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!

This little get away is going to be good. I'm not going to let ana control me. I'm going to enjoy myself and things are gonna go well. Like when we were out on the island at the start of the year. I had a really good time. I was in charge. It wasn't ana telling me to eat less. To go exercise. I did get anxiety once or twice. But I mean that's understandable. Life is so much easier. I don't have any obsessions or compulsions. There's no voice in my head telling me to go do push ups or sit ups. No voice telling me to go for long walks so I can exercise. I don't exercise or go for walksto burn calories of because there's a voice in my head telling me too. I'm free of that voice. I go for walks because I want to. Because I enjoy it. I can think. And I love taking pictures. While I was sick I would never have wanted to go to some cottage with my family. It would have. Caused too much anxiety. It would have disrupted my routines. And myfamily couldn't leave me on my own. I'm normal. I can relax, and spend time with my family. Sleep in. Eat nicefood. Lie in the sun all day. Read a book outside. To everyone who is sick. Do you really want to live a life full of routines. Where you can't travel anywhere because your routine won't be the same... or because you won't be able to exercise? What type of life is that ? To be to scared to try new food? Life needs to have a balance. Dont you want to be able to just spend a day on the beach in the sun. Eating picnic and snacking on strawberries? Let go of anorexia. The anxiety won't kill you. And in the end its worth it to go against the voice. Anorexia controls you. She doesn't let you enjoy yourself. Let go. Don't be scared. It's worth it. If I can do it. So can you.
