she wrote, adding, "I'm not living with my parents. I'm not legally obligated to. My lawyer said if I comply with the courts and take my meds and see my psychologist and psychiatrist weekly then I will get unconserved. Thank GOD."  

Other than making the occasional cameo on Twitter, Bynes has been remaining out of the spotlight, having only recently been spotted at a 99-cent store, where she showed off her still-platinum blond hair and oversized sunglasses.
