Recovery and Disability

Friday, Dec. 1, 2:30-3 pm PST on KPFA

Laurie joins us to talk about how living with diabetes, the Epstein-Barr virus, fibromyalgia and other physical problems has been improved by her long-time participation in 12-step anonymous recovery programs.

“I used to say: Food Was Just My Butter’s Delivery Service,” Laurie says as she talks to Shelley about her acceptance of herself as a food addict and her slow recovery of her self-worth through the 12 steps.

“We’re looking at trying to find ourselves acceptable, trying to find ourselves worthy of love, trying to find ourselves able to love someone else — trying to find ourselves,” she says.

Tune in for 30 minutes of meditative wisdom from the Recovery Community.
