Something I have been thinking about...

I know that I personally do not feel that my being bulimic is good enough, and I am currently struggling, as sick as it is, to have the coveted title of "anorexic" (oh the holiness) as stupid as i know it is, i cannot stop..my point here is, I do not think that the severity of any other type of eating disorder should be undermined, just as I don't really think that if YOU are bulimic you are not as good as the anorexic over there BUT that being said, why are so many of us happy (??) about the changing of the diagnostic criteria in 2010? is it so that more of us can be called (legitimately) anorexic, knowing we fit all of the criteria now?
Any thoughts?

We need more participation!

Greetings, all.

We have 800+ members in this wonderful community. So why does it seem like only 20 or 30 of them consistently participate? hungerbound and I were working on the member list tonight, and there was name after name after name that neither one of us recognized in the slightest.

I realize that some people like to just hang on the sidelines or stay in the background, and that's OK. It's fine if you don't feel the need to make posts.

However, it would be nice if more of you commented more often. One of the best things about this community is the diversity of opinion and experience. While we highly value the opinions of our most active commenters, their opinions don't always represent those of all the other members.

Also, nobody should ever feel that he can't express his opinions for fear of being torn a new one or ridiculed. If you have something to say, say it. On the flip side, if someone has an opinion you don't agree with, you are free to disagree, but please keep your arguments civil and logical. We don't need all that ridiculous drama here.

So basically, you all should participate more! We want to hear your lovely voices (well, I guess we want to read your lovely typing).
