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: email@example.com

Its Saturday morning at 6.50am and im just after eating a filling breakfast(picture above) before i am about to go to the place where the exams will be held.
You would think im nervous but not really..... the exams im taking today are ones where if you do badly then it doesnt really matter and if you do good - or get an above average score it can help you get into university. I.e if you are on a waiting list and you have a good score from these tests you are more likely to get in, and not actually be on the waiting list.
I do have good grades in school so i am sure i will get into university with them anyway, but this is just a sort of back up incase....
The tests consist of hard maths equations, swedish reading & writing, swedish words (i.e knowing synonyms to words) and english comprehension.... the only part that i am not so worried about is the english, but who knows... maybe im better at the Swedish. Though the fact that people who have lived in Sweden their whole life and grown up studying swedish struggle with the Swedish part says alot... Ive only really been writing and reading in swedish since 2011/2012 and my grammar still isnt that great.
But luckily you dont get a grade, you get a score... so the average is around 0.9 i think and the top score is 2.0. Where i will land from 0-2 i dont know, but as its my first time im not expecting much. You can do these tests 2 times per year so basically you can just keep doing them to see if you improve, but just like national exams there is not really so much you can study for.... as the questions always change. And the questions can be about anything, i mean with the maths i might not even have done all the maths equations and methods needed to solve the problems, but hopefully i have :)
These tests are more like a challenge for myself... to see if i can do it. :)
I will be gone all day but i have scheduled posts to read :) So hope you all have a lovely day!
