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!

I can not wait until my maths test is over tomorrow. My brain and thougths are like mush at the moment. My eyes hurt, i feel very slow and heavy... my head is pounding.
  Too much maths, too much concentration, too much studying. Though in all honesty, half of the time i have just been procrastinating..... But i guess thats part of it.

Am i feeling confident for the test tomorrow? Not at all. But i just feel that no amount of studying would make me feel confident. I just feel that its too much to learn, to memorize, however i know that i have worked my ass off with all the maths studying, and that i should atleast pass.... and aiming for atleast a C (as an A is almost impossible in these maths tests).

Half way through my studying when i felt i needed a break i got up and made a quick chocolate cake (takes like 25 minutes in total - from start to baked!)
  I wasnt really craving  chocolate cake - more that i wanted somethign to do. But you have to taste what you bake!! And it was delicious, though a bit too sweet for my liking.

This evening i have no plans, im feeling really tired. Mentally tired, though physically i have so much enegry and all i want to do is go to the gym. But its important to give my body a break as well. And considering how tired i am mentally at the moment, i think i would do one push up and then collapse! haha

Tomorrow there will be a huge weight off my shoulders!! Though, its just to start studying for the next test after this... But lets just take one thing at a time!


  1. Hang in there, Iz.
    So you have that A-F -rating in Sweden? It seems like Finland is the only country with the grades of ten to four. How do you count and announce your gpa?

    1. Thank you :)
      Yeah we have the A-F with all the different knowledge requirements... infact, i dont like the gradiing system here in Sweden. In Ireland we had A-F but it was from the % on tests, here in sweden you have to fullfil certain requirments.

      Well you get a certain amount of points for the program you go, and then i think you get better points the better grade you have.... But i could be wrong :)

  2. You are so hardworking, i wish i could be more like you in that way. I have no motivation and so much to do.
    Good luck with the test!

    1. Thank you!!
      Well its just to focus on your goals, and to atleast try. Make a plan of when you will study and how long and try to stick with it. Somedays are tougher, but its all about routine!

  3. You are so dedicated, in your studies, yourself, and your blog! You are incredible. :]

    And the cake looks good, even if you said it's pretty sweet. It must have been fun to make, though. :D

    1. Thank you :)
      I havent been baking in a while - no time or motivation. So it was fun to just make something quickly... get my baking creativity going! :)

  4. what is the cake recipe? i love sweet things! hehehe :D
