She was more than a rebel princess.

I’ve been struggling with what to say about the passing of Carrie Fisher. This particular celebrity death has hurt me more than any other, not just because I am a major fan of her work, but because in some ways, she helped me with my own mental issues. 

I see people’s memorial posts on social media and it’s always of her as  young Princess Leia. That hurts my heart. She was so much more than that. A author, and most important to me, an advocate for mental health. She helped me feel ok with what’s going on in my head and for that, I am most thankful. 

I hope you’re resting well with your mother up there and someone please take good care of Gary.
