National Eating Disorder Awareness Week - February 20th 2011, 09:48 PM

Hey everyone,

Just to give you a heads up it is National ED Awareness Week. I, who am in recovery from an ED, love this week because it just gives me hope. I fully support this cause because I have been through the pain of being silent. Let everyone you know know about this week.

Thank you posting the link Emma.

Haaai :]

I love this. My sister volunteers at b-eat and is going to this thing for it on Friday. But I'm not doing anything. I guess I don't really know how to make awareness for it. Like for certain things you have colours, but I don't really know if this does. Do you guys know?

But yes. I like this idea
