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: firstname.lastname@example.org

You are confined by the walls you build yourself
I saw this photo and i think its something very important to remember... you feel trapped or stuck in the same routine. Or you dont dare to do new things... this is not somebody elses fault or causing (though of course it can be someone elses fault why you built the walls aroudn you) but in the end...you've put up these walls around you.
Most people have something stopping them from doing certain things... i mean not everyone lets go so easily, lets go of their fears or does things that scare them. But actually... doing those things is nothing bad.
Sometimes you need to just break down the walls around you.
You feel you cant go out to a cafe with friends?Why? Whats stopping you... its just the voice in your head stopping you. Why not fight against that voice instead of listening to it?
You're scared of heights...Why not face the fear... climb up somewhere high and just sit there, take deep breaths. Climb to the top of a hill or moutain and face your fear of heights.
You're scared of travelling because there is a change in routine... well you wont overcome that fear by just sitting in your room/house all day. Instead book that weekend away somewhere, enjoy it. Dontn worry about routines or habits. Break free from all of those.
And ok, its easier to sit here and write this... tell everyone to break down the walls around them. Because i still have walls around me, stopping me from doing certain things. Im scared of heights and walking over bridges. But i face these fears.. i put myself in situations, no matter how horrible they feel, or the anxiety and panic bubbling up in my throat. I walk over the bridge... (or more, speed run over it due to panic) but thats one step closer to one day being fully comfortable walking over bridges. Or being up high places.
Its easier said than done, but its not impossible to do either.
