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:

Learning to cope with emotions positvely

In reocvery it is all about learning to cope with your problems in different ways... not using forms of self harm to cope. And also to learn to deal with anxiety, panic and stress. To write or talk instead of starving yourself/purging/self harming etc

Find out what the actual cause and problem is as to why you feel the way you do. Even the feelings of 'fat' they are just in your head... there is usually a reason why you feel fat - like you are hungry, or stressed or tired. Its not that you are actually fat.

Remember this! FInd new ways to cope with your emotions.
