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:

Graduation day

Several hours after my graduation is done and it still feels strange. It feels like in a few days time i will be going back to the school like normal, but the reality is... now i am done there. 3 years have passed and i am no longer a student there... now its time to start living life in another way. Done with high school.... such a strange feeling. It still feels so unrealistic.

I was up at 4am and its now 9.15pm and im not feeling that tired despite only drink 2 cups of coffee! I guess its all the positive and happy energy keeping me going!
  It has been so much going on since 7am until right now and ive been buzzing around all day! Tomorrow i am going to update with some pictures but below are a few that have been taken :)

I can honestly say that its times like this that are worth fighting for. Even if some times are hard and times you want to give up, its when you experience the positive times that it keeps you going and its the moments you remember. And its the moments you fight for... to reach your goals and dreams. Because i can honestly say, being done with high school has been a dream of mine for a very long time. But something i didnt always think would be possible, but here i am... officially done. Pretty amazing!!! And also happy and healthy which is the important thing... to be able to really enjoy these moments in life and cherish them as positive memories not as times that were filled with guilt and anxiety!!!

So stay strong and keep fighting for the good times, because even if there are tough times - i still have down and tough times - i know that there are positive days and moments which make it worth it to keep going!!!
