Get well Jenn! It happens to the best of us. Fill the void with love as best you can. That's what my experience has taught me. Create reasons (kids, friends or pets) to stay healthy. My dog is a reason I am still here.

I checked out the Wikipedia article on her, and all it mentions is a marijuana possession charge decades ago, but it does mention depression.



I hope she has the support to get through this.

Damn, just when you think somebody turned their life around, then they muck it up again. Drugs and alcohol hurt most of her career and now she wants to go back to it. What a shame!

Get well... she had a lot of pressure and expectations put on her tennis career when she was so young. She had drug issues dropped out of tennis for while then returned. I suppose its a fine line of pushing like the Williams sister, or pushing where a person breaks like she did when she was a teen. Good luck...
