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:

Things will get better

This is just a reminder to say that, It might be tough now, but it can get better. I promise you!! Sometimes it gets worse before it gets better, but if you give up now you will never know whats around the corner.
  Remember that this is YOUR fight to fight. No one else can do it for you... its in your head, however people CAN support you. And you have to let them support you. Dont push people away, being alone and isolated isnt good for anyone, right now you need people to motivate and support you.

Never give up. Giving up shouldnt be an option... you have to keep fighting the bad times. Life is like a rollercoaster, lots of ups and downs and you cant control that... you just have to go with it. There will come a time when you can look back at this time in your life and reflect over it, realise how far you have come... or maybe you realise that actually for the past 5 years you've been in the same situation because you have been too scared to make a change. So why not make the change NOW, instead of waiting another few weeks, months or years?
   We all deserve to be happy, to live a life we love. For some people that craves more fighting through the tough times, others seem to live more of a free and happy life with less bad times. But everyone is different, different lives.
    Just never give up, this is a reminder for you to all keep fighting. Fight the voice in your head. Fight the anxiety. Fight the guilt. Fight the panic, take one step closer to healthy, no matter what illness you are suffering from. Or maybe you arent suffering from an ilness at all, but you have just broken up with your partner or failed an important test. Then know that things will get better, you just need to keep moving forward and keep your head high! :)
