Wednesday’s Quote: Carrie Fisher

“One of the things that baffles me (and there are quite a few) is how there can be so much lingering stigma with regards to mental illness, specifically bipolar disorder. In my opinion, living with manic depression takes a tremendous amount of balls. Not unlike a tour of Afghanistan (though the bombs and bullets, in this case, come from the inside). At times, being bipolar can be an all-consuming challenge, requiring a lot of stamina and even more courage, so if you’re living with this illness and functioning at all, it’s something to be proud of, not ashamed of. They should issue medals along with the steady stream of medication.

    “They should issue medals along with the steady stream of medication”. Bradley, I hope she got many… really a sour day

      It has been sour, but I believe her death has become my calling to enjoy life to the
      fullest.

        Bradley, I want you to know before it becomes official sometime on my blog, that you are considered part of my soul family and this for reasons so close to my soul. Thank you earnestly, keep doing your thing, keep being you, fight the trumpmare as much as you can, and live cum love life to your fullest. If someday you learn of my own death, remember this above all… This ain’t sparked by Carrie’s death, maybe it’s a catalyst sort off

      Carrie is one of my favories. I have a video of her being interviewed and it’s hysterical. it’s somewhere here on my blog, but I can’t remember what dates. I’m sure I’ll post it again.
