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!

Alternatives to self harm, and things to do when you have anxiety


^^When you have anxiety, or feel you want to self harm. These are good thigns to do, to take your mind off the anxiety..

And ive also heard about the butterfly project, where when you want to self harm you draw a butterfly on the place where you want to self harm... and then i think its that you leave the butterfly there or something..? not so sure.
  There is also the you write on your arm/leg, some write the bad negative things on their body... but i would say, try to write good things about your body instead.
 And write the negative things on a piece of paper, and then burn that piece of paper... or rip it into hundreds of pieces!!
 
I actually find that sometimes when i have anxiety, and find it hard to get the words, or know what i am feeling, i have a habit of tearing up paper... into small small pieces... like i can go through 4 or 5 A4 pages... it usually helps with my anxiety as i focus on something else... writing lists or going for walks helps as well :)

So when you have anxiety... tyr something else!!!
