Following her explosive walk-out during yesterday's (July 27) appearance on "Good Day LA," Kat Von D has bailed on the remaining leg of her "LA Ink" publicity blitz and offered up a super-emotional recap of her life over the last year.

Reflecting on her roller coaster day, the famed tattoo artist took to her Facebook to unveil her angst, writing, "Today felt pretty impossible. Most of the times, regardless of what's going on around me, I'm usually strong enough to not let things get to me like this. But today there seems to be no way of escaping my thoughts."

The 29-year-old continued, "'What have I done?' 'I sure made a mess of things.' 'Wish today was over'…Somehow, I allowed today to get the best of me."

Adding insight to her apparently tumultuous relationship with ex-fiancee Jesse James, Kat revealed, "Lost a lot of friends, and even caused turmoil within some of my family members because of the bulls--t the media put out there...Some fans even changed their perception of who they thought I was."

After pinning most of her current "mess" on the media, Von D eventually took responsibility for storming off the morning show set, "Today was really hard for me. And no one [is] to blame other than myself. As much as I'd like to picture me being this strong, independent woman, the truth is most of the time I'm not as strong as I'd like to be—but I'm still trying," she wrote.

Finally making the decision to cancel all forthcoming promotional plans, she explained, "Tomorrow the new season of LA Ink starts and I admit I'm not strong enough to do all the press I committed to doing for the show. Today was a perfect example of that."
