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

Never give up on life!

Reasons to not give up on life:


To see the sunset
To laugh until you cry
To go on an adventure
To eat delicious food
To travel
To wrap yourself in a blanket and listen to the rain outside
To dance around while listening to good music
To reach your goals
To have dreams and ambitions
To sleep in
To wake up beside the person who makes you happy and you love
To see new things and experience new things
To do your hobbies and interests

Think of the music you will miss
The films you wont get a chance to see
The concerts you will miss
The adventures you will miss
The memories you will miss and never experience

Think about what will happen a year from now, or even a week from now... you really dont know what life holds, so why give up when your best day could be right around the corner? You never know what will happen.... things can turn around and become awesome, or they could get worse... but that is a chance you have to take. But you cant give up on life just because its tough, that wont make anything better. Then you are taing away the option of things getting better... so even if you are struggling, keep going because your best day could be tomorrow.... and keep telling yourself that.

Even if you cant see the light right now and everything feels dark and awful, keep going because there is a light. Things can and will get better, even if it means difficulty and tough times as well as sacrifices at first. Give life and living another chance!

    1. I am sorry to hear that you are struggling, making a decision like that is always hard. But from my experience inpatient can be very helpful... of course it is tough. Its not easy to be in hospital and not have your fredom, but then there are people who are there to support you and help you and make sure that you do things right. And even if it means having to take a break from 'life' for 3-6 months, thats ok.. because that is just a short part of your life. And it should affect your life positively! But also as you are over 18, if you really dont like the treatment or you feel its not right then you should have a right to cancel the treatment (but you have to give it a few weeks first!!). I know its tough, but think about what is best for YOU, not your eating disorder!
