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!

Another day in the sun

Today was another day spent in the sun and now my body is red and feeling super warm. It is my irish skin... i turn red and burn myself easily and it doesnt help when you fall asleep in the sun. Someday i will learn i guess, though luckily this year i havent felt dizzy or fainted from the heat. Not yet anyway. I am very sensitive to the sun so once it gets too hot i begin to feel dizzy and faint from the heat, but making sure to stay hydrated is a good idea anyway!

The day has been a really good day, but i am looking forward to travelling home tomorrow. Not sure what time it will be, as the boats dont go so often but it will be nice to sleep in my own bed and to start getting some things ticked off my list of "to do's". But also to have functioning internet, because out here it has been a battle to get internet to work at all, haha. But ive managed to write a few posts anyway :)

Also, on the way home from the small island we were at (a different one than yesterday) the boat stopped and i found that very unpleasant as i find being on the water creepy enough as it is. (Maybe the wrong word) but i can get anxiety when on the water and especially in a little boat like the one we were in. I just end up looking in the water and imagining how easy it would be for the boat to be knocked over and we would be stuck in the water. Or as it so happened, for the boat to stop in the middle of the water and be stranded. An uncomfortable and unplesant 15 minutes, and Daisy began whining which didnt make it better, hahaha.

You can see videos from my day and the island on my snapchat: izzy-m1 . You see more behind the scenes and how it looks :)

Now however i am going to spend time with my family, not be anti social!
