Anorexics.net was orginally a forum I used to frequent back in early 2001 ish, I was 23. I would like to say my ED behaviour is gone and I’m a picture of health, but I am not. I’m still fighting this bullshit, I’m just older and starting to go grey around my temples. I don’t know what prompted me to look up the forum again, but I did and discovered the domain was for sale, so I snapped it up and here we are.
I have no desire to start a forum or run a chat, I just wanted to make sure the domain was used for good as it was in the forum days.
I always found the forum to be a warm supportive place regardless of why everyone was there or at what stage they were in their journey. I never knew anyone’s real name from the forum so have no contact with anyone from those days. If anyone from the old forum does every find this place, I hope life finds you well and you are loved. My username on the forum is the same as it is here.
I’ve tried other forums over the years but I could never find the support or friendship that I found on Anorexics.net. I miss that place, I miss the sense of safety and the feeling of belonging.
Comments are switched on, but I honestly don’t know if I’ll answer, so please don’t expect one. I don’t know what the end game is here, I’m just posting for the sake of offering up an explanation.
I hope this post finds you well, whoever you are and wherever you are.
You have value and you are loved.
