Learning how to “sur-thrive”

Sur-thrive. That’s the word Carrie Fisher used in a latest interview with the New York Times (It’s an interview with Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds together). I just found that word so fitting to what I’m trying to do. It’s like I don’t want to just survive if I’m going to live a life, but at this point in time, I’m trying to survive to thrive—thus, ‘sur-thrive.’

Here’s a small excerpt from the interview that I found pretty funny:

Q. Just to clarify, do you suffer from manic depression or bipolar disorder?

FISHER They say bipolar now. It’s the same as manic depression. I think manic depression is more descriptive. Bipolar sounds like a gay bear.

  1. I’m bipolar and I agree with Carrie Fisher. LOL I love her. At this point they’ve got us trained to say bipolar. By-the-way. I’m a new reader I’m glad I found your blog.

  2. Hi, this is Tom’s friend Lily…I was wondering if you received the email message I sent to you at “yumers@live.com” last week? It occurred to me that that might be an address that you don’t check regularly, which might explain the lack of a response…though I CC’d Tom on the message, and he didn’t write back either (but he’s just awful about written correspondence anyway)…so yeah, just double-checking to see what’s up. I hope you’re doing OK and to hear back from you soon.

  3. Tamara, did you get to see ‘Wishful Drinking’ on HBO this past weekend?

    Thanks for finding the site!
