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: email@example.com

New week, new goals, new chances
Once again, the days have passed and the weekend is over and time for a new week. Its funny how i can feel tired of doing nothing... This weekend hasnt been super active but i still feel quite tired or i think its more, i feel so relaxed that my mind has sort of shut off and wants to just take a break for a week now. Though i am sure once i get to school, open my school documents and look at my list of things to do i will get back into school focus and school mode.
It has been extremely nice to not focus on school or stress at all this weekend, just relaxed, known that i have done what i should have (mostly) during the week and that i got a little bit of work done both on Saturday and Sunday.
If you are like me and stress over things unnecessarily and feel like you should always be working or studying or doing something productive. But the fact is, you dont have to spend every moment you are awake doing something productive i mean sure... if you can, thats great. But your body and mind need rest as well and if you are always worrying or stressing about something then your brain never gets to just turn off and rest. So remember to take both physical and mental breaks every week!
Anyway, Sunday was a really nice day. After i had gotten some school stuff done we decided to take a walk and i got to see the area where he lives and it was really nice, even if it was super windy. It was nice to see and also get some fresh air. Then when we came back it was movie time and snacks, and we watched 2 movies before we decided we should make something for dinner. I suggested that we go to my place and make tacos as we had all the ingredients at home (so we can be sort of economic and not just buy food out all the time!!) so thats what we did :)
And that pretty much sums up my day yesterday! All in all a a really nice weekend :)
Im also super excited because next Saturday is Valentines day... and all my life ive been one of those 'what is the point in valentines day' and I still feel that way. (I mean go out to eat, show your love to the people closest to you or your partner everyday, why must there be one special day to show your love and appreciation?) but anyway, this year i'll actually celebrate valentines day!! Feels strange.
Anyway, its time to start getting ready for school :) So have a lovely day everyone!!
