I think her later years were a manifestation of not only the post-fame downward spiral that happens to many child stars, but also trauma in her early years. Take a look at her sad admission in this video, for the two minutes starting at 6:00.

I hope there was some joy in her life at some point, but it seems she had a tough ride for a large part of it. I'm feeling so sad for her.
