    I agree it's a terrible illness Somerset, but early on in the addiction these girls make a conscious choice to stop eating. They then become addicted to not eating and being thin and like any addict the only person who can 'cure' them is themself.

    Surely it is their choice to get better but there is no way a person with an bad eating disorder can get out of it without anyones help. I'm sad to see that all these celebrities saying they've had ed's has affected so many people, especially in this forum to think nothing of the illness itself. It's a horrible cycle which is nearly impossible to stop yourself without any help, unless you actually happen to know alot about eating disorders yourself. And most of the time eating disorders are a way to cope with some other dramatic event in life. If you actually read about the people coping with ed's, they've gone through alot of other shit and felt out of control in their lifes. I know nowadays there's alot of these "wannabes" who wish they could have anorexia, but in reality it's such a fucked up desiase which I wouldn't wish to my worst enemies. Sorry if I came out hostile, but people should find out a little bit more about before judging it. No wonder it's even harder for those suffering it to get help when they have to be afraid that people will judge them, "that's the attention seeking anorexic skank!".

    Those pix have been around for a while. Supposedly, they originated from a pro-ana website. Those nuts made them, because they find these bodies desirable. Scary shit!

    @ coolios5o - I understand it's a very serious illness. What I meant by 'helping themselves' is that the person must acknowledge that they have a problem in the first place. Once they do that it's much easier to offer them the help and support they need to conquer it.

    Can I just say thank you? God things like this scare me and add to my motivation to get well again. Not all people with ED's find inspiration to keep their illness with 'thinspiration'. A*O, I agree with you completely. If you force and addict to get help the minute they're left to their own devices they go back to their addiction. Anorexics are addicts. If I hadnt of come to the conclusion that I needed help by myself without promptin and then aked for it and sought the people out rather then being forced then I would have relapsed by now. That article scares me so much. When I was hospitalized I was 1.75m tall and 32kg.

    Yeah, those photographs are obviously photoshopped; but aren't those the faces of famous models just photoshopped onto actual photographs of actual bodies? I will say that if the bodies are photoshopped to look like that, someone did one hell of a job and must've had a photo of a scarily skinny girl to start with, because those arms and legs are for real. They may be narrowed down, but it takes more photoshop skills than most professionals have to make bones stick out that realistically.

    And those bodies look like the photographs of the people who were rescued from concentration camps at the end of WWII - not to mention those for whom it was too late. That's what those bodies make me think of - the piled dead bodies found in camps on WWII photographs. How anybody can look at a body like that and think of anything but death and holocaust is, thankfully, entirely beyond me.

    They're not. All the original photos are out there on the web somewhere - they're actual photoshoots or runway shots of actual models, those clothes, those poses. The models' bodies themselves have been photoshopped to look more emaciated.

    That said, there are certainly people out there who are that scarily thin, whether due to anorexia or other illness. It's just in these cases, the pics aren't real in any way.

    edit: I think the fourth pic (the girl in the black bikini getting her makeup done) may be a situation like you've described. I don't remember seeing that original anywhere, and that head doesn't seem to match the body.

    No, it's not. Only people ignorant to the business say that. They're demanded to be thin and in shape, but nobody forces them to obsess about it or lose an exceeding amount of weight. The model needs to know when what their agency tells them is bullshit and when it's not.

    I hate it when people completely blame the industry. The industry is very twisted right now, without a doubt, but nobody is forcing these girls to lose weight, and it's completely unrealistic to say that all agencies are forcing their models to be a size 0 at 5'9". Most don't encourage it at all because it obviously shows them in an unlikable light. Most models just don't know when to stop though.

    I completely agree with that as well. It's far more serious than simply not eating or wanting to go on a diet. People who laugh at it or act like these people should just snap out of it and "eat a sandwich" disgust me.

    They're pressured into it, encouraged to do it, and even to sign they're told they need to drop so many pounds before they'll even be considered.

    Don't tell me it's not demanded of them. Give me a break. That's like saying the sky isn't blue.
