My Dear Friend, Ana by omgninjaspazz My Dear Friend, Ana by omgninjaspazz
So, firstly, sorry if this is kinda creepy to some people (my mother freaked and lectured me upon seeing it :P) but yeah. This drawing was partially a rant, and partially an attempt to raise awareness (though I know it wont get far at all). So yeah.

Well, anyway, thanks. And please don't think I'm a total judgmental bitch (which I actually kind of am) that is trying to make fun of people, because that's the last thing I want. I guess by drawing this I was trying to show how serious eating disorders could be (I know, this didn't include binge eating >_>). So sorry if it's offensive to anyone, I really didn't have any malicious intent in making it.
(BTW: I'm putting it as a mature content 'warning' because some of the writing is kinda gloomy, and I'm not sure what dA considers 'mature' so yeah :/ idk. Don't wanna put this in the minds of little children or something.)

*Warning: Beginning of rant*

Selfish rant:

I guess I drew this 'cause I've been getting, even though I have no right to complain about this, a bunch of people have been calling me anorexic lately, and I'm really not. Personally, I think it's disrespectful to anyone who does have ana/mia to call me so. ^^" Sorry. But, seriously guys, if I've been anorexic for as long as I've been accused of being anorexic, I would have probably lost enough weight to build a middle-aged wooly mammoth out of fat cells. I know, gross image.

ANYWAY!

I just got pretty pissed off recently because my dad started screaming and cussing me out about being his stupid anorexic daughter because I didn't want to eat all of a salad that was the size of my freaking head. -_-" So I drew this because I couldn't swear back :D

Second rant: (if you're actually reading all of this then...wow, thanks haha)

Also, I was just thoroughly amazed with how little some people in my age group, when people are supposedly more likely to become anorexic, know about the disorder. I'm sorry guys, but when you hear about someone who is anorexic, you really shouldn't say "EW! SHE'S GROSS! WHY THE HELL WOULD SHE THROW UP??" -_-" I mean, I guess I kind of have respect and/or try to empathize with anyone who has an eating disorder because at one point I did a TON of research on EDs because I was really worried about a friend of mine...but still. 'Gross?' Really?

SORRY ABOUT ALL THAT >_>

*End of rant*

Please don't flame (though I doubt anyone even cares enough about my drawings to do so :P) me about being a sick sociopath or something if you didn't read the ^ above ^ rant for my reasoning.

I love your way of communicating in this drawing. I actually think you are a bit like me as regards ED's. You have a good idea of anorexia, even though you aren't anorexic, in that way you are like me. You wanting to raise awareness is also like me.

hey there! i'm not sure why you're being so apologetic about this piece, I think it gets its point across very well :)
This past year I've been working in a rehab center for women with eating disorders and I think this drawing is a very good representation of how many people feel about themselves and their disorder.

Thanks! It's good to know that it's sending the message I intended.
And, really? That's great that you can help people with their EDs :) I wish I could get a job that could make a difference in someone's life like that. But, again, thanks!

I've actually seen an American documentary about a clinic where those people are. Pretty disturbing. Especially when I like chubby women... Hurr. xD

But yeah, let's get this straight. Anorexia - doesn't eat ---and--- Bulimia - eats and throws up. Right?

Yeah...I've seen a few documentaries and it is pretty shocking.

And yeah, you're right.

Anorexia is so sad..because it becomes more than a deep want, it becomes just part of that person and eats away at them until they're what they want: Nothing
;;
This is a lovely drawing, by the way..I can never understand how humans work P:

Yeah. It's so sad to see someone destroying themselves that way..and how, no matter how much they realize that they need to stop, they just can't. It's horrible. :(

Thanks for the comment though. *phew* I guess the message got across somewhat?
