Fall to Pieces: A Memoir of Drugs, Rock 'n' Roll, and Mental Illness
Mary Forsberg Weiland
Fall to Pieces is a beautifully written, visceral, curler coaster experience inside of bipolar disease, rock ’n’ roll, celebrity tradition, and the area of modeling. Mary Forsberg Weiland, ex-wife of the overdue Scott Weiland, entrance guy for Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver, tells a harrowing actual tale of depression, drug habit, and psychological disease with candor and, frequently, humor. Co-written with veteran journalist Larkin Warren, Fall to Pieces is a blistering, eye-opening memoir of Hollywood meltdown within the bestselling vein of Tatum O’Neal’s A Paper Life and Valerie Bertinelli’s Losing It.

SYDNEY, 5-5-98, 11:34 P.M. I’m going domestic in 3 days. i didn't paintings good right here in any respect. I couldn’t work out why the woman round the corner was once operating quite a bit after which i discovered out she’s slumbering with photographers. If that’s how it is going, I’m chuffed to not paintings. I’ve been a bit unhappy this week and I’ve attempted to make myself suppose greater with foodstuff. It used to be operating until eventually.

Even i'll see that my purely actual factor was once my lack of ability to split myself from Scott. very well, I’d do what i may to kick the opposite medicinal drugs (maybe, sorta, kinda), yet Scott was once my major one, he labored nice, and that i wasn’t giving him up. and that i wasn’t copping to being mentally ailing and not using a struggle. rigorously, the general practitioner attempted back to give an explanation for what he believed used to be happening with me.
