Dawson's Creek writer, Heidi Ferrer, 50, commits suicide after 13-month battle with COVID-19



Screenwriter Heidi Ferrer, who wrote episodes of Dawson’s Creek as well as the 2008 Paris Hilton film The Hottie & the Nottie, has died at the age of 50.



Ferrer died by suicide on May 26 after a 13-month battle with long-haul COVID-19 that left her bedridden and riddled with pain, her husband, Nick Guthe, announced.



The mother-of-one contracted the virus in April 2020 after experiencing body aches, including severe pains in her feet and ankles, fatigue, and flu-like symptoms.



Her symptoms escalated and by June she was bedridden. Over the following months, Ferrer's fatigue and foot pain remained but she also became crippled with neurological tremors.



“The excruciating physical pain and inability to sleep from the pain led Heidi to the decision she would rather leave this world on her own terms before her condition worsened more,” he wrote on her Girl to Mom blog.
