Heis, you should sell them.  I am pretty sure you could independently bring back the trend.  And probably earn enough money to move out of your parents' at the same time.  I'm just sayin'.

I'd buy one. I don't know why I'd feel better for having and wearing one, but somehow, the idea appeals.

There were other bracelets too. Sure blue was for Bulimia and black for self harm. Ednos had one but I can’t remember it’s colour

You're right; I think Ednos was purple. Green was for something too, but I don't remember what.


I always figured the red bracelet thing was a relic from the pre/early internet days, a way of finding other people in the ED community. Now that we've got enough pockets on the internet that we don't necessarily need them.

(Which is ironic coming from me, who randomly decided to wear a red bracelet this morning :P)

I made a red bracelet recently with beads on it that say "100" (because I wanna lose 100 pounds/be 100 pounds) and my friend asked what it said, and I was like "100, you know, like keep it 100!" lmao

i certainly didn’t know it was a thing until I became sick a year ago (i’m 23) and honestly I kinda wish it were a thing... I feel totally stranded and alone, it would make me feel like I actually had people to talk to IRL.

I used to wear red/blue thread to symbolize ana and Mia 🙄🙄 that was a million years ago, probably 2010/11 or so. Not a lot of people I knew went to /that part/ of the internet though so no one recognized it. Nowadays I feel like it's pretty common knowledge

I dont think they should come back as I feel the "pro ana" community GENERALLY has evolved and isnt like it was in many ways. The bracelet to me symbolises what it was and many people who are older now are facing consequences health wise of being sucked into the old pro ana scene as a teenager and a very chronic ed

 

BUT

 

I think bracelets for people in recovery of an ed would be cool, and an interesting conversation starter too in real life as I suspect those in recovery can sometimes feel lonely especially without supportive family which not everyone has the privilege of

Well red bracelets are now kabbalah bracelets.  Esty has a bunch of bracelets for eating disorders but they are all for people in recovery.

omg I remember being in middle school and making my own red bracelets lmao so embarrassing. The fact that I bought a simple red bracelet (not a pro ana one, just red beads) when I was a freshman in high school is even more embarrassing. I still have them. Somewhere...

I’d do the red bracelet thing if it came back :-)


if someone wanted to bring something like that back we could do snake charms since they are the queens of thinssspo



okay but i mean all jokes aside, id do this. as cringe as all the butterfly stuff that was related to it was, it still does kind of appeal to be able to send out a little "hey, i get it. im suffering too." to people with your condition without having to go to a support group or anything else im not ready for. i think if i was in public and i saw a red bracelet or a snake bracelet or something, i wouldn't necessarily approach the person but i would feel a little less alone. itd be comforting.
