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: email@example.com

Recovery is about change
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.
