wannarexia
 n.— «By now, we all know the symptoms: a refusal to eat or to acknowledge an unhealthy weight, combined with physical problems like heart palpitations, hair loss, and amenorrhea. It sounds like a nightmare—but for many young women, anorexia has become a hot new trend, so common that medical experts have coined a new name, ‘wannarexia,’ to describe the dangerous fad.» —“Wannarexia: When Death Becomes Trendy” by Katie Drummond Her Active Life Aug. 8, 2007.
