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!

A 3 hour bus ride awaits..

Sitting on the bus, waiting for the 3 hour ride that awaits.  But ive got magazines. A HUGE pepsi max and fruit to keep me going.

At the moment I am filled with anxiety and just want to dissappear. I want to go back to Sweden. Sleep in my own bed. Eat swedish food (im sorry for offending all UK/irish people) but actually I dont like irish food.    Maybe its just from when I was sick.. that I have built up this thing that I hate the food... but I dont know.
   And I hate the lack od routine .... and memories from when I was sick are flooding back.... :/ but I am just going to stay calm. Listen to music amd focus on other things. And rekind myself that its only 4 days I have to be here....


  1. I know,right? It's so awful when you have to give up on your stereotype for a couple of days, but you can make it :) I have this anxiety on every roadtrip.. try to focus on good things, and that 4 days are nothing. xx

  2. You're stronger for going back to Ireland, rather than staying at home in Sweden. You have to overcome your past & by going to where it all started is the best way to do it. You also have to remember its where your dad lives & a close friend of yours (am I right? I'm unsure). I'm sure they'd both be upset to know you hate going to see them because of the country they live in. You need to overcome your past, otherwise you'll never move on. You're stronger than this. Also, maybe you should talk to your dad & friend about this & the food. That way, to help, they can change around whatever's for dinner. Communication is key. But, remember, you must be able to accept the past & move on. Don't let it stop you from wanting to visit family & friends.
