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!

Feeling like it's the weekend
I wanted to write good morning, because its then that i usually write my own personal updates. But its not morning, its actually 5pm here in Sweden. Though the sun is still shining and its super bright outside which i am loving!!!
Today and tomorrow i am both free from school as its parent-teacher meetings and i had mine today. So after an awful night as i was in so much pain yesterday that all i could manage to do was lie in bed and watch a film, and eat roughly 200g salted cashew nuts to get some energy into me and then i fell asleep. But woke almost every hour from 12am to 6am, However at 7am i woke up wide awake and filled with energy so after breakfast i headed to the gym for a workout - a very slow one at that as i didnt have as much energy as i normally would and still had pain in my stomach. But exercising definitely helps.
Then i headed to school 2,5 hours before my meeting with my teacher so that i could sit and work on assignments, and its crazy how quickly the time passed. I only managed to get a few things done, not at all as much as i had thought i would and i was actually very productive for those 2,5 hours. Crazy amount of work to do at the moment. So i am just trying to cope with that and get everything done.
My meeting with my mentor went well, there really isnt so much to say apart from my french.... my circumstances and conditions for learning french arent the most optimal at the moment so struggling alot with that. But i've gotten a plan on what to do to improve which includes extra french work... just to add to my already long list of school work. But that's what has got to be done, no point in complaining. I just wish that i was good at learning languages. Instead i have the maths and science brain... not good at languages or creativity!
After my teacher meeting i met A and we headed into town and went to the Ben and Jerrys ice cream shop where we both bought a cone with scoops of ice cream and sat by the dock in the sunshine. Follow by wandering around the city and walking in loops and getting lost, and eventually ending up back where we started. With tired feet and legs we eventually landed back at my place before we soon head to his place where i will be staying this evening :)
Also i want to say, Happy St Patricks day :) I'm not really celebrating it this year but i did wear a green top today!!! And A really liked the top, hahaha :)
Are any of you celebrating St Patricks day today? :)
