Successfully fighting her sisteras protective attempts to be named her legal guardian, Linda was able to refuse treatment and eventually procured an early, unconditional discharge. Upon her release, she wandered ten miles down the road from the hospital; broke into an abandoned farmhouse and for he next four months lived off of rainwater and apples, through one of the coldest winters on record. Unable to leave the house, she became its prisoner, and remained there, a prisoner of her own mind, eventually starving to death. Her body was discovered several months later and with it a diary that Linda kept documenting her journey. The diary is poignant, beautiful, funny, spiritual, and deeply disturbing. It is one of the only known instances of someone documenting their own starvation.
