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: firstname.lastname@example.org

A day at the theme park (with lots of photos)
Trying to think of a clever introduction and way to start this post, but nothing is coming to mind. So instead, this will be my introduction!
A whole day at the theme park is what i have been doing all day, and the time has passed by so quickly! We ate breakfast at 8.30am and were in the theme park by 9.30am as we had bought early access though once we got there we realised that only half the theme park was open so most of the big rides werent accessible yet. Though we got to ride the 'helix' which was a super awesome and fun ride, and one of the biggest attractions at the park. And we're glad that we got to ride it so early because by the time the park opened the queues ranged from 50+ minutes and that just isnt worth it.
During the morning it started raining which made it a little miserable, but it was just to smile and be happy and by the afternoon there was sun!!
So many different rides and they were so much fun. The ones that swing and turn and go up and down are my favourite :) Do you like the theme park? What is your favourite ride?
After we went on one of the 'boat' rides where you got splashed with water we decided to go for lunch and i ate a salmon salad with bread. Which tasted absaloutly amazing, though i felt how my energy was draining and my body needed salt, sugar and caffeine as well as water. By 5pm we felt we were done and ready to go back to the hotel, so i went on one last ride, bought myself some chocolate and then went back to the hotel where i enjoyed my little tub of chocolate as well as drinking 2l of water and getting some caffeine into me!
The hours pass so quickly when you are having fun, though i havent felt tired at all, but my body is reminding me to pause and eat, so easy to forget when you travel and are busy doing things. But its important to eat snacks, and i personally believe its better to eat something than nothing at all. I.e extra chocolate as i know i need the energy :)
Anyway, too much talking when it really isnt that interesting. Instead you get to see
some loads of photos :)
Ohhh i also wanted to add that the big 'ferris wheel ride' was the absaloute worst ride at the park. Not even the turning, looping, swinging, crazy rides were that bad, they were just fun. But the ferris wheel that was sooo high and went around 3 times was the absaloute worst and i sat there with my anxiety on top. I have a huge fear of heights and find it extremely uncomfortable to be up high and look down and seeing how high i am is the absaloute worst thing. So i just laughed and laughed, not sure if i was laughing because of anxiety or terror or joy.... but it was awful, and the fact that we stopped right at the top. And it went around 3 times... not once. Worst ride and it didnt even go fast!!!
10 am in the morning!
Âfter helix.... hahah
