Carrie Fisher was a beautiful soul who fought the stigma of mental health by being open about her struggles with bipolar and addiction. She used her platform to fight for awareness and empower women. She allowed her mental health to inspire instead of repressing it and hiding. Her bravery, humor, and talent changed the world. If you haven't, read her memoir Wishful Drinking, watch her documentary of the same name, and read / watch Postcards from the Edge, in which Carrie fictionalized her experience with addiction. "I am mentally ill. I can say that. I am not ashamed of that. I survived it, I'm still surviving it, but bring it on. Better me than you." ✊️
