It’s in the open that the Los Angeles County Medical Examiners Office has authoritatively discovered that “sleep apnea and other undetermined elements” prompted the demise of Carrie Fisher.
On December 27th, 2016 Fisher died in the wake of a gigantic heart attack on a flight from London to Los Angeles. Fisher was only 60 years of age and news of her death stunned the world. Her mom, Debbie Reynolds, died three days later after a serious stroke at 84 years. They were buried together at Forrest Lawn Memorial Park in Los Angeles.
ABC News reports that the coroner’s office recorded sleep apnea as the reason for death along with atherosclerotic coronary illness, which is a solidifying of the arteries in addition to drug usage.
The report likewise stated that the “manner of death has been ruled undetermined,” with the full post-mortem examination report set to be discharged on Monday. The previously mentioned factors might not have been the immediate reason for Fisher’s death and the statement did not point out which medications were in her system at the time. However, drug usage is generally known to make the side effects of sleep apnea more awful.
Billie Lourd, Fisher’s daughter, issued an announcement that is both emotional and straight to the point, highlighting her late mother’s open genuineness about drug abuse and dysfunctional behaviour. This is what Lourd’s said;
“My mom battled drug addiction and mental illness her entire life. She ultimately died from it. She was purposefully open in all of her work about the social stigmas surrounding these diseases.”
Lourd keeps on talking about her mom’s battles and she looked for others to be open about their own battles too. She clarifies.
“She talked about the shame that torments people and their families confronted by these diseases. I know my Mom, she’d want her death to encourage people to be open about their struggles. Seek help, fight for government funding for mental health programs. Shame and those social stigmas are the enemies of progress to solutions and ultimately a cure. Love you Momby.”
Fisher’s openness about her battles was viewed as progressive and she helped many individuals comprehend that it was alright if there brain chemistry was a tiny bit off.
After her untimely demise many took to social networking conceding that they had never at any point heard the term bipolar until Fisher begun to openly discuss her own battles. Fisher disclosed to Vanity Fair in 2009;
“If you claim something, you can own it, but if you have it as a shameful secret, you’re f$#%^&”
Her straightforwardness and openness was invigorating and helped many to seek help for themselves or friends and family.
Fisher was more than Princess Leia in Star Wars for many. Despite the fact that she wasn’t the first artist to transform her own strife into art, she was one of the primary female performing artists to straightforwardly admit it in a genuine, funny manner.
Fisher vanquished her demons by acceptance. After she had acknowledged those demons, she shared them freely. She became the ray of hope for individuals who battled and still battle with mental sickness. Carrie Fisher will be seen next in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which will be her final film role.
