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!

Turning off social media and spending the day relaxing
Hello Hello!! :)
It's 8.30pm here in Sweden and it's my first time using the computer today - crazy i know. I cant even remember when it went a whole 24 hours since using my computer. Though of course as internet and social media is accessible from the mobile i have still been slightly connected, but not in the same way. As i was going to an 'afterwork' dinner and mingle with A and his work friends i decided to leave my computer and home and then if i slept at A's place just manage without a computer. (So the posts this morning were scheduled!)
The afterwork was fun yesterday even if i didnt feel 100% energetic at the time, all i really wanted to do was sleep and felt that i didnt really fit in as i dont know anybody. But i made the best of the situation and even though i had low energy i tried to enjoy myself as best i could!
I then headed back to A's place where we finally got back sometime after 12!
Then this morning i started my day with sunshine and a podcast while out in nature followed by breakfast with A. We then decided to take a super chill and relaxed day by driving to his parents house and using their sauna and jacuzzi which was where we spent 4-5 hours and ended up looking like raisins afterwards!!
Its funny how not doing so much makes me extremely hungry (or it's the walks/runs i am doing now on my break)! But i feel like eating my entire body weight in food, which is pretty much what i am going to do this evening. I just want to eat lots all at once!! When i stay at A's place i dont eat my regular, big meals and snacks so i think now my body is telling me that i have been low on energy and need to refill! So oatmeal,salted nuts, chicken, crisp bread and bread, some chocolate as well!!!
I hope you have all had a lovely day :)
****I will be be back to replying to emails sometime next week - hopefully. But for now, if you have comments/questions it is best that you ask on my blog as i dont have so much time to reply to lots of personal questions/emails at the moment. I hope you all have understanding for that! I do try my best to help everyone, but at the moment with a huge amount of studying which needs to be done, family/friends/boyfriend to spend time with, my own time, workouts and my blog & other social media it can be hard to find the time to reply to every email i recieve. So its best to first off search my blog or comment on my blog and it should be quicker to get an answer/reply :) ***
