Welcome to Cerulean Butterfly!
We have had a resurgence of the boards recently and we decided it was also time to update our main site here. 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 feel part of an accepting group of wonderful people!
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 providing knowledge of the dangers and threats associated with the issue.
Do not visit our site or forum if you are hoping to develop an eating disorder or wish to lose a few pounds. We believe that an eating disorder does NOT constitute a lifestyle choice, but a terrible and life threatening disease.
This means that while we offer acceptance, honesty and understanding to those in any state of eating disorder, we also encourage recovery and health in every possible way. Our mantra: YOU ARE NEVER ALONE! You can always find another Butterfly here who understands this terrible disease and knows what it is like to live with. We are a community and strive to offer love and support to all our members in whatever they are going through in 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.
May peace, health and happiness prevail amongst all. *Cerulean Butterfly is not affiliated with any other websites. Links from other websites have not been approved by Cerulean Butterfly, nor do we accept responsibility for the content of such websites.
