Well liked Palmer-Tomkinson became famous in the 1990s as a party loving socialite. She began writing items about her weekly partying and it attracted readers.

Based on her words, Palmer-Tomkinson, was of the opinion people deemed her someone without talent, which made her feel like a failure. However, she had talent. Palmer-Tomkinson was a classically trained pianist, which is no small accomplishment. She also had a decent singing voice. She could have recorded music professionally, had she chosen to do so. Today, I saw footage of her singing and dancing and I do think she could have been a pop singer.

 She fell into cocaine use when she fell in love. This is where her problems truly began. Due to the fact he did cocaine, she tried it as well to gain his approval and it kicked off a massive drug habit. This has happened to many men and women. At the end of the day, if someone truly cares about you, they will not give you illegal drugs. Palmer-Tomkinson's drug habit led to a frightening overdose and a stint in rehab that she labeled beneficial, as she stated they helped to wean her off drugs and she met people with similar problems, making her feel less alone.

In 2016, Palmer-Tomkinson was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Her doctor detected a medical abnormality with her pituitary gland, which led to further tests and the diagnosis of a brain tumor. She was also diagnosed with an auto-immune disease. On Tuesday, February 9, 2017, she was found dead in her £4,400,000 flat in London.

Palmer-Tomkinson expressed regret over not becoming a mother and her party girl lifestyle, "Yes. I’d love to lie and say I have no regrets, but I do. I’d like to go back to that young girl and shake her. So much was handed to me on a plate. I never set out to become an It girl, but you get opportunity after opportunity, then a car, a TV programme. It was so exciting, albeit a bit frightening. You have people telling you that you are brilliant — that you wouldn’t be getting all these opportunities if you weren’t brilliant."

There's nothing wrong with enjoying yourself and having a good time. However, when drugs enter the picture and you are engaging in chronic partying, it will rob you of valuable time to do important things in life. Palmer-Tomkinson realized that and made a valiant effort to change course in her latter years. The sooner you make that decision the better.
