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!

Recovery is about change

Absolutely nothing about recovery is easy or comfortable. But it's worth it. That's the difference. #recovery

Part of recovery is change! It is scary, maybe not something you want to do... but you need to. You cant expect to recover doing the same thing you are doing now. I actually remember when i was sick i said, I'll recover, but i wont eat.
  Those 2 meanings dont even go together... there is no possible way to recover but not eat. That was my ED talking.

You need to change.You need to face fears. Go against the voice in your head. Fight the anxiety. Because anxiety doesnt kill you, and that is important to remember.

Make a change today!! Just do it.
  Whether its that you dont exercise, or you eat extra or actually eat that morning snack, or drink that glass of juice. Just do it. Fight the anxiety and know that you will be ok!! Trust me, you will be. You are fighting the ED.
 
What doesnt kill you makes you stronger. And its the tough times that make you stronger.
Recovery~ could be from drugs, alcohol, an eating disorder or just about anything~ love it

  1. Thank you izzy i really needed this. Im battling at the moment with the fear to change and being able to give myself permission to eat more and allowing my weight to go up. It's so hard and I'm so scared it feels out of control. i don't know how to deal with the anxiety or giving up a way of life that I've used for so long x

  2. Recovery feels so scary at first!! But treat it like a fear of heights. Slowly increase your tolerance to fears you have around food. And when you feel the anxiety building up... talk. Let it out. Or cry. Crying is normal and okay!! Emotions are okay to feel!! Stay strong!! :)
