I received an awesome letter in my YouTube inbox. I want to share it with you all….
“Kati, I’m really glad you’ve helped so many people with your videos. I’ve watched a number of them (the ones with captions, at least). I was also interested in another video of yours which fortunately had captions. Btw, my wife and I are deaf. Which brings me off topic to this:We wish the YouTube automatic captions by speech recognition is good enough, but it isn’t. The automatic captions makes sense only 50% (often less) of the time. That’s why it’s important to have someone willing to take the time to manually type the video captions for deaf people like myself.
I realize you’re a busy person, and I’m not asking you to add the captions yourself. But I noticed something interesting… about a year ago, you used to put into the description section of your videos those two lines: Help us caption & translate this video!”…..
It’s Kati here again….
The letter goes on and it really touched my heart. As a community you have shared the videos & some of you have have even translated them. If you have done this in the past, you know it’s a quick and easy process…
Here’s where I need your help:If you have some spare time or are looking for a distraction (hint hint) please visit this page: http://goo.gl/uQsMFcand choose a video. You can then add captions etc that will help not only people who don’t speak english but also the hearing impaired. I REALLY REALLY appreciate any of you who are willing to support this effort. Please let me know if you have any questions.
I receive a lot of questions about self-hatred, self-loathing & self-disgust. I feel that a lot of mental health issues that we deal with are rooted in this. What do we do to end the cycle of self-hatred, negative coping behavior, and more self-hatred?
Disordered Eater vs. Eating Disorder - What’s the difference?
A lot of questions about this! I hope you like the video. :)
Disordered eating is a classification (within DSM-IV-TR, used in the health-care field) to describe a wide range of irregular eating behaviors that do not warrant a diagnosis of a specific eating disorder such as anorexia nervosa or bulimia nervosa. A change in eating patterns can also be caused by other mental disorders (e.g. clinical depression), or by factors that are generally considered to be unrelated to mental disorders (e.g. extreme homesickness, etc).
