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:

Why choose death over life?

I dont know WHY you would want to choose the left side instead of the right side.
 Why is being skinny so important? Why is sociey telling us that we need to lose weight... that we need to be super skinny. Why are we told that skinniness = better, prettier? Thats not the truth. Everyone is beautiful, no matter what their size... Big or small, it doesnt matter. However... being an unhealthy weight is NOT beautiful. It shouldnt be something that is wanted or people strive after.
Caught in a vicious cycle of bad habits, a mental battle and never ending guilt and anxiety. Why give up your energy, your life, your health.... all for what? To be the skinniest? To be one stop closer to death? 

What is it you want out of your eating disorder.... what is it you are looking for? Because i can tell you... you wont get it from an illness. An illness which kills many people each year... do you want to be part of that statistic? Or do you want to be part of the statistic where it shows that recovery is possible, that actually you can be really happy and live a healthy life after having an eating disorder. That you are strong enough to over come the little voice screaming at you inside your head.

Why choose illness, death, starvation over happy, healthy, energy and life?
