    Her trigger is probably her "Fame"never any privacy EVER.Paparazzi taking photo's of you as soon as you walk out the door of your home,go out to dinner,vacation,etc they are literally everywhere.For a recovering addict to never be able to escape ANYTHING. OR ANYONE ever is a recipe for disaster.Money changes people,but not necessarily their heart and who they Truly are but if your wealthy you have a completely unique set of problems those of us without money could never understand.Also consider this the injury to her foot very well could have been done purposely to conceal her pill abuse,it may sound crazy but in the mind of an addict suffering with bi-polar disorder this is highly possible.You have a very sincere heart,very genuinely concerned,you care obviously and in today's world that's rare.In a few day's we will learn more im sure.

    I've always liked her and never had any bad vibes from her. She seems sincere as well and I think that's why I care so much. The first time she tried cocaine was when she was 17 while working with Disney. Someone introduced her to it just like Whitney Houston's brother admitted to getting her hooked on drugs. It's a shame and I feel horrible because it always happens to the most talented ones. I saw a video on Youtube and one of the reporters said that she relapsed somewhere around April and May so I do believe my theory is correct. I'm not so sure if she injured herself purposely but like you said, it is a possibility. She's a little over a year younger than me so I feel like a big sister almost

    I appreciate the concern, but unfortunately I am a Canadian who lives in the far north. I’m so far away from civilization that I actually live a 4 hour drive from a single FAST FOOD PLACE. Who knew that was even possible these days?! I think I would extremely benefit from a rehab program, but my ego always stops me from researching it.

    My brain tells me a million excuses not to go, it’s less about the actual research. But I appreciate it, friend!

    @RecoveringLife1 i wouldn't really know what would cause her to relapse... could be so many things. at the very core, many people self-sabotage/destruct b/c of this thought "i am not good enough".

    So yesterday morning, I had an appointment for my mental evaluation but it wasn't with a doctor, it was with a social worker. So I basically waited two months for nothing and I still haven't gotten any treatment. I went to work last night and I will say that being around alcohol, I did have some thoughts of drinking, but I ignored it and remained sober. I'll have to talk to my primary care physician about getting a head doctor at that clinic. I see why so many people relapse because they have to wait so long to get treatment when they try to reach out for mental disorders. My boyfriend and I are going to start working out at a gym next week so that'll be my treatment for now. Also, my primary care physician prescribed me medication for depression and fibromyalgia (in one pill), but I'm experiencing some side effects I can't tolerate so I stopped taking it. I need injections instead of pills and told her my body does not respond well with pills. She won't listen for some odd reason

    I’m sorry, @RecoveringLife1.
    That sucks that you waited so long for something that wasn’t what you wanted. So proud of you for following through though. I hope you find something that helps you!
