i am glad ive found a community like this, it seems like a good place to vent what i feel i need to. and if this offends certain people who know me, then so be it. you have your free speech and i have mine.
ive watched several of my friends battle with eating disorders through high school/college/whatever, and it feels like things have gotten really extreme with a very close friend lately and its getting out of hand. besides worrying about her night and day, (i know, i know, shes an adult and has the right to make her own choices about how she lives her life) it makes me sick to see her bones poking out everywhere, and knowing that whats going on inside is probably just as bad, if not worse (physically and emotionally). but the thing that frustrates me the most is people in person and over the internet who glorify spending every waking moment obsessing over themselves.
imagine what could be accomplished if this energy were put to a good use.
oh and i love how they give eating disorders cute little names, "ana" and "mia".
