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:

FAQ and before emailing

I have just spent 2 hours updating my FAQ (Frequently asked questions) where hopefully there should be answers to most of your questions. If not... just comment :)

You can find it HERE

This is to help YOU. So that you can get the advice and help you need quicker, but also to save me from having to reply to 10 emails all asking the same/similar questions each day.

So as well as updating my FAQ i have also made a Before emailing me page. This is to save me time because at the moment i just dont have the time to answer all emails. And this does make me feel guilty, but at the same time i do know that alot of information and advice can already be found on my blog.
  I dont mind answering emails or answering questions and such but at times it can be overwhelming with the amount of text, questions and life stories i have to read everyday.

So please read this before emailing me :) This is for BOTH yours and mine sake!!

I love helping people and answering all of your questions and emails. However, blogging and replying to emails is what i do in my free time and i do not get any compensation for it. It is something i do because i want to.
   At the moment though i do not have enough time to answer emails as i get between 10-20 emails everyday. Many of the emails also have the same type of question and the answer can already be found on my blog.

So before emailing me with A QUESTION then.

1) Check my FAQ HERE
2) If you cant find an answer there then use my search button
3) You can comment either on my FAQ or on my most recent post about a question you have (and tick - notify me when i get a response)

If you have done all of that and havent found what you are looking for - to a question - then email me and it would be great if you could write in the subject line so that i know what the email is about :)

Also it is help to ME if the email is not way too long as i already have a lot to read with my studies each day.-

I am not writing this to be rude, so please dont take it this way. This is merely a way to save me time, for you to find your answer and help quciker and so that i can respond to emails quicker. :)

If you are emailing for other reasons then feel free to send an email right away and i should respond within 1-5 days. If you havent gotten a response within 5-7 days then resend the email.
