My name is Katie. I was born, raised and still residing in southern California. I have struggled with anorexia and bulimia for over 20 years. Over the years, Ive been in and out of different centers and therapy offices. To put it simply, it has been hard. I still struggle greatly, but I can finally and HONESTLY say i AM truly in recovery… and this time I am in recovery for myself, and not other people. It makes a huge difference. I use art and writing as my main coping mechanism. I am thrilled to finally have the courage and vulnerability to share some of it with you. There is nothing Id rather do more than spread awareness and help with others who struggle as I have.
