I've been in recovery for an eating disorder for years and I am member of both Something Fishy site and Sparks People.
I use Spark People to get sound nutritional information and Something Fishy for daily support.
Something Fishy is board like Sparks People but we are not allowed to talk about numbers, weight, or food. It use to be moderated by paid moderators and a very safe place.
There is no other place on the net that was as safe as Something Fishy. There are tons of recovery eating disorder support sites, but they are not moderated by trained full time professionals like Something Fishy was once.
Bottom line: A company called CRC took over Something Fishy and let go of the paid moderators and the volunteer mods step down.
The start of a very stressful holiday season for people who suffer from mental illness is about to begin and we were not given a smooth transition.
Essential the most sound eating disorder recovery website is without reliable mods. Eating disorders sufferers have the highest mortality rates of all mental illness and high comorbidity rates of self-harm etc.
Our community is asking for help in awareness to this problem and a possible solution to this situation. Also, please take care of your family members who use this site as a form of daily support.
