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!

Answers part 2

I know its taking such time to answer all the questions, but im slowly working my way through them :) I thought i would have more time to answer them!

would you ever kill someone?
I dont know whether i should answer this online or not, hahaha :) But my answer is no, i dont think i could kill someone. Not even in self defence... but if someone were to attack me i would fight back!! I am strong so i am pretty sure i would do well, but im also fast so i could run away. :)

would you ever date someone for money`?
No, never. I wouldnt marry someone just for their money... and if someone were to give me say 1000 to date someone i would still say no... unless i really like the person then its a win-win situation really :)

would you want to meet your readers? have you ever met any of your readers? 
Yes i would :) Though i am pretty sure i am different in real life than how i seem on my blog? And i havent met any of my readers... or i mean, i have had people in Sweden email me and tell me they saw me in town or the cinema but didnt dare come up to me. Both creepy but also nice. So i mean if you do see me and you read my blog, dont be scared to say hi :) Though i can act very surprised as well... Someone recognizing you in real life from your blog, that would be a little weird!
  I once thought about having a blog get together here in Sweden - with my swedish followers, but i dnot really know if thats for me. If you do live in Sweden and want to meet me, then email me and we can talk :)

do your family know you blog?'
Yes :) Whether they read my blog or not i dont know. 

What do you think of the paleo diet?
I dont really have so much opinion on it. I have heard that if you have IBS its supposed to be a good diet to follow... but i still think its a little restrictive with no grains, dairy, coffee (How can you live without coffee??!), processed etc so its not for me. And i think if youare in recovery or just recovered stay away from diets like paleo, IF, raw food, IIFYM etc etc you can try those things later but when you are newly recovered or still in recovery its good to not have any restrictions on what you can or cant eat.

I know you said you're not so much into partying and stuff, but does Tomorrowland fall into the same category for you - if you know it ofc ?
I would actually like to go to Tomorrowland. One of my friends was talking about going there and it seems fun... but at the same time, im not so much into camping.( If thats what you have to do there, im uncertain!) Has anyone been to tomorrowland? Is it good?

 What are the things that are the most successful at freeing your mind, beside your morning walks ?
Running, working out, writing, baking. Things like just listening to music or talking or just resting dont work for me... i just spend too much time thinking. But when im doing something physical or with my hands then i dont think so much and i feel less stressed and worried :)

 Who would be the one person who inspires/d you the most ? 
When i was in recovery it was my sister who was my inspiration. She was healthy, had a great body, happy, living her life and that was what i wanted. So she inspired me!!
   Who inspires me now.... I would have to say Amanda. I love her blog and her IG and she is just such a sweet girl. And she has come so far :)

A tricky one - might be weird to answer so just skip it if you want - do you think that if your actual you could meet the you from like 3 years ago, could she show/convince her of the danger she was gonna face and turn things around ?
 This is a tricky question. If im honest... i dont know if it would have helped. I might several girls who had recovered when i was sick but that didnt help or motivate me. It almost made me feel more depressed because i thought, im never going to be like them. Im never going to be healthy so whats the point of listening to them.
  If i had met my future self, met the me now... i dont know how i would have reacted or how i would have thought. It also depends what stage in recovery i was in. If i met the me now when i was very very sick and not at all ready to recover then i dont think it would have made much of an impact. But maybe if i were to tell the old me everything i went through and how i still came out the other side and tell the old me how i live my life now. Then i think it could have made a difference. But once again, its so hard to answer :) For me, i had to find my own motivation and will power to recover. It wasnt enough for people to tell me i was underweight or sick or needed help. It didnt matter if people told me it would get better, i needed to want to recover for myself.

  1. Thank you for answering :) I've never been to Tomorrowland either so I can't say it's good from experience but many friends of mine went and now I just want to go so bad, it has to be awesome. - C.
