1. katiFAQ is there such thing as turning off your eating disorder for your family, so while your living at home you don’t carry out any ED behaviours? Or does that mean you never had an ED to begin with?? Thanks! xx

2. katifaq Hey Kati! Do therapist ever feel guilty? My therapist tells me to text her whenever Im upset and feel like cutting. So I do. I text her and most of the time she will respond to me quickly and talk me through things. But what about when she doesn’t reply and I go through with my urges to cut? I don’t want her to feel guilty. Do therapist ever feel guilty about stuff like this, or am I just over thinking everything? Have you ever had this happen to you?

3. Hi! This has always been lingering in my mind. Four years ago, I experienced tactile hallucinations that were pretty terrifying. I honestly believed and felt that bugs were living in and crawling around in my skin. I was never treated for it at all – it only lasted for about 2 weeks before I was able to snap out of it, and I’ve never hallucinated since. To this day, I’ve never been diagnosed with anything, but I’ve never forgotten about those 2 weeks either. I guess I’m a bit delusional but nothing that really hinders my life, I think.

My question is: does this make me more prone to hallucinating in the future? Is it possible that what happened back then did have significance after all? I’m just wondering because I never did anything to cause it, I was living a fairly healthy lifestyle at the time.

Thank you!

1.  #KatiFAQ hi kati I’m 18 years old . I was raped for 7 years by my neighbor since age 11 , last session I told my therapist all about it but every time I think about it I regret tilling her then I start cutting ! How can I stop feeling regret and start feeling like she is going to help.

2. #KatiFAQ Hi kati, I am experiencing what I believe to be OCD (will be seeing someone to confirm, however from asking other OCD sufferers and doing research I am very certain it is) and I am worried I may be developing self harm tendencies. This only really started a few days ago but I have started punching walls deliberately with the intent of causing harm to myself. I think this counts as Self harm even though I am not cutting but I am not doing it majorly but I am worried it may be starting a pattern of Self harm, how do I get out of it before it may possibly begin?

3. #katifaq hey Kati, I was wondering why we self sabotage and how to stop! Every time I’m doing well in my ED and SH recovery it’s like a flip switches and I spend days or even weeks undoing all my hard work and starting over is more and more devastating each time. I think it’s partly because I’m scared life won’t be better or I still won’t be happy once I’m recovered so it’s safer to stay sick… But this isn’t what I want! How do I get over it? Please please help! Thanks for everything you do!
