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:

Be honest with yourself

Something which i have started telling people alot recently via email and when giving advice is to start being honest with yourself. Because the truth is, no one else can know about your intentions. What can seem healthy from the outside isnt always healthy, and somethings which might seem unhealthy dont always have to be unhealthy. But only YOU can know why  you do things.
  Some things may be unconscious or just habits you do without reflecting over them, but i suggest that you sit down and really think about your behaviours and habits. Because this is YOUR life. You can continue living it the way you are doing, or you can make a change. But if you are struggling then its up to YOU to seek help and support and make that change.

It is very important to be honest with yourself, because you know why you do things, even if you try to convince yourself that you do something for a certain reason, but deep down you know what the actual reason is. Ask yourself, is this how you want to live your life for the rest of your life? Or do you want things to change... and the first step is admitting that you need to change something and then overcoming that fear of change and doing something different.
