crazy/in love


Age: 21

Gender: Girly

Height: 5'7.5"

Weight: Hmm, let's say 90 lbs

BMI: 13.9 if I'm 90

ED: ? (See below)

Diagnosed/Self-diagnosed?: Professionally diagnosed with Anorexia Nervosa, but I've menstruated a few times lately after over a YEAR of amenorrhea, so technically ED-NOS. I'm bitter about the whole thing. I don't think it's faaaaair that I don't get to be anorexic even though I'm diagnosed and weigh less than I did when I stopped getting my period when meanwhile all these tubby teenagers call themselves "ana" like it's synonymous with shallow.

My biggest pet peeve about ED communities: BIGGEST pet peeve? Dude, that's a tough one. I guess people whining about how "these communities are supposed to be for support" as if that means we should welcome everyone with open arms and forget that we seek pro-ana to find solace among others who share our struggles with mental illness. Also, occasionally people same something really retarded like, "If you were really anorexic you wouldn't be so judgmental," as though the criteria for anorexia are the same as for f-t acceptance. Actually, my biggest pet peeve is how pro-ana and f-t acceptance are becoming synonymous. Adriana Lima is as much a BBW as I've ever seen.

Questions/comments/concerns: None, I'm just happy this community exists. I was considering creating a similar one, but I don't really want to waste that much time trying to educate wanarexics. It's a losing battle, though I admire you guys mucho for trying.
