Anonymous asked: I sent In a question earlier and I didn't realize I hadn't asked anonymously if you could ease answer it privately that would be really nice

Anonymous asked: #katifaq I have never seen a therapist but considering reaching out... Is it true u need to talk about self harm as if it was in the past? Do therapist know that when we say it's in the past that it's really not? Even though it's not so they won't tell you parents or anyone else? Is it different when your 18?

I haven’t heard that you need to talk about your SH as if it’s in the past.. but if they think you are a danger to yourself or someone else then we are legally bound to protect you. I have heard from some of my clients that they will tell your parents if you are under 18 and they don’t really understand SH. But we are not bound in any way to tell your parents. Once you are 18 we cannot tell anyone without your consent. xoxo 

How to deal with family & their mental health 

What can I do to stop myself from becoming suicidal again? Facebook Friday!! #KatiFAQ

Facebook Friday!

1. Hi kati. I got out of the hospital today after an overdose earlier this week. Im feeling more stable now but I am scared I am going to go back to that place. What are some things I can do to stop myself from getting suicidal? What are things I can do now to stay in a good place?

2. Kati Morton FAQ: Do you think diagnosis is important? I’ve seen a couple of doctors and psychologists about my anxiety issues and eating disorder. The psychologist I was seeing as well as the doctors all said at some point that I have an eating disorder but didn’t specify, and I think its likely that I do have GAD, EDNOS and depression but I’ve never been officially diagnosed with anything. I don’t really understand why and I find it frustrating and invalidating when I try to see someone new and explain what my issues are because I feel that at first they don’t take me seriously

3. #KatiFAQ i hope i’m not late: how am i supposed to figure out who i am? i’m recovering from an ed, i used anorexia to create my identity because i was afraid of living without one. now i’m not using my ed behaviours anymore and i’m starting university in october but i still feel lost. i can’t be confident being myself if i don’t have identity

Journal Topic: (thanks Megan!!) 

Journal topic idea: there’s a song in the musical ‘Rent’ for which the lyrics go “There’s only us, there’s only this, forget regret, or life is yours to miss” I guess it’s just about accepting your reality so that you can enjoy life. A lot of times when I’ve been in a rut, this song has made me realize that hating where I’m at or ruminating on things that are in the past isn’t going to do anything and it’s time to move forward because otherwise I’ll miss out on the good times

Is it possible to have anorexia & not be a perfectionist? Tumblr Tuesday!! #KatiFAQ 

Anonymous asked: #KatiFAQ Is it fair for someone to blame their parents for their ED? I feel like my parents were too controlling of me growing up and maybe even a bit emotionally abusive. I often find myself wanting to relapse when they upset me, as if to get my revenge.

Thanks for your question honey! I will talk about this today :) xoxo

Anonymous asked: #katifaq I recently went to therapy for the first time and my therapist diagnosed me with Mixed Bipolar, anxiety and potential BPD but wants to wait a few more sessions does most therapist's do this or is it in his case

Most do do that honey.. because it gives us more time with you to make sure we are giving you the proper diagnosis for what you are struggling with. I actually prefer to take my time with that as well :) xoxo

Anonymous asked: #KatiFAQ Hi Kati! Does not self-harming mean that you are less troubled by the issues you are having?

Not at all!!! It all depends on how we have learned to cope with what is going on. Everyone is different, and no one way of coping makes us more or less troubled. xoxo Honest!! 

Anonymous asked: #katifaq hi kati hope you are well. I was wondering can DBT be helpful without group therapy? Would you still suggest it even if theres no choice (i mean in groups)

It definitely can honey!! It is best with the group, but if that’s not available you can still benefit a lot from DBT therapy :) There is a lot of homework associated with it, so just make sure you are making time for that as well :) xoxo 

Anonymous asked: Hey Kati thank you for all you doing :) #katifaq can psychoanalytic therapy help a BPD patient?

Great question honey! I will talk about this today :) xoxo
