Agreed...it is very sad :/junebug17|1311445453|2975342 said:I know she was in bad shape physically and mentally, but I was still shocked and saddened to see this. I'm not going to pass judgement - she seemed to me to be a very ill person. A very tragic ending to a sad life. I'm sorry she couldn't win the battle against the problems that plagued her.
Ditto...so sad. She was very talented and so young.junebug17|1311445453|2975342 said:I know she was in bad shape physically and mentally, but I was still shocked and saddened to see this.

Definitely, she was a very talented young woman and it's a shame that so many people in this world suffer from the same issues that she did and half the time they end up in the same situation. Not just musicians like her, but so many people around the world go through the same thing she did and until something like this happens some of us don't grasp the severity of drug addictions, and just how bad things can get when proper attention isn't given to the problem.jstarfireb|1311477377|2975602 said:The fact that it was predictable doesn't make it any less tragic, though.

I think those types at least have the belief that getting therapy or going on meds would be detrimental to their creativity. My daughter is an artist with ADHD and she admits that she knows being able to focus via meds would help her, she refuses because she's afraid she'll lose the creative edge that those racing thoughts (and physicality) bring to her. I don't know if it's true, but it's something people assume for sure.kenny|1311532779|2975837 said:This is a big topic.
I've heard many creative folk lose their edge when they finally get therapy or get on medication.
No - the autopsy was inconclusive and they are awaiting additional reports (assume toxicology reports). Her dad said she was off drugs for 3 years, but her mom said she had been drinking a lot.Dreamer_D|1311816613|2978488 said:Have they reported the cause of death?
