This community offers several ways to interact, share experiences, ask questions, communicate opinions, and be involved.
Please remember that on the other side of your words is another person – an individual with their own experiences, beliefs, and emotions. This community is not about being right or wrong – it’s about offering you a place to be heard when no one else is listening.
If you have any questions about PrettyThin, the community, and why things are the way they are, please visit our frequently asked questions.
You can also interact externally on one of our social networks.
Forums – This is the most active area on our website. Ask questions, offer advice, and give your opinion on all things ED.
Journals – Make an entry once or as often as you like. Let people know your thoughts, ideas, and opinions. This is not a place for questions – this is a place for you to express yourself.
Stories – Share your story with the community. We all have our reasons for being here, and yours is unique.
Photos – Share your own, personal pictures with the community.
As with any community, the whole is not identified or defined by the actions or opinions of any one individual. We all have our own way of expressing ourselves, and our own reasons for being and acting the way we do. Don’t judge the community or the people inside – there is no value in that – no opportunity for growth. Take a moment to understand, and you may find that you can both gain and offer growth. This is where real change comes from.
PrettyThin is a member supported community. This costs of running this site are shared. Every bit counts, and offers opportunity to do more. This site and community has had ambitious notions of creating sponsorships for school and recovery, for creating publications to better inform people about eating disorders, and much more. Our ability to fund these things has been lacking. If you would like to sponsor our efforts, or are able to make a donation, please support PrettyThin.
If you come across an article about eating disorders and would like to share it with the community, you can do so as a member in our eating disorder articles section.
