Symbiotic relationship with mother [08 Oct 2009|10:38pm]
babydrage
Any of you guys know how to deal with a symbiotic relationship with one's mom? Like the girl in Prozac Nation. The mom is involved (mentally) in everything she does.
Seperation... yes, not just phyisically but also mentally.
But how to do that?
Any thoughts?

Does anyone know how I can contact Elizabeth Wurtzel? I wanted to ask her a few questions about writing, so I can get going on my memoir without worry or concern. I am working through reading her first book, and also slogging through 'Bitch', the book she wrote while wired on Coke and Ritalin. I am still a big fan of hers, her memoir 'More, Now, Again' being my favorite book.
'Prozac Nation' is bringing up some memories so I try to write them down when they come up.

Hi, I am a writer and photographer. I enjoy the work of Elizabeth and have just bought Bitch which looks brilliant!

The community seems kind of quiet, anyone got any news on anything new on Elizabeth??

In the book "more, now, again" Elizabeth Wurtzel writes about a Bruce Springsteen song, about him and a girl who tries to kill herself.
Does anyone know what song that is?

Hello Again! [07 May 2008|08:43am]

Hi everyone, I'm just re-introducing myself. Long time member and commenter, but not very frequent poster. Sorry! Anyway, my name's Elizabeth, and I've been a member of this community for years now, you know, back when Ms. Wurtzel was a coke and Ritalin addicted author and not an attorney. :)

In any case, I'm mostly reintroducing myself because I'm running for LJ Advisory Board election and I need votes, so I'm posting to communities I've been an active member of in hopes of rallying support. You see, I'm a writer myself (I am the current writer on the comic http://www.raincannon.com, I'm a journalist for my university newspaper -- or was, as I've now graduated) and I'm running on a platform of LJ non-interference, so that if we want to post some of Ms. Wurtzel's more risque Bitch-era photos or write commentary about her work, we can do so without fear of being censored or shut down, as LiveJournal has been doing.

My full platform is available on my election page

All you have to do is go to my election page and comment with "I support this nomination" and that's that.

Oh, and hi again, everybody! :D

Hey there, I've been a big fan of Elizabeth Wurtzel when I first read "The Bitch Rules" - which I have read over and over and practically memorised.

However, imagine my distress when I came across a book called "Be Your Own Life Coach" by Fiona Harrold - in the chapter "How attractive are you" there are paragraphs practically word-for-word identical to the "Be gorgeous" chapter in "The Bitch Rules".

As far as I can tell they were both published in the same year - anyone know if she is the same person or whether one of them copyed the other?  I can provide ISBN numbers if you need them (I'm at work right now and dont have the books on me).

Cheers!

so why the hell does she not have a website. she might be the coolest girl ever and she doesnt even have a website. yet her mystery does make her more interesting.

off topic - but only slightly [26 Jul 2006|02:07pm]

thisvandalism
note:(sorry if this post doesn't seem appropriate, please read, if it is inappropriate please accept my apologies and delete this post)

the echo survives the voice is a book i wrote of prose on various subjects, mostly relating to self harm, anorexia, borderline personaility disorder, severe depression and all of the mess that comes with such problems - hospitals, medication, etc. basically this is my life on page for someone to pick up, and hopefully be able to connect with and feel better about. it is also about grieving, loss, cancer, family, growing up, love, relationships, moving on and so much more.

if you'd like to read some of my writing before looking at the book, it is located here. a portion of the proceeds made from this book will be donated to the canadian cancer society in my mother's name.

Hey, new. [21 Jul 2006|11:14pm]

Hey guys, I'm new.

I loved Prozac Nation (both the book and the movie -- I absolutely loved Christina Ricci as Elizabeth). I couldn't sit through the entire movie at once, though. It struck a nerve. It was like watching myself. I'm sure anyone else who's been down that road before probably feels the same.
I'm getting More, Now, Again next week, and I couldn't be more excited! Her writing is just so... enticing.

Anyways, I use my LJ to vent, and basically tell my story one entry at a time in a way that hopefully makes others think. If you want to add me feel free, I love new friends! I'm a livejournal loner, for now... haha.

more now again [18 Jun 2006|10:10pm]

i should really go back to my bed and look at the cover, because i tend to be inaccurate when it comes to this book's title... but 5 feet is just way too far and it doesn't really matter, you know what i'm talking about.

this book is very dangerous for me to be reading. i've abstained for about 9 months from so much that created my heaven and my hell... lexapro being the replacement... but i'm honestly tracking down a prescription for ritalin tomorrow... because i've come to the conclusion that elizabeth wurtzel and i are the exact same person... and where she goes, i will blindly follow.

and jebus knows where this will take me.
