Life without Anorexia

My motto is
'Dont let the sadness of your past & the fear of your future ruin the happiness of your present'

My life at the moment is completely different to how it once was. I spent 5 years sick with anorexia nervosia and depression as well as struggling with self harm and overexercising. I spent 2 years in different treatment centres.
And since 2012 i have been declared healthy from my eating disorder.

I have been blogging for 7 years, and my whole journey is written in my posts. I now represent healthy and happiness. I want to show anyone struggling that it is possible to recover, no matter how hard it may seem.

I now blog about recovery, my life, veganism and positivity!

If you have any questions leave them in the comment section as i am much quicker at answering there, otherwise you can always send an email:

Cant i just be healthy?

I just want to be healthy now.
   Im tired of being sick. i just want to be able to live my life now. stop being in hospital.

How many years have i just been a shadow? How many years has Ana taken from me? How many more?
   I dont want to live like this, and im really fighting....but its taking too long.

Why does the way out have to be so long and treacherous?

Cant i jsut wake up tomorrow, walk right of HDV and be healthy forever?

I was pretty when i was healthy. when i was normal.  i had a life. i had friends. i ate food. i enjoyed food. i didnt think about weight or calories. i had fun. i had boyfriends. My life was good. (Well better then now.. maybe not amazing?)


  1. Du har kämpat hårt i två veckor Izzy och om jag kunde göra dig frisk på två veckor så skulle jag göra det, men det kan jag inte. Det tar tid att bli frisk och man får inte ha för bråttom. Det tog ju tid att bli sjuk, eller hur?
    För varje dag du kämpar är du ett steg närmare den där friheten du söker. Glöm inte det! :)

  2. First I love the new title of your blog! I wish I could get better overnight too but unfortunately this illness takes time to heal like all wounds. But just remember the end is worth the long journey. Love the pictures btw.

    I always look back at old pictures of me eating without a care in the world and long to be there. With determination we'll get there again some day :)
