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!

ED recovery problems

When people make ED jokes around me

(hahaha, i was actually told this.... to see inpatient as a vacation where i could just rest and eat... -_-' It is so much more than that, it is a mental battle and struggle every day, its not just to sit and eat.)




  1. Hi Izzy!
    I absolutely hated it and got so irritated when one of my friends compared being inpatient to a vacation. She said as a joke that she would come by always at snack. Made me so angry because I hated being in the hospital and I hated the snacks :( So many times cried over having to eat the ice cream or pancake or what ever. Now I know that she didn´t mean it to hurt me. She just did´t know or understand how hard recovery is. People who don´t have an ed can´t relate to the fact that eating and food is so scary. To healthy people food is a normal thing just like sleeping or wearing clothes.
    My point is that ed awareness should be spread and people should be educated more.

    Thank you for doing that Izzy!

  2. Totally agree on the inpatient vacation thing- in fact I just wrote a post about that exact topic on my blog. It is usually an extremely painful experience- both mentally and physically!
