Eating Disorder Support Group

Welcome
Art can be a fantastic way of expressing our thoughts and exploring our Eating Disordered lives. This group is for anyone in recovery from an Eating Disorder (Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, Compulsive Overeating and Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified).

We encourage members to post non-triggering creative art and literature that are aimed at addressing the underlying causes of the disease, feelings and emotions.

Who can join?
This group is for anyone who is currently suffering from any Eating Disorder or is a family or friend who knows someone who is suffering

Rules
1) Art must be concentrated on the underlying causes, feeling or emotions of the ED and be anti-ED; this is not a place for sources of thinspiration

2) Omit numbers and sizes as must as possible; numbers do not define one's successes or worth

3) All work must be somehow related to your struggle with your eating disorder

"In this contest, we want to hear your story. If you are in a place of healing and recovery after battling an illness, addiction or form of abuse, we want to hear how you made it there. In other words, I am looking for a POSITIVE conclusion, even if the majority of the story is dark or explicit (make sure to attach Mature Content filters where appropriate). We want you to be able to share the darkest parts of your journey, and how you made it back into the light. Let me emphasize: we will NOT accept deviations that don't contain some sort of positive message of hope or inspiration. If you would like to write about the journey of someone else's recovery, be it a close friend or family member, and how their journey affected you we will accept that as well, again as long as the conclusion is meant to inspire hope."

:) You are already loving yourself a bit more by making that question. I don't know how to help you, but good luck.

I contributed a poem called Drop Dead ED almost 3 days ago and it still hasnt been approved. I'm just wondering why? I know it has a mature rating on it but it has a positive message at the end.

I feel like when I finally get thin (I'm currently 209 pounds. I look 150) my family will care more.

Oh Hun, don't. Your family cares, I'm sure they do. If you need to talk, message me please.

Usually familial care and concern isn't governed by size. But I do know what you mean, you want them to notice.

Heya! I'm PF (or Aurora or Auti) I used to be a dancer where I was trained to watch my weight continually until I developed an illness/disability that leaves me bedridden or uNable to move. Sometimes food is all I can control.
I don't like pity, won't bit and love questions and helping others.
I'm not quite sure where my misadventures with food began but I'm trying hard to keep up the fight.
Dance like no one's watching!
PF
