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!

A reminder to all sufferers

Let’s get something straight:
Nobody admires you for being anorexic,
That’s just the voice in your head.
They will not applaud you,
Or think of you as ‘controlled’, or
‘tragically beautiful’.
They will not envy you,
They do not see your slow suicide
As admirable.
Anorexia does not make you special,
Different or unique.
Your laughter, your passions,
Your smile, are why people love you.
They do not love anorexia,
They love you, and though the voice says
Without it you are nothing.
I promise, without anorexia
You are everything.
Recovery is a choice,
And it means you have to fight.
Eat, even when anorexia is screaming
At you to stop.
Recovery is learning,
That you are admirable without being thin,
That you are interesting without anorexia,
That you are worth more than a life
With a demon in your head, who
Wants to kill you.
You are perfect, and you do not
Need this disease, to make you
Feel worthy of life.
Please, do not
Put your trust in Anorexia Nervosa,
You are worth
So much more.

  1. Oh my god this is so true and it brought tears into my eyes even though I am outside waiting for the underground which is a bit embarrassing right now but who cares it just touched me so damn much and helps me to keep fighting :3

    Thank you~~

  2. During the night at some point I was half asleep, half awake and I felt this burst of desperation. Like I HAD to go back, that I HAD to restrict all if a sudden. They are becoming rarer but what scared me was that it was when I was somewhat unconscious. I couldn't control my mind, like in a dream. It was like some evil power found it's way into me and I couldn't do anything about it. Maybe it sounds silly, it's hard to explain. When I woke up I dismissed those thoughts and ate anyway. And this reminder really helps knowing I did the right thing. Thank you!
