I wanted to make a community for all the girls & boys with eating disorders who are grossly overlooked in the medical encyclopedias, textbooks, manuals, on tv, in books, and in movies.
Whether you're Black, Hispanic, Asian, Native, whatever. From India, Guatemala, South Africa, America or some tiny island nobody's even heard of. I want members of every color, from all around the globe. Tell us your story.

A list of just some of the countries that have reported eating disorders:
Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Czech Republic, Denmark, Egypt, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Iran, Israel, Italy, Japan, Mexico, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Nigeria, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, former Soviet Union, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, United States

A few things....
*We're not pro-ED, so please don't bring that nonsense here.

*If your English isn't perfect, that's fine! Don't be afraid to post or comment because of it. I'm a native speaker and my English isn't so great either. ;) And you know what? If you can't figure out how to say it in English, you can just say in your native language. It's all good.

*Try to stay open-minded and all that jazz and refrain from making racist or prejudiced remarks. I'm hoping through our discussions, we'll all be able to learn and become more culturally aware. Ignorance will get us nowhere.
