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!

Fun fact about me!

Did you know - most probably not - but my real name isn't actually Izzy :) It's just my nick name.
  However I pretty much only use Izzy. My friends call me Izzy (infact i have loads of nicknames ;)) and even some of my teachers call me that.  I guess they've heard my friends call me Izzy.
   And even on Facebook my name is Izzy. ... so many presume that that Is my actual name.
   I dont actually like my real name - Isabelle. It's like if people call me that i dont react,  and i can even get  disgusted when people call me it? Don't even ask me why!!!
When I was little my mum used to call me issi. And then in Ireland my best friends heard my mum call me issi and she started calling me Izzy. ... and then it just sort of stuck! My family call me Izzy as well, and that's pretty much the name i use and write as my name. Apart from on official documents of course :)
