I just saw on FB that Carrie Fisher has passed away, following a massive heart attack a few days ago.

R.I.P. Princess Leila... :(

Wow, the last I heard I thought she was stable, but I guess not.

RIP.

It's a sad reminder that, for various reasons, the life expectancy of people with severe bipolar disorder is not particularly high. Still, it came as a shock to me too.

Everyone always thinks "Princess Leia", a role she played in her twenties, but she also gained some note for her writing and screenwriting in later decades, which I think shouldn't be forgotten.

I was thinking that, with several of these celebrity deaths, there was a definite history of drug and alcohol abuse. I find that very sad that, so often, the "price" of genius is this compulsion to numb with drugs and alcohol. :(

I literally could not believe this. I could not.

My heart aches for their family and circle of friends.
