You might also find pro-ana sites, which are hard to explain...
They also use the term "ana" as if were a real person, a friend of theirs.
"My best friends are ana& mia, they will make me become perfect"
I am ana except for when I want some Dairy Queen and eat 6,000,000,000 calories worth of shit.
KATE MOSS IS SO ANA!
there are many arguements over the use of this word. some believe the girls who use the ana dont actually have an eating disorder, they just want one, wannabes who try to have an eating disorder and flaunt their lack of calories in blogs such as on xanga,livejournal and myspace.
others believe that ana is simply a lazy way to say anorexia, and cant be bothered to actually type that every time.
whatever you believe, anorexia is not a fad, trend or anything but what it truely is; a disease that ruins lives, not only that of the sufferer. families are torn apart, and lives are lost. anorexia can prevent you from having children, cause heart,liver and kidney problems and cause hair lose.
'ana is my only friend.'
ana (and that) = etc (et cetera)
