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!

If you have any questions leave them in the comment section as i am much quicker at answering there, otherwise you can always send an email: lifewithoutanorexia@hotmail.com

how did you lose the anxiety over food? 
It was a process of fighting the voice in my head, learning to cope with the anxiety and to face my fears. Gradually it decreased, as i learnt to be ok with eating. But also learning that eating 6 times a day, doesnt make you fat, doesnt make you instantly gain weight. Food gives you energy, its fuel .Not something that just makes you fat.
  Its being stronger than the voice in your head! Find new ways to cope with anxiety.

go to any psychologist today?
Nope, going to a psychologist doesnt work for me as i find it very difficult to talk about what is going on in my head. I prefer to write. I was made to go to a psychologist several times while i was sick, but each one (have had 3 or 4) have said that i was too sick, and they couldnt help me as i wasnt willing to talk.

 get the recurrence times?
Not sure what you mean? ;)

 how is your family over your exercise and food, they trust you? 
They completly trust me! They know i exercise because i love it, and my whole family is active. But also, im pretty much the familys PT. I train my sister, step dad and my mum wants me to train her (im also going to start being my aunts trainer ;) ) hahah. So they just like the fact that i am so active and like exercising!
   And with food, well we eat pretty much the same things, in different amounts. And somethings they eat i dont like and soemthings i eat, they dont like etc... everyone has different preferences in the family! But they know that i eat enough and eat what i enjoy!! (Thats why i hate when i get critic for what i am eating, because in the end its my family that should be caring the most. They know exactly what i eat - they are the ones who buy it - but they also see the amount i eat most of the time. They know what days i exercise etc, and they dont find it strange!!)

how old are you and are you studying or go to high school?
I go to high school, 1 more year left (had to repeat a year as i missed 2 years of school)

what are your plans for the future, will you marry and have children? 
My plans for the future are to continue studying, and to become a health coach. I dont know where i want to live and work, wheter i stay in Sweden or maybe move to NY or somewhere ;) But i know i want to help people anyway :)
   Will i marry and have children? Somedays i am all for marriage and children, other days i cant even imagine having my own children (im not the best with kids :/). But only time will tell, of course i want to be with someone i love and kids arent a complete no... but i really cant answer this right now!

Do you have menstrual still?
Yes ;)

If you have any questions, dont hesitate to ask :):)

  3. i currently suffer from severe eating disorder. i have been at a dangerously low weight for the past 8 years sometimes reaching 56lbs, im 5' 4.5' 'i eat very little and whatever i do eat i throw up even water sometimes if i feel i drank too much. everytime i try to recover i get super bloated in my hands, legs/feet, stomach, and face. my stomach bloats to a point where i cant breathe and its protruding from upper to bottom stomach. this always makes me relapse. how did you get over it?
