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!

Starting the day off right

Last night i tossed and turned in bed and couldnt fall asleep... i watched as the minutes ticked by, not feeling tired at all. Though only 20 minutes ago i had been falling asleep while watching a series. I ended up scrolling through Tumblr for an hour, then i decided to download a book for my Kindle but it was uncharged so i couldnt do that. I continued to toss and turn.... too warm with the blanket on, my bed too hard. I just felt like going out and sitting on the balcony, but as i thought that thought it began raining.
   I wasnt the only one who got little sleep last night. I heard both my mum and sister get up several times, whether to get get water, go to the bathroom or just because they couldnt sleep. My step dad was the only one who seemed to sleep super last night, he was also the only one who was super cheery this morning!

^^Usually im cheery in the morning, however i was a bit like this today!! haha No, i wasnt that tired!! After my morning coffee i put on my walking clothes, a podcast in my ears and out with my dog!

This evening i am going to meet F - the guy i worked with last week... we're going to meet up, go to a photography museum and later take a glass of wine or something ;) I feel super mature just thinking about it? hahaha. Wine and alcohol arent really my things, really im not supposed to drink either as i have a high value on my liver.... i think its from my medications so i need to be careful with drinking alcohol, but also im such a lightweight :) But i dont think one glass or two would do so much harm! But ill see what i feel like when im there. :)

Now time to get ready for the day!


  1. I have a reason why maybe you and your sister and Mum didn't sleep well last night! At the moment it's around full moon time, and when it's a full moon people tend to struggle to get to sleep. I believe this is because the sky is more lit up, so it messes with the melatonin hormone in the body. Women are more sensitive to this so that could be why your stepdad wasn't affected.
    Have a great time tonight! :D xx

    1. I was thinking it was something like that!! :)

  2. Good luck for the evening! (A day of few words for me, apparently..) :--)

  3. I couldn't sleep last night too ;)
