ED: I actually don't have an eating disorder. I'm very interested in joining this community because I have a couple friends who have disordered eating or diagnosed disorders. I basically want to be able to have a better understanding what they're going through without pressuring them to talk about it.
My biggest pet peeve about ED communities: Even though I don't suffer from an eating disorder I have seen other communities in my search for something like the one you have here. The thing that bothers me the most about them? Spelling. The ana_in_college community lists 'bulemia' as an interest. Wow.
How I found my way here: Searching LJ.
Questions/comments/concerns: I guess I just hope it's okay that I'm attempting to join. If y'all (no I'm not from the south...) are uncomfortable with it I totally understand.
