THIS IS A CLOSED COMMUNITY! THEREFORE YOU MUST BE ASKED TO JOIN AND YOU MAY BE ASKED TO LEAVE IF YOU DO NOT FOLLOW THE RULES!
SO WHAT IS THIS? this is a community where people who have an eating disorder which involves being on a "fast". You can discuss anything about your eating disorder in the community but you will also have other people from the community that you can contact (through email or instant messaging) if you have a problem or just need to talk to someone. People in this community will be "fast friends". Meaning that you can have friends who are here for you during your fasting time who understand where you are coming from.
HOW DO I JOIN? well you can't just join! In fact you might not be able to join at all! The thing about this community is that only one person from each state is allowed to join! That way you can feel comfortable knowing that your next door neighbor isn't a member of the community and reading your personal posts! I know this might be a problem if more then one person from a state wish to join but that is just how the cookie crumbles! I will also accept people from outside of the united states! so feel free to join as well! If you would like to join then you MUST email me (the mod) with the following survery filled out! And please put "fast friends survey" as your subject! If it is not the subject then I will delete the email and not even read it! I NEVER open emails if I a.I don't know the person or b.the email doesn't have the proper subject... (sorry I am paranoid about getting a virus!)
