SKIN AND BONES
Creator: [Daisy le Fleur]


This wiki is designed to be an informative outreach to young women and girls who think that they have to be skin and bones to be accepted. Do you starve yourself? Do you find yourself constantly staring at your image in the mirror wishing you could just lose a little more weight? Do you ever skip meals, only to gorge yourself later and then purge? If so you may have an eating disorder, and need to speak to someone who can help you. Or maybe you don't have the problem, maybe you know someone who does. There are so many dangers that come with eating disorders. Death being one of them. We must fight this epidemic ladies. Lets stop perpetuating the vicious cycle.






Another wiki point of interest on Eating Disorders is:

If you need to talk to someone or just chat about any questions or concerns, there is a live chat at www.somethingfishy.org that you can go to.

2005-10-09 [Daisy le Fleur]: I would rather be healthy with 5 lbs to lose than skinny and putting my health at risk. I don't know what those supplements I took have done to my heart. They may not affect me unitl I get olderl...but its not good either way. STarving yourself does the same thing..it damages your vital organs.

2005-10-09 [Daisy le Fleur]: I agree the exercise is healthy...its just too easy to go overboard and keep pushing too hard

2005-10-09 [Zab]: Pushing isn't good..or..*shrugs* I wouldn't blame the exercise, but when anyone exersice for being slim I guess it's a big risk they also cut down their food..which woyld be..ehm..not good..

2005-10-09 [Zab]: wohw! You're typing too fast for me! O_o yeah..eh..it looks like we do agree, then...

2005-10-09 [Daisy le Fleur]: hehehe...sorry I type quick when I am on a roll...lol

2005-10-09 [Daisy le Fleur]: yeah, I remember when i was running i was always hungry...more calories to burn thing...I could eat like a piglet, and not get full like I usually do.

2005-10-09 [Zab]: No worries. :) I lost..eh..don't know the weight, I check how many cm I have in my waist instead..but 10cm this summer..by only sitting in front of the computer...Oo and eating dinner and candy and stuff like usual...

2005-10-09 [Daisy le Fleur]: Imiss running actually.not so much for the weight loss part..but I just feel better after I do it....my energy goes up...my endorphins kick in..I just feel better all around....my self esteem goes up..like I accomplished something ya know?

2005-10-09 [Zab]: I feel like that with the school-food..Oo (I live at my school) no matter how much I eat, I'm always hungry...and I don't exercise in any way, except riding once a week..

2005-10-09 [Zab]: yeah, I know what you mean...I used to walk a few hours a day before, didn't help my weight at all, but I was in better shape psycically (spelled?) and I was amazed I could walk for so long-..*lol* I don't run... it's too hard on my asthma and I hate taking the meds, it makes it worse to the next time I walk..

2005-10-09 [Daisy le Fleur]: You'd be amazed how good it feels once you start..you really get pumped up

2005-10-09 [Zab]: :)

2005-10-18 [IzzyKSK]: I try to do like 300 crunches every night ^_^ it makes me sleep well, and ofcourse keeps me in shape =D

2005-11-01 [IzzyKSK]: I was kinda wondering what you all thought about the hospitals where they "make you better" and recover from anorexia.. Cause most of the time they just get you to normal weirght and you are cured. You can't work out so you muscles get really weak, they feed you way to much to gain weight, and you mind can't adjust to your new "self" and then they state the fallback is so high because teh person doesn't want to get better.. WHat do you think about those treathment, and do you know where they do it better, end get into you brain not your body? Do you have positive experinces from those kind of "rehabs"?

2005-11-02 [must be loved]: i think that the best kinda treatment is just having people who support you....wanting to get better also helps

2005-11-02 [Daisy le Fleur]: I think that getting better must first be a change in your mental state. I think that you aren't going to get better unitl you want to. People can force you to eat and tell you it looks good, but you have to believe it...you have to know it. Otherwise you'll just see it as "fat" and not "health" and go back to starving and purging. I do not now where you should go for that..in particular I mean...but I think a psychologist or a counselor or some kind of doctor can be a good step. Of course just asking for help is the biggest step you can take. Admitting that there is a problem that you can't fix or control..that's huge.

2005-11-02 [Daisy le Fleur]: Check the Get Help link on the main page..there are numbers there you can call =)

2006-03-14 [IzzyKSK]: I haven't been here so long, while i should have been I think. I'm thinking of getting help, but i'm also saying to myself there is nothing wrong. A really good friend of mine died the first of fabruar because he had an heartattack, and now I'm afraid to die like that too. It's getting so bad with my heart my body can't even warm up sometimes, and I start shivering so much. Does anybody know how to get over your own idears about not being sick, and getting help?

2006-09-13 [sequeena_rae]: *random comment* We must fight this epidemic ladies. And men :P Anorexia and Bulimia is growing in numbers for men, though it is still a small amount compared to how many women have Anorexia and Bulimia.

2006-09-13 [Daisy le Fleur]: That is true! Pardon my oversight =(

2006-09-13 [sequeena_rae]: It's okay :D
