Elizabeth Wurtzel

“I need to start thinking more like an engineer and less like a scientist: I need to think about what works, not about why.

The problem was me. I was it.

That's what I believed. I believed I was the everything.

The largeness of my disaster dragged others- frankly, everyone- down with me. I was certain that entire rooms of people became vertiginously joyous when I was high and having fun, and that anyone who got near me when I was morose and coming down would have to feel my pain as potently as I did. Whether I was high or low, the intensity was so great and the world became so small- no larger than the size of me and my mood of the moment- that it was hard to imagine that anything else was going on. It was hard to believe that there were things happening in the world that were not about me.”
