She wasn't a drug addict but she was addicted to drugs. Let me explain: she wasn't a real junkie (maybe a bit of a junkie as others suggested) but she was massively addicted to attention (severe narcissistic personality disorder). The way she found and settled for narcissistic supply (attention) was to fake illnesses, go to hospitals and then post stories, tall tales and pictures on social media - without any regard for any semblance of logic, credibility, self-awareness, shame or respect for the people who were really suffering from real illnesses in her support groups.she was not a drug addic
This is nothing new, this is what has been documented from day 1 and why this thread was opened to begin with. Her need for attention evolved into an indirect need for drugs (medical, not recreational), which she must've been taken a dozen types of at any given point as she convinced each doctor to give her something, at least. She created an entire personality and persona out of that, it became entirely who she was.
At some point, though, the castle started crumbling. People started catching up to her lies, exposing her on social media. It must have been a real shock for her ego because her thirst for attention was as big as her hunger for fatty cakes IRL. Even her thread here care to a halt as she withdrew into oblivion. My guess is that her mental health (already not stable at all) started declining and at some point some mild thing caused her to suicide - you just know she had enough drugs to do it if she wanted to, even if they're not "normal OD" drugs like cocaine or heroin. Taking a whole bottle of pills at once (even aspirin!) can be fatal - imagine this whale takes ALL THE BOTTLES she has! So that's my guess: both OD and suicide, no need to fight over one or the other.
As other pointed out here, her obituary is very telling. If this was an accidental OD on medical drugs, we'd have read all about it in the news: family fights for justice after chronically ill landwhale is killed by big pharma. There was nothing of the sort, she suicided and everyone just wanted it to be over as soon as possible, as quiet as possible.
