Actress Billie Lourd posted an Instagram on the fifth anniversary of her mother Carrie Fisher’s death that displays on her grief course of.

In the caption of a throwback photograph of her and the Star Wars icon posing with a koala, the American Horror Story star writes, “​​I’m in a different stage of grief in each moment of every day. My grief is a multi-course meal with many complicated ingredients. An amuse bouche of bargaining followed by an anger appetizer with a side of depression, acceptance for the entree and of course a little denial for dessert.”

She emphasizes that for anybody grieving, the reply to what stage of grief they’re in “is never simple,” and that “there is no ‘should’ in grief — grief just is whatever it is for you and that is how it ‘should be.'”

Fisher died of a coronary heart assault on Dec. 27, 2016, and her mother (Lourd’s grandmother), actress Debbie Reynolds, died in the future later. 

On her submit, which was printed on Dec. 26 for American viewers, Lourd jokes “for anyone wondering why I’m posting this on the 26th it’s the 27th here down unda (aka Tomorrowland) so what better thing to post for my Momby’s Australian death anniversary (4 words I never thought I’d be putting next to each other?!?) than this picture of her and I with a koala!?”
