In response to today’s Daily Prompt:
There have been times in my life when I felt I’d lost everything. I lost my career long ago. My sanity is questionable. I’ve lost friends and family members along the way. For a time, I think I even lost my self. I’ll never forget the joy of discovering her again when I started seeing an excellent Eating Disorders Psychologist. We talked about food and emotions and how I use one to deal with the other, certainly. But the most important thing I took from our sessions was the concept of ‘Allotment Laura.’ She is my self.
Allotment Laura is the Laura you see in these pages. She’s competent, strong and practical. She’s creative and resourceful. She is my treasure.
