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!

If you have any questions leave them in the comment section as i am much quicker at answering there, otherwise you can always send an email: lifewithoutanorexia@hotmail.com

  2. I know this is none of my business but if you are taking birth control that can cause depression for some. It's none of my business and you don't have to answer if you take it or not, but when I was taking birth control pills I became very depressed and when I stopped taking them I eventually felt better. Maybe something to think about if you take them? But maybe you don't. I was just thinking. I'm so sorry if this invasive.

    1. Don't worry your comment isn't so invasive... I have considered this as I am taking birth control so I might switch what I am taking but I have one more month and then I'll see. It might have been a trigger to my depression anyway :/ ifs hard to know.

    1. Thank you. When you are stressed it messes wuth hormones so that is likely why you lose your period. But also if you aren't eating eniugh due to stress ... that is usually what happens to me. That the stress makes me eat less and then I lose my period but also because of all the crazy hormones in my body due to all the stress. The best thing is to find a healthy way to cope with stress!
