“Hello and welcome to Carrie’s voice mail. Due to recent electroconvulsive therapy, please pay close attention to the following options. Leave your name, number, and a brief history as to how Carrie knows you, and she’ll get back to you if this jogs what’s left of her memory. Thank you for calling and have a great day.”
Fisher is candid, sarcastic and wonderfully honest – she is open about her illness and this honesty is refreshing and hilarious. She isn’t self-pitying, shit has happened and she is living life best she can.
My friend Louise once taught me that it is healthier to find things funny than dwell over the horrendousness of them – and that is exactly what Fisher does; you either laugh or you cry and Fisher has chosen laughter.
