You Deserve Nice Things
When I was going my eating disorder, I would not buy things for myself.
I just couldn’t.
I felt that I didn’t deserve it.
I felt that I should save my money for something.
I had an amazing Psychiatrist who saw me as a woman, not as someone with an eating disorder.
He challenged me; he really did.
He was an answer to prayer, he really was.
I had been discharged from hospital from another Psychiatrist.
I went to my GP and she said to me whoever calls back you will just have to go with them.
I remember walking over to the local shopping centre and praying for this Doctor.
When I came back my doctor said that Dr___________ had called and I had an appointment the next day at 9.00 am.
Now I need to let you know that this Doctor was not taking over any new patients and his books where closed.
I had an appointment with him the next day at 9.00 am.
What I liked about him was that he saw me as me, not a woman with an eating disorder.
He valued me and invested in me.
One of the things that he said to me was-
I wanted to buy some shoes and I didn’t, he said to me you need to buy the shoes this is your prescription.
How amazing was he and his words?
He gave me the permission that I couldn’t give myself.
He invested in me and challenged me.
I am so grateful for this Doctor who made such a difference in my life.
He was such an important person in my recovery.
Beautiful one you deserve nice thing, you really do.
What are you going to buy for yourself this week?
I would love to hear from you.
Let’s encourage one another.
