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!

Dreaming myself away....

At the moment i am dreaming myself away to some warm country where you can walk around shorts and t-shirts. You can go buy fresh fruit everyday and go to vegan cafes. Drink green smoothies and eat raw food cakes. Lie in the sun and go for walks or runs along the water/coast.  Have time to read books and just lay and listen to music. Have my own apartment and have a really nice, clean and modern kitchen where i can keep all my fresh fruit and delicious food.
  Be able to walk places and have a gym where you can work out outside as well as inside, and go to cafes where you can bring your dogs. Eat breakfast buffets where everything is fresh and delicious.

This is my dream at the moment..... but for now, i need to deal with reality and have this as my goal and dream and who knows, maybe one day it will be reality! Not sure if i want to live in Sweden the rest of my life, i would like to move to the U.S but i know that its not  that easy also the fact that it would be a completely different culture change and not to mention that health care isnt exactly free there, which could cause problems with my CF as i need constant medication and health care.... but too much reality. This post is my "dreaming myself away" post, reality doesnt need to be involved for a while :)

Do you have any dreams or dream places you want to go to/things you want to do?

  1. My dream is to move to Bergen in Norway (google it, it's nice :) ). I am Norwegian btw ;) I wanna work at a labratory, doing research, writing rapports, doing fieldwork etc. And on my sparetime I wanna go to restaurants by the sea, walk in town, and lets not forget about the AMAZING nature and mountains I will be exploring! I will have the freedome to get up early before work and walk to the nearest mountain top and eat my breakfast there, before heading to the work which I love! And I want to have a loving husband and maybe a dog :) And also have time to do strength training with him perhaps. Gosh, that is such a realistic dream in fact - might as well become reality :)

    1. That sound amazing!!! And definitely something that can become reality :) I mean dreams can become goals :) I would love to visit bergen sometime! ! :)

  2. I already have my dream in reality. I have my boyfriend and my little black cat, a small flat for the three of us, in Berlin, which i like a lot, because it has the advantages of a big city, but still beautiful countryside and lakes and nature.

    Typing down all this, i really wonder why i am still feeling depressed sometimes,I am really happy with everything i have.

    I hope you get to fulfill your dreams one day.
    But also be happy about the present. Love, k

    1. THat sounds amazing!! Depression is weird at times, i feel the same way... i mean i should be happy, i have a good life and things are good... but why do i feel so sad. But its not something we should feel ashamed about or guilty about. Depression isnt a choice, but an illness and even if things are good that doesnt mean that you cant suffer. But i hope you feel better soon, keep focusing on the good things and the positives!!

      Thank you!

  3. You are such a lovely, pretty and strong girl, and "wise" :) ! I`m glad that I found your blog, it`s a big help for me - hope, your stomach is better!

  4. Seriously, Izzy, come to QLD! (Australia) It's warm for most of the year :) My winter clothes are a singlet underneath a jumper, with shorts :) We have heavily subsidised healthcare as well :)

    1. Omg... i want to pack my bags and move there now :) hahahha.

  5. Look up "Whitsundays"- that's where I am :)
