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!

  2. Sounds like you had a nice day :) That's really great :) I love all your pictures from today!!! And that video was really cool, it looked fun to make. Maybe I'll try that sometime.. :)

    I'm so glad that you're getting better, it does inspire me to keep going myself a lot of the time. That there is something better on the other side of this? I've been getting glimpses of this myself, how things could be if I wasn't sick. I feel like I've been at a standstill in a crossroad this summer, or at least for the past month or so. I could either get a lot better or a lot worse right now. Choosing the better path, I would actually have a really good chance at recovering completely, but it definitely would be hard. And the other way.. I could easily get a lot worse at the moment, with starting school in (aaaahhh) a day and all. So I really don't know what I'm going to do, and what I want to do, I'm just deciding to take things day by day and see how it goes. I've been having many thoughts lately about telling someone about my anorexia, finally taking that step that would force me to recover. But I'm not sure about that, I haven't done it yet and I'm not sure if I ever will.

    Anyways, I've had a pretty bad day today. I had to finish one really boring book and I still have another entire book to read, both for my english class. That has been really stressful. I went out to get new shoes though, that was fun :) even though they're just running shoes hehe- new shoes area always fun :) And then my dad suggested we go out for lunch, we were planning on going to this one place that I was happy to be going to because I know it well and I know what I would get and they have a calorie menu that they normally hand out with the other menus so I already knew how much I was going to eat. But then all of a sudden they decided to go to this other place instead, which I was mad about because I'd never been there and it stresses me out when plans suddenly change like that. Usually I would be excited to go there because it's a fancy expensive place in downtown.. hehe. But this time I was just stressed out. Our food ended up being really bad actually, the things we ordered weren't very good. My parents said the dinners there are much better than the lunches, they've been there before but only at night. So that was an overall bad experience. And then at home, I was just getting stressed out because of school and reading, and I still had to practice flute. So mum and I went for a quick swim to relax, which was nice, but then I got home and started to practice flute, ended up crying for an hour because I sounded bad from not practicing two weeks (no time with orchestra and band camp) and because of all the stress. So that basically ruined my whole evening, I'm really nervous for my lesson tomorrow, and I have an important audition next week, hopefully I'll be able to get back on track in time. But then after I relaxed from my freakout, I was able to practice for an hour, from 10-11 pm. Pretty late for practicing, but it went pretty well after I calmed down.

    So that was my bad day.. :/ I'm so stressed out at the moment, but hopefully things will get better soon? Well, now I'm going to read the first couple chapters of my last summer reading book, get started so I don't freak out too much about it tomorrow :) Hope things continue to go well with you :)
