We have had a resurgence of the boards recently and we decided it was also time to update our main site here. As a site, Cerulean Butterfly has evolved throughout the years. In the beginning, we were associated more with the 'pro-anorexia' movement; however over the years, as our site has grown and developed, our stance has changed. We now consider our site to be not 'pro-anorexia', but 'pro-reality'. Our mission is to educate people from all backgrounds about what exactly an eating disorder is, as well as offer support to those struggling or not ready to recover.
Cerulean Butterfly also offers support to those suffer from mental illness, self harm , sexual abuse and addiction issues. We at CB know how difficult these issues can be and we are here to support and help in any way possible.
While we encourage health and happiness for our members, we also support members still struggling with any kind of illness. Our mantra: YOU ARE NEVER ALONE! You can always find another Butterfly here who understands what you are going through. We are a community and strive to offer love and support to all our members in whatever situation relevant to their lives. The only proviso is that to join the forum you must be suffering from an eating disorder and over 15 years of age.
Over the 10 years that we have been a community, many of us have met in real life on several occasions. Many of us have made new best friends and have grown up together. We have social events and we have strengthened our bonds by continuing to offer support and encouragement to any Butterfly in need. We have Butterflies of all ages here, and welcome anyone above the age of 15. We have laughed, cried, screamed together all while offering continuing love and support to each other. This is what makes Cerulean Butterfly a solid, safe, and supportive community. Come join us and see what a wonderful feeling it is to be a part of an accepting group of wonderful people!
