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:

Would you like to take part in a documentary about eating disorders and body image?

I got asked if i wanted to participate in a documentary about eating disorders and body image, however i personally feel i dont really want a camera following me around, even if i do have alot to say about the topics. But i said that i could spread the information on my blog and see if maybe one of my readers in Europe would like to participate in the documentary.

The details are below and you can get in contact with the journalist if you wish to participate :) (If you do, send me an email as well as i would love to know if someone wants to take part!)

I am a TV journalist with Deutsche Welle (DW), Germany's international public broadcaster, and I work for a multi-media documentary show called "Life Links" that is aimed at a young audience and that focuses on young people in the show, too. In each episode, our reporters meet three people in different parts of the world who face a conflict in one area of life (family, work, education, religion etc.).

Here you can get an impression of our show:

In one of our upcoming shows, we will deal with the issue of body image. For this, we would like to meet with one young man or woman (18-30 years of age) who is suffering from anorexia, who is currently undergoing treatment or who has suffered from anorexia in the past few years. Basically, we are looking for somebody from Europe (outside Germany) who is comfortable being filmed in their everyday life and answering questions about their life, their condition and issues surrounding their body image on camera. We are looking to film for three to four days at the end of January.

Unfortunately, we cannot offer compensation, but the chance to be part of a show that aims to depict young people's realities beyond stereotypes.
