Ana's Friend - July 16th 2010, 08:32 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of eating disorders, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

My beautiful friend Samantha, so full of life and hope and happiness, one day made friends with ANA, and this turned her into a darkened shell of her original being. Her weight plummeted until she collapsed. Still even then calories where such an evil sin, they made you fat, they made you ugly. All Ana's fault. Even water was a sin, it had a single calorie in and that was too much for her

I'm so sorry to hear about your friend. It can be incredibly deadly and truly destroy a person's personality when they have an eating disorder. I hope that throughout her struggle you're remembering to take care of yourself, too.

I'm sorry for Sam. An ED takes your mind as well, it makes you act like this. All you can do for her is show her you love her. Never leave she alone because it'd make her be closer to Ana. Try to encourage she to eat and never comment on her looks.
It's nothing much you can do, just hope she realizes what she's doing to herself.
I hope she'll be ok.
All the best xx

I'm sorry about your friend. It can be pretty hard for someone from the outside to understand what is going on in there head. The best thing you can do is just be there for her. But remember to look after yourself as well.
