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!

“25 things i wish i realized while i was still in highschool”

25 things i wish i realized while i was still in highschool
  1. That zit on your cheek literally does not matter
  2. Skipping class one time will not ruin your entire life
  3. The boy you’re trying so hard to impress will mean nothing to you in a year
  4. Bring coffee to school and ignore people who make fun of it
  5. Bring a snack, too. Don’t care if people hear you eating in class.
  6. Being popular isn’t and will never be something that seriously defines who you are
  7. Appreciate your teachers
  8. Doing/not doing drugs doesn’t make you cooler than anyone else.
  9. Neither does drinking
  10. Talk to the kid sitting alone; even though it may not change your life it could drastically change theirs
  11. Participate in school events
  12. Wear sweatpants everyday
  13. Or wear a dress everyday
  14. Wear whatever makes you comfortable
  15. Nobody will laugh at you if you sit alone at your lunch table for five minutes
  16. Utilize the library
  17. Don’t wait 20 minutes to text someone back just to seem cool
  18. Tell your friends how much you love them
  19. Cherish your free textbooks… seriously
  20. Help confused freshmen, be nice to them. Remember how much you would have appreciated it a couple years ago
  21. Compliment the other girls in the bathroom
  22. That fight you had with your mom really isn’t that big of a deal
  23. It’s okay to cry
  24. Don’t let your desire for a romantic relationship stop you from forming platonic relationships
  25. Remember that life does go on
(I couldnt find the source for this text... but i didnt write it ;);)) But its GREAT advice... infact some of these i wish i had remembered/told myself before. 

I used to be SOOO scared of sitting alone at a lunch table if say my friends were going to get something to eat or get some water. Also... those spots you see on your face... nobody else sees them!! And nobody really cares what you wear - not unless you are going to some super prestigious schoool where fashion is more important than school work. Focus on school, focus on your grades. But dont panic if you oversleep one day or you need a mental health day and decide to skip a day of school... we've all been there, we've all had to do it. Also remember... school isnt forever, one of the most forgotten things when youa re in school. Its easy to feel like you will sit behind a school bench forever... that you will never be able to liv your life the way you want. But i am sure, once you are done with school you will miss it. The comfort of the routine, schedule, teachers and friends you see everyday. Once you are on your own, there is no timetable, schedule, people you know you can go to..... So do try to make memories and cherish the time you have in school. If you hate it, its not forever if you love it... great, but also know that things will eventually change!
