Life without Anorexia

My motto is
'Dont let the sadness of your past & the fear of your future ruin the happiness of your present'

My life at the moment is completely different to how it once was. I spent 5 years sick with anorexia nervosia and depression as well as struggling with self harm and overexercising. I spent 2 years in different treatment centres.
And since 2012 i have been declared healthy from my eating disorder.

I have been blogging for 7 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 now blog about recovery, my life, veganism and positivity!

If you have any questions leave them in the comment section as i am much quicker at answering there, otherwise you can always send an email: lifewithoutanorexia@hotmail.com

Relationship/date nerves and anxiety (video)

I got asked if i could make a video about first time dating anxiety/nerves/stress.... so i attempted to do that!!!  Repetition, 'ehhhm', forgetting what i'm saying, all typical things i do in my videos as well as talking far too long!! But thats part of the charm ;);) hahah

  2. Do you think...(rather personal question) that a possible relationship with 2 people, is a dangerous thing, if your in recovery and so are they??

    your feelings for them are separate from ED recovery, yet neither is making a move yet - probably because of being still in the midst of recovery.

    Would this be a big 'no no' do you think? or is it something that should/ could wait until maybe after recovery and 'healthier'?

    1. Hmmm its hard to answer because it depends on the two people, however i would personally wait until both of you are better and more recovered because otherwise its so easy that it can become a competition and harder to recover as you might trigger one another, even if its unconscious or unintentionally. But also it could be that you feel connected to the other person because you feel so close as you both share the same illness and can connect on another level as you know what the other person is going through. Though if your connection/liking one another isnt based on the eating disorder and the connection you have because of that, then it might work. But i would focus on recovery and health and see how it goes from there. But this is my own personal opinion on the matter, and i know that doctors most often tell those who are struggling with an eating disorder to avoid making friends/relationships with others who are struggling.

    2. Thank you for your reply Izzy!! :)

      ...for now I am just focusing on my own recovery & getting healthy. Who knows what might happen in the future? Health however is no. 1 priority anyways :)

  3. I absolutely live thus video. Not only do you give good advice, but you are so cute! The little quirks you have, such as saying 'ehhm' often, just make you more charming!! I hope you make more videos soon.
    Oh, and a question... Are you at A's when you filmed this video?
