Lindsay made a close to an eight-part story arc of post rehab footage, but she’s well on her way to the next chapter in rebuilding her career. I’d like to think i’m looking at this realistically. There are photos, and there are things said on camera. Other than that there are reports. From all of it, there are a few things that can be extracted as evidence.
I think we can all agree that your sobriety is private. No one really knows the number of days sober for any individual.
There were missed filming days. That’s a fact. Along with call times that were not met. We know that camera crew had to wait outside on a number of occasions, but we don’t know exactly what was being done while they waited. There was footage of a game of dare taken at 7:21 am, but we can’t say for sure exactly what was happening in the hours leading up to it. There are also reports about what happened at Coachella, which no doubt is convincing to many, but it’s without photographic or video evidence.
What I think was revealed fully, was the struggle in maintaining a relationship with your parents when they’re divorced. No child wants to take sides. Maybe what she says isn’t always true, but we saw for ourselves the conversations that she had with each parent. No single mother has it easy. Family is an important factor in anyone’s recovery. It’s clear from the footage, that these family relationships are complicated.
Alcohol dependence is scary, but that’s hardly ever really all a patient is afflicted with. We could all benefit from rehab, meditation, and psychotherapy. Ultimately any patient with a disease needs to be able to live in the community, and society has an impact on this adaptation.
