Katy likes to write blogs to help herself and to also help others. We are starting to publish Katy’s blogs here and elsewhere and Katy publishes some on her own Facebook blog page.

We are thankful to Katy for her contribution and for being an inspiration to others. Below is her latest blog entry:

Katy’s Blog


Over the past few weeks I have been doing a lot of self-care and having me time.
A few weeks ago, I had my bloods done and I got the results. They were not good. I have low iron, B12 and Folic Acid. These are three main ones that help your oxygen in the blood. I was scared by this, and I told myself I will not let this eating disorder take over again. This ED has put my body through so much.

I have added more foods to my ‘safe foods’ list. I am going to start having more foods with iron in them too. I still get some ED thoughts, but I do my affirmations, and it slowly calms me down. I also take my dog out for a walk and see Leighah for my counselling every two weeks and have clinical support emails with Hannah at Physis every two weeks.

I have a 5-year hope, intention and goal to be free of the struggles of this ED, and I am determined to do it!
