All Members


This community is for anyone currently in recovery or trying to recover from an eating disorder. One does not have to be actively pursuing help or in therapy to be a member. Accepting that our behavior is not normative is a step in the right direction. The intention of this community is to bring people suffering through the same disorders and recovery process together. Just as often as people with eating disorders share similar hardships, those trying to recover feel the same way. Sometimes it helps to know you aren't alone. That just because it hurts doesn't mean you're doing something wrong. We're all in this together ♥

membership is regulated
*in order to become a member click the join community button and send an e-mail to believinginbeautiful@yahoo.com telling me a little bit about yourself and your past with an eating disorder/any attempts at recovery. it doesn't have to be a lot, just something to insure our privacy is maintained.
*once you have been accepted (and if you apply it is highly unlikely that you will not be accepted) please post and intro post just saying hi and as much about yourself as you feel comfortable sharing
*please try to remain active. it is understandable that everyone has bad days, weeks, or months but just think how much it means to you to read someone's comment to your post

*negative comments will not be tolerated and may lead to one being asked to leave the group
*be supportive, we're all generally in the same place
*do not use names like ana or mia
*if you suspect something you are posting might be triggering place it under and lj cut with a caption as to what exactly might be triggering about it. for example "I binged today"
*do not feel as if you cannot say something within the community, if you are feeling a certain way its very likely that someone else is feeling the same way

"I want to know if you can see Beauty
even when it is not pretty
every day.
And if you can source your own life
from its presence."
