About this Item: 1998. Condition: Good+. On offer is an incredible archive of seven [7] diaries and scrapbooks along with related ephemera detailing the fall and rise of one young woman's life issues involving an ever increasing drug and alcohol addiction, her sexual obsession and addiction and her desperate attempts to improve her life and put her addictions behind her. The scrapbooks are all encompassing: Correspondence, Love Letters, Printed Emails, Poems, Hate Letters, Christmas Cards, Birthday Cards, Photographs, Small Written Notes, & Musings to and from her friends, family and enablers. In her words: "I was a young woman lost and struggling with the mundaneness of life. My Father died suddenly when I was 21 years old and I was left to find my own way in the world. I battled constantly with alcoholism, marijuana addiction, and sadly a very low sense of self-worth. I suffered from chronic Clinical Depression and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder which went unnoticed and undiagnosed because I became a master at hiding behind my smile, and behind the smoke screen I created which I called 'my life'. This journal exposes thoughts and actions I cringe about when I read today. Sometimes I find it difficult to believe 'I' was that person as it feels a lifetime away from who I am now. This is the reason I have decided to let go of these journals after all these years. I'm happy with who I am today. My life is simple and beautiful, and I don't feel I need any reminders of where I have come from, or the battles I have endured and overcome to get where I am in life." Collectors and researchers will find a very broad but deep look into this woman's life as she offers an inordinately intimate look at the spiral down and upward climb through her addiction experience. We withhold he name and location for privacy concerns. Overall G+. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Seller Inventory # 0001451
