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!

When people know how to make you feel better

Those days when you can't make a decision.  You feel sad, tired and just feel weird. That was exactly how I felt when I came home... I just didn't know how I felt or what I wanted to do. I wanted to be alone but at the same time I wanted company. As I couldn't make a decision of what I wanted to do, instead my boyfriend made the decision for me and he picked me up and we went to the store and bought a bunch of snacks. And then back to his place to watch series.... just the type of evening I needed. Sometimes you need someone else to make the decision for you and to take care of you when you can't take care of yourself.

A  nice evening to take my mind off of things which is basically what I need right now. To just not be in my own thoughts and mind, though it's not as simple as that either. But focusing on the positives!!

In the second picture,that's how it usually looks when I take pictures! Hahha


  1. Stay strong chick may tomorrow be a better day for you xx

  2. Did you tell A you were going to mando? Just curious. Does he ask about your eating disorder once you told him? Kind of interesting navigating relationships after having an eating disorder. After today, I'm sure it was great having him as a support system. Hope you feel better. You are such a lovely person. If negative thoughts continue definitely reach out to your support systems. Always better to do this before sad thoughts get too powerful. Xo

    1. Yeah I did :) felt weird as I just want to keep that part and my history out of the relationship but it is a part of my past. . And he knows I blog as well. And thank you so much!! It took me a long time to actually tell him about my past but I did eventually and it actually made the relationship stronger in a sense :)

  3. Hey izzy
    I know it's a hard time and it's kinda hard to keep your head up and I think you deserve a little support from us you are supporting all the time. I know words may not seem like a ton, but I really know you are super strong and beautiful and inspirational in so many ways. You are going to go on to do amazing things I know it! No doubt in my or any of our minds. You can do this and get through the tough thoughts and bad feelings you've got this and we are all cheering you on ok?

    1. Thank you so much for your lovely email,that means so much to me that you care and took the time to write your comment! ! Means alot to me :)

  4. I second the anon two above! You have helped me so much and I cannot thank you enough. I know this time between graduating and going to study and become extra independent is always an overwhelming time. But things will always workout and I to believe you will have a fantastic future! You are extremely intelligent and strong, and those traits will take a a long long way, You are helpful, caring, and have always taken the time to push others to keep going, So I hope you also keep going with this little rocky time. You deserve all the chocolate, nuts, Ben and jerrys, and all the others of your favorite foods ( even if none of this is even Ed related of course ), and happiness you can get, so I'm sending positivity and happiness your way! You've got this!
