From Shayne's mother: In Shayne's case, as with most suicides, there are questions and details that we will never ever know or understand. However, I have come to several realizations - after months of questioning her friends and colleagues, reading her journals, and pouring over her medical records. Shayne never hid the fact that she had struggled with depression since adolescence. She was in and out of treatment for clinical depression, anorexia, and bulimia for many years. What a fighter she was! She was fearless in her attempts to examine her behaviors and to try to get better. What was so special about Shayne was that she was more concerned about other people than she was herself. Her compassion and sensitivity were boundless; yet her own self image was incredibly low. After talking to therapists, we have come to the conclusion that Shayne most likely suffered from Borderline Personality Disorder. It is a rather complicated and controversial diagnosis, but the symptoms are so "her." During the last several years of her life, Shayne's acting took center stage. She craved the "rush" and the fulfillment it gave her. Unfortunately, between acting and a full time job, Shayne had little time to take care of herself. She was tired and run-down, and even though she was on anti-depressants, she struggled with bouts of depression. For whatever reason, Shayne was prescribed medication for Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) in Dec. 2009. Unfortunately Shayne's use of the anti-depressant, the ADD medication, and prescribed sleeping pills was not closely monitored. She rarely, if ever, saw her doctor and began losing weight. She apparently was trying to figure out how to manage all of her medications, and went into a tailspin. After she quit taking the sleeping medication (about 2 weeks before her death), she found it impossible to sleep. A series of other life events (career, work, relationship) caused her to completely give up hope and she intentionally overdosed on all of her medications. Our lives are changed forever, but her family and friends are committed to keeping Shayne's beautiful spirit alive and to promoting awareness of suicide prevention.
