The promotion of ANOREXIA NERVOSA as a lifestyle choice, Rather than an EATING DISORDER.
A lesser known term is PRO MIA refers likewise to BULIMIA NERVOSA. Sometimes interchangeably used with PRO ANA.
There are websites and forums promoting PRO ANA.
They show you real ideas and hints on how to be extremely sick.
They swap pictures for ideas too.
THIS IS ALL FCKING DISTURBING AND UPSETTING.
Social networks such as Facebook, Myspace, Xanga, Bebo, and many other related sites also promote the so called support for the illness more than the sufferers.
Members of the internet groups share..... Tips and techniques on crash dieting, compete with each other to lose weight, advise on how to induce vomiting, tips on hiding the severe weight loss from friends and family, and suggestions on ways to ignore hunger pangs.
I checked with all kinds of doctors and websites to see if i got my facts right before creating this blog, its something close to my heart as a former sufferer. Im not proud of it.
But im trully not impressed that groups are still ongoing.
And do remember that males/boys also have this condition too and not to stereo type it.
As anorexia is well known to have more girls/women having it.
I wonder what my followers think of my comments and feelings on the subject.
