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!

5 words that describe me
I saw on another blog that a girl had written 6 words that described herself. How she saw herself and she wrote about how you see yourself isn't always how others see you. But also in the blog world I might seem very different than how i actually am. So after you read my 5 describing words of myself, let me know how YOU would describe me. Do I seem different through blogging than how I see myself?
Quiet/Can seem shy
My personality is not super outgoing and i am not someone who is very loud either. Instead i am the quiet one, not anti social or anything, more that i am good at listening, saying things at the right time.
Positive and happy.
I always try to be as positive and happy as possible. To see the good things and change bad situations into good ones. Because really, there are no bad situations, just your reactions towards the situation. Usually my friends complain that i am too positive and that i should be a little negative sometimes... join in with the complaining. But i prefer to not do that, infact i hate complaining. If people want to complain - thats their choice and i dont really care, but for me personally i will always try to be positive and make things positive!
I can never make decisions when i am with other people. If i am on my own it is not so hard because then i just need to decide for myself, but when i am with others. Then it is much harder because i dont want to make the wrong decision... for example if i am asked whether i want to eat at thai place or an italian place, its not so hard to make that decision for myself... but if i am with someone else example my boyfriend, then i cant make the decision because i dont want him to not like the place or the food. Or feel like i made the wrong decision.... A bit of people pleasing i guess. Need to learn to be more confident.
How does this make sense? I dont really know.... but i would consider myself a very laid back person, in the sense that i dont judge others or the choices they make. I think everyone is allowed to do whatever they want and as long as it doesnt affect me negatively then i dont really care. I dont care how others dress, look, what they do. I like to just sort of go with the flow.... but then of course, i stress alot with school and school work!! haha
Writes lots of to-do lists but is not so organized.
People can often seem me as super organized and has got my life together... but really, i feel like an ant just sort of running around XD I feel a bit like this:
I have lots of to-do lists but i usually forget dates, times and what is on my to do list!! So even if i may seem organized i have so many thoughts in my head that i become deorganized. Not to mention the mess my room is in 98% of the time!! Sometimes i wonder how i even manage to get everything done because i feel so disorganized!!
So.... how i see myself, is that how you interperet/see me as well? :) Leave a comment, it would be interesting to know!!
