    She reminds me of so many kids I know. It hurts to watch her killing herself when she has so much to offer and such a sweet personality. I really hope she managed to stay sober despite going back to Tom…

  2. Barbara

    I found her to be so full of life but lost. I hope she is doing fine and has beaten this. If anyone has any updates on her, please let it be known. I would love to hear how she is doing.

  3. Andy

    Does anyone have any updates on her?

  5. Amy Lugo

    I work in the medical field and yes we have 2 kids but not married yet. I watched an episode of intervention last night and just started poking around.

    My last comment didnt post. Amy I am so glad to hear you are doing well. Your livelypersonality, the relationship you have with your brother, and the cutting, it all reminded me.of myself. When your episode aired I was 14 and that was when I had started cutting myself. Seeing your episode helped me to realize that I wasnt the only.person going through things and using that as a coping mechanism. I am also very close with my brother. I’m so happy to hear you are doing well and I hope the future continues to be good for you.

    I definitely feel like she was one of the most likeable addicts.

    She should be in the most likeable addicts category, Dizzy!

    Oh Amy! She was so very likeable and lovable! This episode was gripping! The scene of her fighting with her bf then going and cutting herself with a knife was harrowing! I cried! Such a intelligent, sweet girl, full of potential! Her brother was so amazing, always there to rescue her! Finding out that she’s doing well all these years later is awesome!! Yay Amy! I hope her brother is doing well too!

    I wish there were more updates on all of the older season participants!! The first few seasons were the best! Would love to know how they all are!! <3
