If you want to feel

If you want to feel like you are really mentally healthy and in control of your life, this article from the NY Times on online chat groups and clubs for girls with eating disorders should do it for you. [login required] It also might depress the hell out of you. It's one thing for these girls who suffer from a common affliction to come together to support each other, but it seems some of the communities on these sites might be appealing enough to some insecure girls to encourage them to start in on the same self-destrictive behavior. Photo galleries of "thinspirational" super-skinny actresses like Calista Flockhart? Doesn't sound so supportive to me.
