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!

Answers:

do you like editing the puictures you take, too, or do you just like to photograph?
  Normally i dont actually edit my photos.... its just once or twice, i need to like fix the lighting or something... but usually im too lazy. i used to spend loads of time editing photos.. now its, take the photo. Upload the photo :)

another question, how is eating at school for you? what i mean is that girls tend to complain about their weight etc, etc and say all sorts of stupid stuff. maybe you know what i mean. i find it very irritating to have to listen to all that and i'd much rather go sit somewhere else but well you don' want to be antisocial either...... does it ever bother you?
  Thank you for asking :) It's going well... you might not have noticed, but im not complaining about the school food? I did alot last year... that was cus the school food was horrible, in my school now... its really good. Im surprised, everyone actually likes it. You can choose from meat, fish or vegetarian!! Ive even taken seconds sometimes as well :)
  My worst problem with school and eating was how self conscious i was, i hated eating infront of people.. it felt like everyone was looking at me... but now, i dont feel like that. It would be more weird if i didnt eat..!!
  So far, no one has actually talked about calories, weight or dieting at the lunch table... which is a relief. Because it did happen a few tiems at my previous school, and i hated it... i wanted to talk away, or tell them to shut up.
  I used to also find it annoying when people left food on their plate... but now it doesnt bother me. Because it happens when i dont like the food, or took to much and cant eat it all... and im not embarrassed to say i want more aswell. :) So its all good.
  It can be hard though when people start talking about dieting and wieght loss or complaining about their weight, when you're sitting there, eating.. but its something that does happen in life, and you cant control it. You just have to know, that you need the food. Yeah, maybe they are 5kg over weight... or need to lose some weight... but thats not your problem, that doesnt mean you have to lose weight aswell...
 
What a.cute dog!!! How old is he/she?
  She is 3 years old, soon turning four!! I love her loads :)

this is going to sound strange but my friend is anorexic and she told me at night she eats crackers or little food without now one knowing its not much but she said its like her little seceret did you ever do that but weird she told me i told her and asked why she said i dont know is it common for anorexics to eat secretly even though its low calorie food
  Yeah, while i was sick i did night eat sometimes... that was mainly because lying in bed, starving was the worst thing i knew.... i couldnt sleep with my stomach hurting from hunger. So then i would eat something low calorie, for me... it was like half an apple or a few pieces of cereal or a rice cake... which really didnt do much...
  For some anorexics, they eat privately because they dont want anyone to see them eat... and because they get so much anxiety when they eat they eat light foods. and at night, when no  one can see them eat...  It is common to eat in secret though. Sometimes i sat there with my friends, during lunch and told them that i had already eaten, and then afterwards i would go to the bathroom, stand in a sall and eat a few carrot sticks, or a rice cake or soemthing... i didnt want people to see me eat. That was the worst....
  It is part of an ED, not everyone does it... but some people who are sick do.

how come you'd rather adopt?
  I either get judged or get given weird looks when i say that id like to adopt.. i dont want my own kids... i dont even know if i can have kids anyway.
  But im not into the whole 'prgnany thing' nah... not really. And im not such a kids-person... i can find them rather annoying .But at the same time, being old with no children or grandchildren.. . thats kinda sad.
  Id like to adopt a chinese kid... :)

Even though.. ever since i learned about kids and how they were made and all that, ive wanted twins... not so sure why. I just have... so we'll see what happens in the future, but having my own kids isnt the first thing on my list to do!! hahahXD
