Part 1

--Age: 24
--Gender: female
--How I found my way here: through friends and a few communities.
--Questions/comments/concerns: I really like this idea, as I've struggled for quite some time moderating an eating disorder community. I have a very low tolerance for glorifying eating disorders. Especially when this disease has nearly killed me, and destroyed my quality of life. For it to be called "Ana" sickens me, as if it's some neat little trend. I'm very vocal and outspoken about my views on my disorder, and also do some writing about it. If anyone is interested, it's linked here.

Part 2
(disordered members only)

--ED: Anorexia Nervosa
--Diagnosed/Self-diagnosed?: Diagnosed as ED-NOS at age twelve, diagnosed anorexic at age 13 due to amenorrhea, both by my primary physician and psychiatrist.

[1a] Is your bmi less than 17.5? I am currently maintaining a 14.2 BMI
[1b] If your bmi is over 17.5, have you been medically diagnosed with anorexia nervosa at your current weight?
[2] Are you terrified of gaining weight or getting fat? I fear weight because I fear being substantial. I believe people will stop protecting me, stop caring. It's not so much that I think I'm fat (believe me, I'm so aware that I'm not fat as my assbones bite in as I sit), but weight equals no longer being fragile,
[3] Does your weight/size/shape influence how you feel about yourself? Every day. A million times a day. Good, bad, half-dead....
[4] Have you lost your period for at least three months? I can safely say my period, Jimmy Hoffa and Paris Hilton's virginity are probably all hanging out together.
[5a] Restricting types only: While you have been anorexic, have you restricted without episodes of binging? I don't "binge". I have always, since my earliest childhood memory, have hated the feeling of being full.
[5b] Binging/Purging types only: While you have been anorexic, have you had recurring episodes where you have binged or purged?
