Hi everyone! My name is Kate and I'm an 18 year old college student I began struggling with EDNOS around the age of 15 and officially began recovery about a year ago. I struggled with minor depression, bulimia, and self-harm during the recovery process but have come an extremely long way and learned a lot about myself in the process. One thing that really helped me when I was at one of the darkest points in my recovery was discovering beautiful, inspiration girls on websites like this that showed me despite the struggles we can all learn to love ourselves. I have decided to start my own blog in the hopes that I can be that same voice of understanding for people that are in the position I was just months ago. Trust me, there is beauty and happiness on the other side! Please take a moment to check out my blog,, and let me know what you think! If you like it, share it with a friend. I am not doing this for publicity. I'm doing this because support from others saved my life. If I can return the favor by helping even one girl feel better about herself, I will feel fulfilled. Thank you! and stay strong beauties!
Kate, I love that you are
Kate, I love that you are doing this. I think this will not only help others, but also help yourself to remind you of all that you have overcome. So proud of you and that you are spreading your happiness and success story. Great wishes to you!
Thank you Kate!

Wow Kate, your blog is so inspirational. I admire your courage to reach out and share your own story in order to help others.

As I have learned while taking the journey of recovery in order to find myself again, I have noticed that I am actually a people person. I love being around people because, being a psychology major, I cannot help but notice the interesting patterns of social interactions; and, as my therapist told me, I am learning through experience to be an inspiration to others. I have found passion in helping others, and therefore, I have chosen to volunteer more often, which has kept me busy and distracted from eating disorder behaviors, but has also given me a purpose as I slowly learn to grow from my recovery.

My future goal is to be a Counselor for those who suffer from eating disorders; I want to share the insight that I have gained my own personal experience in order to guide others, and I hope one day to write a book on my story. So, good for you Kate for speaking up and being so brave. :)

Kate, you are a rockstar. And

Kate, you are a rockstar. And, I couldn't agree more: PB is (SOOO) much better than ED.
