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:

Birthdays... ive always hated them even when i was younger. For most of my life i would end up sitting and crying/being sad or just avoiding everyone in my room. I hated birthday parties.. i hated having the focus on me. And that still sort of remains, i dont like being in the spotlight.
  But today my family have agreed to give me an hour in the morning where i can just eat breakfast, get ready etc and then they're going to bring me cake :) And then im going to my favourite place - the gym and then brunch with my family :):)
  Sounds like a super day and birthday to me :):)

And just because its my birthday..... some photos from the past year ;)

Time to stop being ego-istic, hahahah, and start to get ready for my day!!! :)

Have a lovely Sunday everyone and dont forget, its the first of advent today as well!
