For Lorie DeFisher, getting to her psychiatric appointments every Wednesday was not the worst of her issues.When Lorie's mom passed away, her world stopped. College and marriage were dreams that died with her mother. After Lorie ran out on her dying mom she fled to the farthest city in the state without actually crossing any state borders. It was in this new strange place where Lorie ended up homeless and picked up by local authorities. After speaking with police officials they admitted her in a temporary shelter. Every night, Lorie would talk to herself going over every moment she spent with her mom and cried until the dawn over regrets and memories repeating in her head. Promising her mother she'd marry Jay after graduating were only words she could not accomplish. Lorie couldn't be alone but she needed to be alone.

For what literally would be a free education offering Lorie housing as well, it was attainable, however Lorie was required by the state to attend once a week a "mental analysis" by Dr. Long. Upon successful progression, Lorie would be allowed to live on her own without any supervision or regulations.

Without a mom, friends or anyone to care for her, can Lorie survive mentally, physically..and emotionally? Will Lorie's past ruin her future?

I left my coat in February is an inspirational story about a young woman who used her past to help her fly. View table of contents...

Senior year was to start in just two days.I tired to calm myself. I diverted my desperate gaze from my computer screen to the calendar hanging on my bedroom wall. This month the photo I'd be starring at for the next 30 days would be kittens. 4 kittens fighting over a ball of yarn. Very cute kittens. My ADD kicked in.

"I'm gonna hang myself. Do you have any rope?"

I had two days to get my senior schedule into shape and it was far from being in shape.

"Lorie, it's fine. You can't get out of taking Biology. This is why they suggest taking these kind of classes freshman year, to save youself from a plunging death."
