I was randomly searching the community promo community, and this one caught my eye.

Basic Intro
Name: Lauren
Age: 18
Why you joined, what you're looking for: I'm looking for support to finally start treating my body the way it deserves. I've 'recovered' from anorexia for a couple years, but I still struggle. I finally want some peace, and to finally be healthy. :)
Have any goals? I'd like to excerise a couple times a week, and eat healthy.
Anything you'd like to add: I think this community sounds like a great idea.

Optional
Gender: female
Location: Ottawa,Ontario,Canada
Pictures: I'll post some behind a cut
A little about yourself: I suffered from a horrible eating disorder when I was 14 until about 16 or 17. I was in the hospital for over a year. I also suffered from severe depression, anxiety and self harm. Over the past couple years, I have slowly been improving my life. I no longer self harm.

I love to shop, and I shop way too much. It's like my new addiction, instead of not eating. I have two jobs, and I should of graduated from high school this year. But since I was in the hospital for so long, I missed about a year of school. My parents divorced when I was young. Anyway, I've come a long way, but I still have quite a while to go! :)

Pictures of myself under the cut..





I'm not special, but here I am..:)

Im glad that my being a promotion whore worked! mwahaha

we have some things in common. depression (though Im not unipolar Im bipolar), anxiety (which has been giving me a lot of trouble lately eep) the self injury the fact that I've always wanted to go to canada ha and you live there and I was bulimic at 14 to now- and Im trying to stop and Im 17 ha. on and Im a senior.

Im glad you broke -somewhat- free from your eating disorder. I feel that eating disorders are like alcoholics in that you'll always have one but you can be recovered from it, like an alcoholic is always one just a recovered one.

is your hair naturally like that! its so saucy and cute. lot of personality in it. :)

Welcome! I'm glad you joined.
You've overcome such a lot already in your life, good for you =D How far you've come since your struggle with an eating disorder began is wonderful. Being able to stop self harming is amazing and very inspiring.
I've been to Ontario a couple times, and I absoutely love it there. Lucky =P

You know what? I have no idea who the model is. It's cropped off a picture. I can try to find out though.
