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!

Yesterday night

So i guess some of you are curious as to how it went last night......?  

Weeellllllllll...... It went well i think?! hahaha. How does one determine if it went well or not? A stomach feeling maybe. I didnt fall over, say anything stupid (not that im aware of!) or do anything stupid. I was just myself... so its a sort of take it or leave it?
   We met at the tube station and then walked to the concert. He had 2 friends there so we had to squeeze through the crowd to try to get to where they stood... and i can say, some guys are just stupid. There were numerous times where when we tried to squeeze through and they let him pass but just blocked the way for me and stood there staring at me? As if i was going to just stand there with them. So it was just to press my way forward.

The artist we went to see was Neil Young and Crazy horse. When i listened to them beforehand, it wasnt my type of music. But i guess my motivation for going wasnt just the concert. However, i was surprised that i enjoyed it.... the songs werent at all like i had heard on Spotify!! Though they were alot longer, songs were around 10-15 minutes.
   After an hour i felt my right knee and hip begin to hurt and i wasnt wearing the support band for my ankle so that also started throbbing so after 90 minutes i said i had to leave......... (excluded bit)

And then  it was just to fight my way through the crowd and walk through the city to the tube station with a smile on my face.
   I dont want to say too much at the moment as it feels like right now its just a spark. But whether that spark gets air to ignite or just dies out, i dont know. But i have a good stomach feeling... but at the same time, i dont want to be writing on my blog a few days from now or 2 weeks from now with tears in my eyes. So yup.... for now, i guess ill keep all this on the law loy until i know anything myself :)
