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!

If you have any questions leave them in the comment section as i am much quicker at answering there, otherwise you can always send an email: lifewithoutanorexia@hotmail.com

If you are a procrastinator... this message is for you

If you are someone who procrastinates, who sits and just keeps telling themselves that they will go do their work. They will leave the house, they will clean the house, do the work they are supposed to do... but you repeat that every 15 minutes. But you still come up with 99 reasons why you need to wait another hour.. and that continues until the end of the day and suddenly you start panicking, feeling stressed and get anxiety because you havent done the work you are supposed to.



Well im telling you now, To get up and do what you are supposed to do... ( First finish reading this post though... you ALWAYS have time for my blog ;))
  Think of the feeling you will get afterwards... that relief and sense of relaxation when you have done what you are supposed to do. Write a to do list of what you are supposed to do, and make a mark of those things which are most important and should be done first. Then work your way through those things... and feel the relief and the pressure leaving your shoulders when each of those items is ticked off your list.


Make it a habit to do the things you need to do at once... dont wait. Because you can leave those things you need to do as long as you want, but you still need to do them. Its like an elephant in the room, you can deny them, pretend they dont exist. But they are still there!
 
If you are struggling with school work and cant seem to study, then find a place where you can... a library, student studying area, a friends house, a cafe, a silent place in your house.... go there, plan to sit there for the time necessary. Bring snacks, bring water, shut off your mobile... and just do your work.
  Because i can promise you. When you close your laptop and books and know that you have gotten work done, even if you may not have finished... you have started. You have gotten something done. That feeling is a good feeling!!!

So no more procrastinating!!! You can continue reading my blog later when you have gotten all your work done :)

And if you have gotten your work done/have nothing to do. Here is a hug well done for you :)

  1. Random question: could you please make a post about school while having an ED. Because the combination is very tough. I don't have any concentration left and feel no energy at all(yes I'm trying to eat more but still don't have any energy). My grades are lower and I skip some lessons because I feel so tired OR I feel reaaaaally bad about my body(then i just feel ashamed of myself and all I want to be is home).I just feel tired and I don't know what to do.. This year is also my exam year and I really want to graduate:(

  2. This post made me realize that I have had no duties this weekend, none! It has been like a mini holiday and I didn't even notice :--( Haha, I guess I should just be grateful, 48 hours sanitized from pressure! That's rare.

    1. That sounds really nice :) I feel this week shouldnt be as stressful because i have gotten so much done this weekend... c.a 6+ hours of work, so yeah... not as much next week. Though there is always homework and more things to be done :(

  3. It's always easier to just do what you gotta do. I think I'm pretty good at that. But it's mostly because I want to get whatever I have to do out of the way so I can calm down and do whatever I want. But one thing that bothers me a lot is when say I'm just about to go to bed or eat or watch a movie someone tells me I need to do something real quick. I'm told I don't have to do it right away but I have to do it to get it off my chest! On the other hand I'm really good at avoiding and then forgetting things I really really don't want to do. Usually I'm then reminded by someone which sucks. Those are usually things I have to for others, not myself. So this post is pretty useful!

  4. IZZY! I was wondering, would you be ok if I sent you a letter? just to thank you and stuff, or would you rather I do it via email for security reasons?
