Days before Catherine Zeta-Jones checked into a mental clinic to be treated for a bipolar disorder, the actress flew to Wales to see her parents, Patricia and David, according to the Daily Mail. After staying with her mother and father for a few days, the trio flew back to New York where they're "looking after the children and maintaining some sense of normality," a source revealed.
Catherine spent five days in Silver Hill Hospital in Connecticut, which sits on a lush 45-acre green countryside. After being treated at the exclusive clinic, she is said to be home with Michael, 66, and their children Dylan, 10, and Carys, 7. It's unknown if her parents are still in NYC.
"Extra" Lifechanger Dr. Drew Pinsky says Catherine Zeta-Jones is taking the right steps to get better, after she revealed her struggle with bipolar II disorder. The doc shared his thoughts on her illness and explained, "Certainly stress played a role in this. Catherine Zeta-Jones is a very strong person."
The actress faced a difficult year as she took care of husband Michael Douglas, who battled and overcame throat cancer. The couple also experienced a scary public scuffle with paparazzi in London, with Jones claiming a photographer had punched her. Dr. Drew reveals people with bipolar disorder can become disturbed and stressed quite easily. "They have delicate chemistry. That can tip them off the scale."
