Hello everyone here at myproana!

 

I was looking for a place that was similar to Blue Dragonfly and honestly, this is probably the closest I've found! I was a member at Blue Dragonfly for probably 10 yrs or so and then it went to that Evolution thing and I never followed.

I am hoping that I can find support and friendships here. 

 

I have suffered with anorexia and bulimia since I was 14 yrs old. I am THIRTY FOUR now...holy freaking COW I'm oldasdirt(but don't feel it). I started on pro ana sites at age 17 and stopped frequenting the sites around 2010. 

 

I am actually a pretty happy person now days and I feel like since I became HAPPY, I've gained an ass load of weight and I am so embarrassed and I feel like a rolling whale of a cow most days. Since I have been so happy and confident, I didn't want to ruin it by delving back into the world of my controlling ED, but, I've tried every low carb, low sugar, military diet, whole 30, zero calorie, diet pill, diet out there and none of them are working like good old ED used to work for me. SO with that I say...ONWARD! Let's get this party started, lets shake a leg, break a leg or lose some fat off my leg....whatever. I need people to talk to about this stuff and I need to get to losing. 

Thanks for reading. See you all around!!! 

Peace, dirt, and buddhas

Welcome! The BDF message board is still up (up again?), but posts are few and far between. Like you, MPA is the closest thing that I've found for an ED community.

Hey guys! THank you! And I had no idea BDF was still up. I am sure no one I was friends with are still there. . . sad how you can lose touch after being in eachother's lives EVERY DAY and in the most intimate details too. 

ONLYMINE - it's nice to hear there is someone else my age...I'll have to come check you out. Thank you for the welcome!

Hello everyone here at myproana!

 

I was looking for a place that was similar to Blue Dragonfly and honestly, this is probably the closest I've found! I was a member at Blue Dragonfly for probably 10 yrs or so and then it went to that Evolution thing and I never followed.

 

If you are specifically looking for a place that is a modern BDF then hands down the place for you is https://ProAna.online.

 

It's designed as a 2018 incarnation of the original Bluedragonfly of the mid-2000s (as well as the original Pro Ana Online from 2010-2011) for those, who are now 10-15 years older, find themselves still very much with an eating disorder but don't necessarily fit in with those here on MPA as young as 13 or 14.

 

"A place focused on working-age adults, professionals, and other mature PAO members looking to share support with their peers in managing a balance between the pressures of ED/mental health issues and the realities of adult life/parenting/careers/etc."
