++ Anorexia Nervosa Awareness by dimruthien ++ Anorexia Nervosa Awareness by dimruthien
Anorexia nervosa is a psychiatric diagnosis that describes an eating disorder characterized by low body weight and body image distortion with an obsessive fear of gaining weight. Individuals with anorexia often control body weight by voluntary starvation, purging, vomiting, excessive exercise, or other weight control measures, such as diet pills or diuretic drugs.

Thanks for this; it infuriates me that most people don't think you're anorexic until you're so emaciated that you can hardly walk. That's NOT always what anorexia is. It screws up your mind, it' a mental disease and society doesn't realize this. Getting skinny, believe it or no, is the side effect. Please spread the word.

Anorexia isn't always characterized by a persons weight =/

This always upsets me ... One person in particular said I can't be ana because I'm overweight.

Well - Aint that something good to say ehh? Tell someone whos ana she cant be ana because shes a fat fuck >.<

I'm sorry I don't know what else to say... I'm terrible with words, but this random stranger wanted to offer you some support.

I'm not anorexic but like Baz135, someone close to me is and I support the awareness of it.

Could you make a stamp for bulimia awareness? I can't find one anywhere.
