Default Fuck pro-ana/mia

Anyone who tries to promote an ED as a lifestyle choice is a fucking idiot of the highest order. This isn't a valid lifestyle, it's is a fucking addiction and one I can't control. It was bad enough when I had a drink problem but now I have a purge problem as well? Gah, don't mind me, I'm just so pissed off with everything right now I'm almost looking for things to be pissed off about.

I'm in a really bad way at the moment, just generally, and I wasn't really thinking right when I made this thread. I just felt like ranting against something. Earlier today I went home during a break from work, ate some sandwiches and spent so long purging I was nearly late back from my break. I was so lost in what I was doing, purging, downing water, purging, downing water, repeat repeat repeat... and this isn't out of the ordinary, I do it nearly every day. And it occurred to me.... I don't do it when I'm feeling especially bad. I don't do it out of guilt of eating too much (I mean I have done it because of that but it isn't the primary cause). I do it, just because. It's a part of my lifestyle. It's a part of what I do. I plan it. If I have the time and privacy, I do it. I purge like most guys masturbate, given the opportunity I'll fucking do it. Not out of desperation or even always a release, but purely for the fucking sake of it. It feels good, I feel better when I do it. And it just seemed to hit home today how much this is consuming me and destroying me, just how much it's become such a standard part of my life that I do it without even thinking, just how much I like doing it, and how shitty I feel when I try not to do it. And the irresponsibility that anyone could have to promote living like this, that someone else would go through what I'm going through because someone says it's a lifestyle that should be respected... I find that an insult to my own struggle, not to mention the danger of someone else getting hooked on it. This isn't the way to live, it isn't the way to be... this is fucking shit.

Yeah, proana/mia can only destroy.
I can relate to wanting someone else with ana/mia with me, to talk and find support, but I'd NEVER EVER tell a healthy person to do things that'd make 'em sick. I'd ofc support another suffering from an ED to get better, I wouldn't want anyone else in this hell with me.
Any proana/mia out here - don't fucking destroy someone elses life just cause you want someone to encourage you to loose weight to justify your actions. It's not OKEY.

Yeah it's freaking insane. Pro ana and related crap allows people to forget what Anorexia really is, which is a mental illness. And by the time you realise what you've done, it's too late and you're obsessed.

I see it as a mockery of an illness that haunts a lot of people. Not nice!

Pro-anorexia/bulimia sites are a bit like "fucking idiots, don't they know that I'm GIFTED to hear the voices of the dead everywhere I go? Fuck sake, I KNOW I'm a demi-god. Who else hears them? How do you best obey them?" If those sites existed for schizophrenia, they'd be shut down.

Exactly, who would promote a drug addiction as a lifestyle choice? Although, I guess there are people who kinda do...

Like I said, not sure why I made this thread, was just pissed off and looking to rant about anything so I picked this. But still, I'm purging really heavily at the moment (managed not to today though, managed to eat about 1500cals too) so I'm just kinda pissed off with seeing how I'm hurting myself yet can't seem to stop. If you'd have told me a year ago this would be happening to me I wouldn't have believed you.
