Anonymous asked: Hi beautiful lady, what is the difference between Body Dysmorphic Disorder and an Eating Disorder? Thank you!
Great question!! BDD doesn’t have a food component.. you just don’t like how you look and no matter what happens you still think that way. You don’t focus on food.. I hope that is clear and makes sense :) xoxo

Hey!! No one has ever asked!! I am not a huge fan of diamonds because you never know where they come from.. or who may have died for it etc.. my engagement ring is a spinel :) It is a colored gem. Very rare and very strong.. and not from a conflict area :) xoxo
Anonymous asked: why do self harmers miss there scars or cuts?
It is my belief that we miss them because it is a reminder of the pain that we have felt emotionally.. and it can calm us sometimes to just see it and know that the pain is there.
Anonymous asked: Have u ever met/diagnosed someone with cyclothimia , also do u find menta illness hard to diagnose?
Yes I have.. and I find that many people who think they are bipolar fall into that category. It can be very hard to diagnose because we only see you for an hour a week and only know what you tell us:) So sometimes, we will only see you when you are feeling a certain way, and never know that half of the time you are feeling and acting a completely different way.. I hope that makes sense <3

Anonymous asked: Hey Kati! I know that purging can harm your teeth, but what about restricting? My teeth have been really sore, and I have anorexia restrictive subtype.
Anorexia can lead to bone density loss and it is bones that hold in our teeth (via our jaw bone) and that can lead to teeth loss as well. I have had client who got pain before their teeth got loose, so I would make an appt to see your dentist asap.. so that we can make sure that everything is okay :) xoxo
