Comedian Kate Quigley is speaking on surviving a suspected accidental group fentanyl overdose that killed three people.
Quigley, 39, revealed on Saturday night that she had been released from the hospital and “finally had the time & clarity to put my feelings on paper.”
“Thank you to everyone who reached out to me over the past week,” she shared via Twitter.
“I feel overwhelmed by the outpouring of kind messages and am incredibly grateful to be surrounded by a strong community of friends, family, colleagues, and fans who have offered their support during this time; and to the team of paramedics, nurses, and doctors who saved my life,” Quigley began.
“I am still shocked & devastated by the loss of my friends Fu, Rico, and Natalie. Words cannot describe the pain I am feeling & I will be changed forever by their passings. Fu was a generous, loving soul. He was hilarious, supportive, and incredibly authentic with the most infectious spirit.”
Quigley continued on, honoring her friends.
“Rico was always filled with enthusiasm & Natalie was so kind and endearing. They each made an indelible mark on my life and the lives of their loved ones. I will miss them. My heart goes out to their friends and family, and I ask that you keep them in your thoughts.
“There are so many more things i want to say, but I’m not ready. When I am, I will. Until then, all i can say is: Tell your people that you love them every day. Stay safe. And please don’t take this life for granted. I did, and I never will again.”
According to Los Angeles Police Department spokesperson Officer Mike Lopez, there “was no indication of foul play” in the incident involving the four friends.
And on the 12th, Quigley gave an update on how she was feeling after Adam DiFlaminies tweeted out at Quigley, asking how she was feeling.
“I am better every day.” Quigley replied. “i’m sore. I wish i was at SoFi!!! I was going to break from social, but honestly I’m in a great mood today. I’m so excited about the @RamsNFL kickoff game & I’ve decided that life must go on. No use in not living when I am lucky enough to be alive!!”
Many were quick to offer love and support to the star after the update to Instagram, with one user commenting: “The sun comes up regardless of our sorrows. Good post Kate. Positive vibes your way.”
While another said: “I’m so happy you’re doing better I prayed for you and my prayers was answered. Keep doing your thing.”
Followed by: “Your amazing and I’m happy for you.. life is precious and so are you… keep healing I love you.”
