My biggest pet peeve(s)! about ED communities:
-people coming to try and learn an eating disorder instead of going on a healthy diet, or just trying to pick it up because they think it's cool
-glamorization of eating disorders
-"thinspiration" pictures, celebrity worship
- giving out tips and tricks to those who want to learn disordered behaviour
-referring to "ana" and "mia" as people or friends is disturbing. They are not people, they are disorders, and if they were people, they'd make terrible friends.
How I found my way here:interests search
Questions/comments/concerns: I'm not really sure if I'm EDNOS, but I fit the criteria, and I know something ain't right. Also, my best friend is a recovering anorexic, and I just want to understand what he's going through, and help him in any way I can. I guess what I'm here for is understanding and knowledge, and this community seems to be an excellent source for both. I want to thank you guys for putting out a source of real knowledge amongst the rampant misunderstanding of most livejournal communities.
sorry for the ramble
