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!

Random facts about me

1) I prefer to eat with a small spoon. Always have. (One of the things i hated most in treatment was that i wasnt allowed to eat with a small spoon.) Even now at my age i eat with a small spoon and i am pretty sure i will still do it 10 years from now!

2) I am either the person always wanting to do things, jumping around and doing things (restless as i am). Or i am the type of person who will lie in bed for 5 hours straight and refuse to do anything!! There is no inbetween XD

3) I enjoy comfortable silence! This is because i dont feel the need to always talk and i dont always have things to say. But also because it gives me time to do my online/social media stuff without feeling guilty that i am ignoring my company. But if everyone/both are just sitting in silence/all on their phones then it's nice... aslong as its not the awkward *everyone stares at their phone because they dont know what to say* situation. Because those are the worst!!

4) HOWEVER once someone gets to know me and i am comfortable with someone, then i can talk for days. Apparently once my sister and i start talking we can just talk and talk and talk and just sort of know what the other person is saying! We've spent evenings just sitting around and talking for 2 hours straight or going for 90 minute powerwalks in the evenings and then continuing or conversations for an hour at home! haha.

5) I am a people pleaser. Something i need to learn to be less of... in some cases anyway. But sometimes i do 'too much' for other people and put other peoples happiness before my own. But i need to find  a balance of not forgetting my own needs or happiness, but the thing is that helping others and making others happy makes ME happy. hahah,



Just some random facts about myself!
