(Newser) – Catherine Zeta-Jones has for the second time entered a treatment center for her bipolar disorder, TMZ reports. Zeta-Jones checked in yesterday and is doing a 30-day program; her rep tells Radar she's just being "proactive" and "is committed to periodic care in order to manage her health in an optimum manner." As another source puts it, "It's maintenance." Yet another source tells People there's no "big problem," Zeta-Jones just wants doctors to monitor her medication and chose to do it now because she's "between projects." She previously stayed at a mental health facility in 2011, when the disorder was first revealed.

My ex-gf is bi-polar. Beautiful woman; tough to live with. Takes a special type of person to have a relationship with someone who is bi-polar, because you assume a significant role in keeping them balanced. She could be the sweetest woman in the world, or the worst witch you ever knew.

I love how open she (and Demi Lovato) are about their bipolar disorder. It's nothing to be ashamed of -- it's just something to deal with.
