Life without Anorexia

My motto is
'Dont let the sadness of your past & the fear of your future ruin the happiness of your present'

I am a generally happy girl who loves running, going to the gym and eating food!! Though my life has been very different.
I spent 5 years sick with anorexia nervosia & purging tendencies & over exercising. I was depressed and self harmed. I spent 2 years in different treatment centres.
After alot of struggles, lots of ups and downs, suicide attempts, tears, anxiety, panic and never thinking i would be healthy.
I am now declared healthy from anorexia nervosia.

I have been blogging for 4 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 am happy and healthy and living my life. Going to school, meeting friends and trying to find myself in this world.

I write about my daily life, but also try to write posts about how it was when i was sick, advice and tips.
I am open and friendly, so dont be scared about writing a post or sending me an email at:

Mando tomorrow

Looking in my calender i suddenly  realise that tomorrow i have an appointment at Mando!! Feels strange even thinking about it. However, its my 2 year 'anniversary' check up... I.e ive been 2 years declared health (almost) (On August 16th!)
  After this appointment i only have 3 more visits i.e 1 visit every year for the next 3 years!!! I wish i could just be done now, no more check ups. But i guess it doesnt make much difference to me anyway.. i just go there, eat, answer loads of questions. Fill in loads of forms etc
  Infact that reminds me... I need to try to remember what ive eaten all day O_O 

2 things ive eaten today anyway: popcorn and chocolate covered nuts :) Hahah, she wont have to worry that i dont eat unhealthy anyway!

P.S Om det är någon som läser min blogg som är påMando och ser mig, var inte rädd att säga hej :) Jag är lite 'awkward' men också väldigt snäll (men det kanske inte ser så ut när jag är där ;))


  1. Just realised my birthday is the day you were declared healthy, what a coincidence :-D
    I think you should be careful of using 'unhealthy' to describe the food...maybe 'variety'? Though I know what you meant, i'm just being over-cautious! sorry ;-)

    1. Ohh, good point. Sorry i didnt even think about that ;) The thing is when i talk to most other people, i.e people who havent had an ED then you just refer to food as healthy or unhealthy, which i dislike... and thats why i try to avoid it here on the blog. Though i guess its also engrained in my head... the thing is, i can be like oh this food is less healthy. Who cares and eat it anyway, because the label healthy or less healthy doesnt matter so much to me, but i know it matters ALOT to others. So ill definitely think more about this in the future, thank you! :)

    2. I completely agree with you, please don't apologise! When normal people choose food, it is not unusual that they would classify food as 'healthy' or 'unhealthy' (i.e. Carrot sticks v.s. fries) but as you've said, they would not afraid to eat the food that they regard as 'unhealthy'. However since most of the readers here are ED sufferers, this would become a sensitive issue. If I was a person who had never come across ED, I would not have noticed anything sensitive in this post! You are welcome :)
