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:

Daisy's birthday and a surprise for me!

Today is Daisy's 6th birthday... My gosh, she is getting so old!! :) I remember when she was just a puppy!

^My pink hair in the background

^^Bad quality, but that photo was taken the day after we bought her :) It was love at first sight, depsite the fleas :)
I could hold her in my hands and she qould fall asleep there! She was so small she couldnt even jump up onto the sofa.
 She has since then grown so much.

Such a silly dog :)

We have as a tradition that on Daisys birthday we give her some type of treat... one year it was meatball, another year it was pate, another year it was burgers and this year sausage... If im honest, i dont think it's such a good thing. Not for her stomach anyway, im sure her tastebuds love it. But we give her only a little amount... so iguess its ok :)
  A way of celebrating her, even if she doesn't know why!


After we had given Daisy her treat and she was looking super happy, suddenly my step dad comes out holding this huge box for me....
I am super confused, i thought it was some big toy for Daisy. And when i look at the package im like, Thats not a dog toy? And then i realise... its a computer. The computer i wished for my birthday. A school computer!
My mum, step dad, sister and even my dad had all chipped in to buy it for me as an early present!!!
My sister took pictures of me as i recieved the package and they are hilarious to look at... to see my expression, how it goes from confusion to happiness!!
Though i dont feel like publishing them as my family are in the pictures, and well... im not looking blog photo good ;) haha

I am SOOO happy. This will make it so much easier for me in school as almost all our school work is online and also so many essays and assignments. It will make it easier for me to just go to a library or to sit in school, and it will also make it easier for me to answer emails ;)
This computer is solely for school work and is perfect.
It was such a surprise for me as i was planning on trying to buy it for myself.. wanting to be independant, though i had asked for a little help from my mum. But she had thought it would be a good present :)
And it really is!

It was such a lovely and unexpected surprise! :)
Makes me once again thankful of what a lovely and wonderful family i have :)

For now, its time to cuddle a little extra with my dog. And to spend some time with my family, eating chocolate and figuring out my new computer :)

Have a lovely evening½!
