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:

Fun facts about me

I absaloutly hate emailing teachers.... i feel like i need to be very formal and cant have any grammar mistakes and it all needs to be very proper and formal. It's even worse when i email an english teacher, i spend more time rereading and editing my email than is necessary for the question i am asking.
   But the funny thing is, that when teachers reply they aren't that formal.They give you the answer you need and thats that.... some teachers even include smileys and such. 

I always end up putting a wink smiley face ";)" instead of a normal smiley face ":)" in pretty much everything i write. Its a typpo.... i dont mean to wink at you or make things awkward. Its just what happens when im typing fast. Luckily i dont think anyone has ever thought anything strange with it, but when texting new people i always need to be super aware that i dont end up putting wink faces on every text i send, because well.... that could send the wrong message!!! XD

When i was a child i was very creative and did alot of different things, i painted, i played with clay, i cut and designed clothes, i did make up on barbies and teddy bears, i cut the hair on barbies and Bratz, i made jewelry and lots and lots of other crafts.  But that brings me to a funny story, one day my dad brought me to this bead shop where i got to choose lots of nice beads and my dad had given me a limit, so i bought some really expensive and nice beads and i was so happy and excited. My dad then had some things to do in town so i wandered around with him and then eventually when we got to the car i realised i had dropped my bag of beads somewhere and i was so upset, but i didnt want to let it show because i felt so guilty. But my dad decided to take me back to the bead shop and buy me more beads (only the best ones this time!) and the lady in the store was so nice that she let me pick all the same beads again and we only had to pay half price!!!

When i was younger i used to do 3-5 puzzles at a time. I.e i would mix 3-5 (100-500piece) puzzles in a box and then i'd sit on the floor for the next few days while i was at home sick and start trying to put together the puzzles.... and when i was done with those, i would tear them all apart and mix together another 3-5 puzzles!!! XD

The first picture i drew was a 3D dog. (How good it was, i dont know as i was so young, but apparently it shocked my parents quite alot and they still like to bring it up!). Though somewhere during all our moving that picture got lost :(

Just some fun facts about me!!!
