Looking at her picture, looks like a correct assumption. Yikes!

No, that’s just her without makeup (and a morning cup of coffee).

Of all the drugs out there I’ll never get why anyone wants to injest pool cleaner cooked by crackheads.

She had a thyroid disorder, looking at those bulging eyes.

Having a brief stint as a minor television “star,” particularly when young, seems to shorten lifespan remarkably for many. Must be tough to keep your head screwed on straight around that crowd.

Pity, she was a beautiful young woman with her whole life ahead of her, and look how it turned out. Remaining in obscurity would have served her far better.

I remember when she was fired from the show because of the problems she was having back then. She’s gone, but Tommy Chong, who also appeared on the show, is still around. Go figure.

Here's a link to the testimony of Kirk Cameron, a child star that survived, and is doing exceptionally well today. His testimony is a good counterweight to the hopelessness that we see in the news, especially when we read about something like what happened to Lisa Robin Kelly:

She had a thyroid disorder, yeah right...... and you know this by reading her medical file?

Looks just like every other meth-whore.

I’m in agreement with RegulatorCountry.

The bulging eyes are a sign/symptom of Graves’ Disease, which is an under-active thyroid.

Most of the meth addict pics I’ve seen show extreme emaciation, loss of teeth, dull skin and hair and more than one skin sore on places other than a lip, which could just be herpes. She doesn’t look to me like a typical long-time meth abuser. I’m unsure if the other stimulants, especially those available by prescription,lead to the same appearance as meth.

It could, of course, be both. Low thyroid could lead someone to self-medicate with some sort of speed and I understand meth, like all the stimulants, is highly addictive.

In any event, two photos taken 20 years apart are difficult to judge. Everyone who doesn’t undergo cosmetic procedures shows signs of aging. The older pic looks a lot like someone in their 40s who isn’t taking care of themselves and was candidly photographed without being professionally groomed.

Comparing the photos was deceiving, I’ll concede that.
