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:

Finding your place of calm

Now a days life in general is very fast paced... you are expected to do everything at once, answer every message, call and email you get right away. You need to be at 5 different places at the same time, you have deadlines, dates to remember and important meetings to go to. With all the rushing every where, having to do so much everyday, or feeling like you need to do much even if that may not be the case it can lead to feelings of being overwhelmed. Feelings of panic and can even lead to burning out if you do too much at once.

It is important to find a place of serenity, of calm and peace within yourself. To take a few moments each day to just try to disconnect with everything going on in life and in your head.

You can do this in different ways, such as yoga, meditation, sitting quietly somewhere where its quiet and not so messy. Reading or writing. Listening to calming music or even an audio book. So im people find it meditative to just sit and draw.

Doing these types of actions, where you try to not think so much, not try to analyze or solve a solution or worry about whats happening tomorrow or later today. But to just disconnect from those thoughts, it can be hard. I am an overthinker and over analyzer, so i like to think and analyze things. But by learning to take a few moments each day where i try to not worry about those things in my head, not feel stressed or panicked about whats going on in my head. But just breathing.

Having this skill or being able to cope and de stress in hectic or stressful situations is very valuable and its great for everyone to work on. But in recovery it will be very helpful if you can learn to try to disconnect your panic and to just breathe and think rationally when it comes to tough situations.

So this is something you can all have as a goal to work on :)
