Good morning friends. I’m writing today with much concern. I am aware of some serious issues and sadly, I feel my hands are tied. Speaking from my own experience on suffering with an eating disorder and self harm, I understand the severity and the feelings of bondage these coping behaviors have on one’s self. These addictions are progressive and get worse over time. The cries for help people use often go unheard. Especially by parents. As I […]
