Eating disorders are not fabulous. You are the most ignorant community I have ever seen. I mean, ed proud? Really? Your proud to have something that has a 12% chance of killing you? Your completely out of line. That's all I wanted to say. Please ban me, as I don't want to be a part of this community. I would be utterly embarassed to be associated with you people. You don't have eating disorders, you have WANNAREXIA! If you had a real eating disorder, you wouldn't think it was ~fabulous~. So congrats on making yourself look like a bunch of uneducated faggots. Thumbs up!

I agree

Only wannarexics want an eating disorder or are proud of it. People like me who have had it since they are 13 and had it utterly disrupt their life hate it. I hate anorexia. I hate not being able to enjoy food and letting it control what I do. You have to have the right sort of fucked up mind to get a genuine eating disorder to begin with. Mine just happened and I hid it up until last year from everyone but 5 or so people out of shame. Now I am more open because my best friend telling my secret put a huge riff in our relationship and she died a few months later. Thanks to "ana" I didn't get to enjoy the last few months my best friend had.

Oh geee "ana" pride

Re: I agree

Ya, exactly. So maybe you don't belong here. They are proud of their eating disorders. ANAPROUD! What the hell? It's disgusting. It's childish. They're picture in their user info says "more like anor-SEXY-a." You aren't even sticking up for this community. You're simply saying, you have an eating disorder. Than, bottomn line, you don't belong in this community. Neither do I. See, we are the "boo-hooers." And we are NOT proud of having an eating disorder. Fuck this peice of shit community. Read the user info and tell me it doesn't make you wanna punch babies.

Re: I agree

I don't belong here. I felt like poking around these communities today. I have yet to really find an actual anorexic community which would be more of a place to talk aout struggling and recovery or trying to somehow live with it. Yea stuff like this makes me want to punch babies. I ended a friendship with someone who used to be a close friend because she became wannarexic and kept asking me questions about what to do. She would also have to tell me everytime I saw her how long it had been since she last ate, how many situps she had done, etc....Since I was trying to recover or at least stay around 98-100 not dip back down to 87 I couldn't be around a trigger. I just ended our friendship. Growing weird hair, not getting your period for months, turning yellowish, feeling sick all the time isn't glamourous. Not to mention the heart pain and the water logged ankles. Having seizures isn't fun. Being afraid to let a guy touch you because you are afraid they will be grossed out by the ribs in your back isn't fun. It isn't fun to have friends worried all the time over you, but too afraid to say anything especially since you won't admit anything. I mean I'll always be afraid and just sad about food, but I eat now. I mean I'll even have ice cream. It's the worst possible road to go down, and for people like me who never wanted an eating disorder (this sprung up after I stopped my trich) it's an insult to see people to take eating disorders so lightly. I think you are awesome. You're post brought a smile to my face.

Re: I agree

I came here for sketch reasons. IDK.

ed_recovery and ed_ucate are two you should probably check out.

ed_ucate is more educated, EDs are not glamorous, realistic/objective talk about EDs, and ed_recovery is more for people who are recovering, which it looks like you are.
