New members: Please proceed to the introduction section of the forums. You must post an introduction or complete the survey in order for your membership to be fully active!
Topics may be triggering and some views on recovery may discourage you from attempting to recover. If you are in recovery and choose to join this site in spite of this, you have been warned. Some here consider traditional recovery to be a myth but we are respectful to each others ideas and goals.
The purpose of this site is to have a place where you can truly say what you feel without fearing you are helping those who are looking to become disordered, or without discouraging those who are currently in recovery or are hoping to recover in the near future. If we are constantly editing what we say, then the conversations and discussion lose the honesty and truth behind how we actually feel. Including about recovery, alternative or traditional and Pro Ana
It is also a place where you can explore different topics often considered taboo at others sites, without fearing judgment and/or being told it is inappropriate. We are all adults here, therefore if you aren't comfortable with a certain discussion, then please don't join in.
While respect for all members is a must, it is ok to disagree with opinions, and know that others will also disagree with you. That is what constitutes a discussion! If you are uncomfortable with the wide range of topics regarding eating disorders, then this is probably not the place for you. If you are unable to explore alternative views to your own, then this is probably not the best fit for you either!
Reclaim Pro Ana! Do not let media define us. Pro Ana mean different things for different people. It is just a word. A confusing word. We support the individual. Period.
Disclaimer: (as required by Webs.com)
Anorexia & bulimia may be harmful "activities". We do not encourage this activity. Should you feel that you have a problem and need help, or feel unhealthy, please to talk to someone that can help you through this.
PS the required disclaimer is actually phrasing it to lame. Anorexia (bulimia, orthorexia and so on) are not activities at all. Anorexia is a disorder. A disorder can never, ever, be a good thing!
