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!

Ask me questions

Time for another "Questions and answers", i guess by this point you all know what that means.... I.e ask me questions and i'll try my best to answer. And you can ask anything, i am a pretty open person.

So if i missed your question last time or if you have asked a question and i havent answered then it's just to repost, or rephrase or reask the question and i will try my best to answer the question this time around :)

By this point i am pretty sure i have answered all types of questions and am a very open book, but maybe there is something you are wondering about or maybe a topic suggestion or maybe some constructive critisizm or something you want to see more of/less of... or just a comment in general :) Its always good with feedback and to know what you want to read about or dont want to read about. Or if you have any questions :)

^My dog likes to sit and stare at me when i write or study XD

  14. fun questions: what's it like living in Sweden? how does it compare with Ireland? you've told us about your boyfriend, what about your mum and sister, who sound lovely? what is your favourite scenery/landscape?
    closer to the topic of your blog: do you think there should be mental health education in schools? if so, what kind and at what age? or maybe it already exists in Sweden?
    NONE of these is important, so please don't feel like this is a big heap of questions to overwhelm you. It does not matter one bit if you don't reply! :) I am well, not in need at all, and I see lots of people writing in who are needy. So please, PLEASE don't feel these as pressure ... it's 200% fine to skip them all! :) Lots of love.

  27. how do you cope when you are so so hungry you've eaten all your allocated food and are in pain from your stomach. the anxiety is rife thru fear of losing control. you can't sleep and have panic attacks. you eat some veg to try stop the hunger and then this makes you feel out of control, guilt, shame and fear you'll put on weight. you feel you have to compensate the next day by having less veg. but are in constant fear of being hungry in case the same thing happens again. this is me and i don't know what to do. I'm gaining weight yet I'm still hungry and so can't justify more food - i feel a pig and so ashamed.
