    ...sort of like a "buddy system" to make sure each of them remains anorexic. I won't go into too much detail about why I suspect this. Mainly overheard conversations.

    I've always thought of these eating disorders as solitary, lonesome afflictions. Do these girls ever work together like this?

    Oh yes, they do. There are whole "ana" groups, websites and shit to support people who are anorexic, and it's not to help them be WELL, it's to enable them to remain anorexic.

    Sometimes you see it with friends that they 'copy' influences from eachother, wether it be hairstyle, same dressing or clothes, where they go or where they buy things, lifestyle can therefore also be a copy as such anorexia could become a copied lifestyle in a person even despite that the afflicted friend would not have any heritage per se to get involved in such behaviour. In other words people can make eachother crazy.

    Most anorexic girls group together, and it becomes a constant competition. Just like you have a workout buddy to keep you in check when trying to healthily lose weight, anorexic peoples have support groups in which to be held accountable. There are indeed pro-anorexic forums where girls post for advice on how to lose more weight and eat less foods.

    It's a very sad disorder.
