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:

  1. Hi Izzy,

    I know that you have already written about this, but I was wondering if you could write again about introversion. I am at the end of my recovery and expected that now that my thoughts and behaviours are no longer as restricted by food and my ED, I would all the time want to be with friends, going out etc, and the truth is, I am perfectly happy reading a book or watching a film and being on my own just thinking...I feel like I am not meant to be like this. I have lots of friends and enjoy being with them, but I find myself panicking if I have a day jam packed full of things that involve people, and I find that the last thing I want to do is go out in the evening to a club packed full of people etc...I would much rather stay at home and watch a film with friends etc. However, I feel embarrassed and guilty about this. I thought for so long that it was due to me ED that I liked to stay in etc, but I think it is because I am an introvert, because I do enjoy being with people, I do, I just like my quiet time too. However, I am having trouble accepting this, and people always ask me 'why aren't you going out tonight', and someone even went as far to say that I was boring. This really hurt me, and I feel like sometimes I just go out to please people and feel 'normal', when I'm not actually gaining anything from being out. My friends say that I'm fun to be with, and I am quite loud, and have a big personality, I'm just struggling to accept myself xx
