Whenever I tell my story, or parts of my story, eyes open and jaws drop. Believe me, I never wanted to be someone with a story to tell. I just wanted to be normal, to blend in, and to be someone people could relate to.
It depends on the audience, but two sets of twins, pregnancy and child loss, a history of eating disorders and addiction, as well as a near death experience, is quite a lot to unload on to another person.
It's as if the Universe has said to me over and over, "I'm not done with you yet, Laura!" Hence, my sober Instagram account name "Laura . . . undone." I am "undone" because I have come to terms with the fact that there's more work for me to do in this beautiful world. Sharing my story is just part of it. I am always asked what I'll do next, but I don't know any more than you do. I remain open, and more and more, willing to tell my story about who I am and where I've been.
Thanks for reading.
