  4. lost demon says

    Bruh the 1k people who disliked straight up bully people and support eating disorders

  5. Gerald Spessard says

    I have such sympathy for girls like that. But, I know hundreds of people who look like land whales and are perfectly happy with themselves. Most are destined to ride the electric shopping cart at Walmart.

  6. StarDustwolf 77 says

    When I found out her friend wasn’t even real, I was in shock. That’s my situation…

  7. Batmanna Man says

    Respect. And i feel her koz I suffered anorexia for 2 years. What a hell

  8. B I N I B I N I says

    Ana represents the negative thoughts of a mentally illed person that keeps bringing him/her down. That's how it exactly feels, you know you're not well, you know what you should do, you know you're getting worse. But still, your powerful negative thoughts win, it will control you. ?

  9. Janette Torres says

    Omf I literally read the comments which spoiled who ana was and the still caught me by surprise

  10. Allison Kennedy says

    An ad from Victoria's Secret popped up while watching this!?

  11. John Pruett says

    I can't help but wonder the percentage of eating disorders in 2nd or 3rd world countries.

  12. Mika Diaz says

    I feel the same

  13. Jason McCaffrey says

    Well written, well shot, and great performances. Bravo! What did you shoot with?

  14. Tabinda qureshi says

    I am a bulimia patient and it's not only this.. Its even worse!! It worse… So worse.

  15. Ruby Steven says

    completely irrelevant but that main girl is really pretty like wow

  16. BE Gypsy says

    Society conditions us to hate ourselves, because it serves the needs of those who want to sell us shit we don't need, or to allow ourselves to be exploited. Your life is your own. Free yourself and take it back.

  17. Jumeirah Margeux says

    Is it bad that i already know Anna

  18. Weijia Kwok says

    Nah I'm proud of my ED :l

  19. Israt Mimu says

    I can imagine myself here..

  20. albaraa hallaj says

    It's a horror movie,
    It really gets me scared

  21. Kira Whiteman says

    her name is the same as mine and we are exactly alike

  22. Hannia Hernandez says

    And the next part is when she knows Mia, a gets like:
    —Oh shit, I ate… Let's starve myself!
