1. Individuals suffering from Anorexia Nervosa (AN) or other restrictive eating disorders (ED's): Commonly, this approach to living with an ED stems from barriers to treatment and a subsequent desire to reach out and connect with kindred sufferers for support. They may or may not be recovery-oriented. Genuine ED sufferers who identify as ProAna embrace the term as PROACTIVE IN ANOREXIA - making the most of their Lives despite their disorder. This group includes those for whom treatment is inadequate, inaccessible or unwanted.
2. Individuals who covet pathology; who emulate anorexic behaviors and WANT to cultivate and celebrate ED's within themselves (aka "wanarexics"). These individuals have taken an historical empowerment motto and twisted it's intended meaning to a literal interpretation (i.e., a disavowal of victim mentality as an empowerment strategy -- they actually believe that "Anorexia is a Lifestyle, Not A Disease." These are individuals who do NOT have ED's but wish they did; those who strive to attain the extremely thin physique exhibited in long-term anorexics; who emulate the eating-disordered practices which manifest in AN patients.
The former are seeking a new approach to living with these insidious illnesses; reaching out when current treatment modalities have failed to help. The articulation of the "Ana Creed" and "Ana Psalm"; "Thin Commandments" and "Letters from Ana or Mia" were intended as CREATIVE ALLITERATIONS; explorations of the ED psyche - they were NEVER meant to be taken literally! This is a critical issue. Wanarexics have embraced these creative works as literal tenets for "how to become anorexic."
The latter are resented by genuine sufferers who know all-too-well that ED's are not glamorous or cool or chic in any way.
The definition of Pro-ana is someone who promotes the eating disorder anorexia nervosa. There are many pro-ana organizations who offer their support for anorexics.
pro ana actually... its the promotion of anorexia
The website Prettythin is one such Pro Ana online website. One can get help from a dedicated agent from the official website if one requires the help.
Hi there! The prefix "pro" means you are in favor of something (in this case, either "mia" or "ana"). "Mia" is short for bulimia, and "ana" is short for anorexia. Both bulimia and anorexia are serious eating disorders- Generally, bulimia is characterized with extreme over-eating (binge) and then purge via laxatives or vomitting. Anorexia on the other hand is characterized with extreme under-eating and the thought that they are fat when actually, are emaciated. Basically, the difference between pro-mia and pro-ana is that someone who is pro-mia is a supporter of bulimia and the latter is a supporter of anorexia.
Basic facts: Pro-Ana braclets are red, Pro-Mia bracelets are blue. (Anorexia and Bulimia, just to clarify). Pro-Mia blues go on the right wrist. Most Pro-Ana reds go on the left wrist. Struggling pro-ana's might put the red on the wrist the eat with to remind them not to eat. (For left-handed anorexic, it doesn't make a difference.
