Carrie On

Carrie Fisher has left the galaxy for parts unknown. Rosemary told me she was working on a movie script about my late sister who suffered from mental illness and alcoholism. I wondered if she found holes in Christine’s death scene, and quit the project. Did she want to interview Drew?

Carrie is in our family tree via Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor. A rose colored emergency warning light that kept flashing from deep within the ship of life, has gone out. There was something wrong. There will always be something gone awry. Problem solved. Carry on!

“I never could take alcohol. I always said I was allergic to alcohol, and that’s actually a definition to alcoholism — an allergy of the body and an obsession of the mind,” Fisher told the Herald-Tribune in 2013. “So I didn’t do other kinds of drugs until I was about 20. Then, by the time I was 21 it was LSD. I didn’t love cocaine, but I wanted to feel any way other than the way I did, so I’d do anything.”

In 1985, Fisher was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, and she subsequently became an outspoken advocate for mental health awareness.

Throughout much of the ’90s, Fisher focused on her writing career, publishing Surrender the Pink and Delusions of Grandma. In addition, Fisher helped craft the scripts for numerous Hollywood films, going uncredited, for films like The Wedding Singer, Hook and Sister Act.
