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!

I think i've answered all your questions now, though i could have missed a question, if i have just let me know and i'll try answering it :)

 if you got three wishes, what would they be?

I find it so hard to answer these types of questions because i could be super materialistic and say, i want more money(become a millionaire), my own apartment and a lifetime supply of questbars.
Or i could say That a cure for CF is found THIS year, no one will ever have any type of eating disorder and that there would never be any more wars.

So there's two sides of me, and its hard to decide which side of me wins... though the second round of wishes really is the better thing ;) because really... do i actually need to be a millionaire?

 What languages do you speak? 

English and Swedish fluently (though at times you wouldn't think it!!!) and then ive studied Irish for 10 years and French for about 4-5 years, though im not good at either.

What's your favourite subject at school?
This is so hard to answer, though i've always loved science and im good at maths. So im happy that im doing science this year :)

 What countries would you like to visit? :)
 Different states in the U.S :) L.A, Florida, California, San Francisco etc, Hawaii, Germany, Norway, Italy (the parts i haven't been to), France (the places i haven't been to), Norway etc
  I'm sure i've missed many countries which i want to travel to on this list.
What do you think about PewDiePie?
 Hahah, I don't really watch his videos. But a few of my friends do so if they sit and watch his videos during breaks ill watch as well. I wouldn't say i love him and i wouldn't say i hate him. But i mean, he's YouTube famous for a reason :) Even though he's Swedish, he's not one of the first Swedish 'famous' people i would think of ;)
  • 6. Would you like things to go ‘back to normal’ with a certain someone?
  • My best friend in Ireland. Sometimes i want to move back to Ireland just so that we can go back to normal where we talk everyday, talk on the phone hours each week, do things together and have that best friend relationship again. Now we have more of a long distance- try to skype when we have time - best friend relationship. We both have quite busy lives and if it's not one thing, then it's the other that stops us form skyping or having more than 30 minutes to talk... 
  •    Though i know she's still there for me and if i would ever need to talk about anything or need help or advice she would be the first person to step up. Or one of the first people i know i could go to. But it's hard to be so far away and not have that 'everyday' relationship.
  • 37. Did you lose friends when you started dating someone?
  • Nope ;) Ive only been with like....3 guys and none of them were serious anyway!
  • 57. Would you change yourself for the person you love?
  • I would change for the better, yes. Such as if he were to tell me that i was too sarcastic then i would make a 95% effort to change that. But i mean, change my personality or my looks.. i don't think i would do that. Not if it was only his opinion and choice anyway. If it was something i had been thinking about and he mentions etc then i might change. Or if i know that its a positive change, that it would help or make me a better person :)
  • 65. Do you have a good relationship with your parents?
  • Yes. I mean of course i have my silly fights with my mum but it hasn't been anything serious since 2011 or so... I'm not someone who likes arguing or fighting, it gives me alot of anxiety so i easily make peace and just back down from arguing with family or friends. Though as i so easily solve the actual problem and stop the argument people rarely argue with me... i guess they don't see the point, or maybe it's just that it doesn't even reach the stage of argument.
  •   But onto my relationship... i used to be closer with my dad but since we moved i've now become closer with my mum. She would be the first person i would go talk to if there was a crisis and i know she's always there for me. But i'm also very independent meaning that i don't feel i need so much support.
  • With my dad, we have alot of communication online and that feels good. Hearing about his day and his life and he gets to hear about my day and my life... so we're still connected, even if we're so far apart!
If you have any more questions, just ask :)


  1. My best friend transferred to another school 5 years ago. We're stiil friends and call each other sometimes, but it's not the same. Even though we lived in the same city we hardly ever saw each other because we lived far apart and were really busy. But also it's a bit hard when you haven't seen a person in a while to just get together. But I know I can tell her absolutely anything and act like myself around her. I've known her for eight years and we've done crazy things together even after she switched schools. Now I'm hoping she'll visit me in the US.
    I hate arguments too. I'm what yhey call the peacemaker. I usually just get in stupid fights with my sisters, that's pretty much it. But we have this thing where after a heated argument, ten minutes later we're ok, like nothing happened.
    Do you wear makeup? I know you said you usually wear mascara and concealer, but you're not that into makeup. I think I've seen you wear makeup on special occasions in pictures? Any favorite brands?
    When you move out will you take Daisy with you? Or maybe you can't afford to have a dog while living on your own? I sure can't, haha! Though it's a few years till a move out of my parents house and I don't think I could afford a dog even then. Oh, I'll miss her so much!
    If you get married will you wear a white wedding dress or? Just wondering ;) and what kind of wedding would you like if you were to get married?
    Do you like cereal? Granola? Chinese food?
    Olivia :)

  2. When and why did your parents divorce?
