Philip Seymour Hoffman's Personal Diaries Found By Police & What They Show Add To The Sadness

We may have another insight into the tragic fall of Philip Seymour Hoffman.

During their investigation into his death, police reportedly found two personal diaries belonging to the Magnolia star.

The handwritten books detail Philip's struggle with personal "demons" and include entries alternately about going to drug deals and going to Narcotics Anonymous meetings.

According to sources who have had a chance to look through the diaries, that dichotomy isn't just in the content; the handwriting itself moves from clear to illegible. One source says:

"It seems he did at least part of it in rehab. It definitely contained some soul-searching. But there is also a fair amount of rambling that doesn’t make sense."

Another source elaborates:

"It's stream of consciousness and difficult to follow. In one line he refers to 'Frank who always owes money' and on the same page he writes about a 15-year-old girl from Texas."

We just hope that maybe these newly discovered writings can provide some answers, and maybe Philip's family and friends will get some closure.

    Yeah personal demons. Yeah fighting it every day. Yeah went to AA and was sober 20 plus years. Blah, blah, blah. It's sad because I lost a good friend to cancer not long ago. He tried everything to stay alive. This man who had so much to live for tried everything he could to die.

    "personal demons"! Really? I'm tired of entitled celebrities absolving themselves of any responsibility by attributing their demise or downfall to "personal demons'. Get real please! Own up and say that he was addict that overdosed! Don't glorify it!

    Kills me that people are trying to glorify this man…yes, he was a great actor and probably a decent man, but he overdosed on drugs…he did this to himself. I think this could be a great lesson on drugs and intervention if people would stop with this 'bless his heart' crud. It also kills me how much attention and news play this gets when much more heroic men and women die for risking their lives. Just done thoughts.

    The demons "he is referring to are a mentally ill person and are the subject of great converse, however, I am one to tell say I understand the anguish he was suffering. His overdose had nothing to do with morals! It had everything to do with mental illness which the country needs to make a great effort to improve and treat the mentally ill. We have many according to statistics. He sounded in his diary to have schizophrenia, a brain disorder where the speech and thoughts are distorted and hallucinations can also accompany it along with several or many lapped over mental disorders. Do not be quick to judge. The mind and brain and the chemistry are very delicate and so is the human heart. Judge not and you will not be judged!

    Re: Realitycheck – Yeah moral superiority, yeah blase indifference to the suffering of people you don't know, yeah, assumption that celebrities have no problems and owe you their trouble-free lives. Sorry about your friend with cancer. Now grow up and realize that all people have their own struggles, whether you approve or not.
