“Update: Getting my Bachelor’s degree from [Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising]. Taking online classes, trying to get a 4.0 GPA :] Looking forward to starting my online store in the future #goals,” the 34-year-old former actress wrote on her post.

“Spent the last 2 months in treatment. Worked on coping skills to help with my social anxiety that caused me to drop out of school months ago,” she continued. “Back on track and doing well! I’m now living in transitional living and doing therapy during the week.”

She also informed everyone that she was still engaged to her non-showbiz boyfriend Paul Michael, who she reportedly met at a rehabilitation facility, after the two had briefly called the engagement off in March.

Though Amanda turned off all comments on her Instagram posts, many of her fans took to Twitter to express their support for her.
