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: firstname.lastname@example.org

Make life worth it
This morning I began thinking about the fact that I say "it's worth it" alot regarding recovery and life. I tell you to keep fighting because in the end it's worth it. But the truth and fact is that you also have to make life worth it. Because you could just sit around each day, not doing anything, being bored and feeling awful and then you think. .." this isn't really worth it."
Of course life has its ups and downs you can't escape that, but you can make life worth living which is the point. To do things you enjoy and things that make you happy, because otherwise what is the point? Life is short and you need to make the best out of each day. You need to find your joy and happiness each day. Your motivation for life and make each day good. Make life worth living and fighting for through dreams and goals. Because otherwise you can sit around and just think. ... this was not worth it and life isn't worth it. But you aren't making life worth it;so of course it doesn't feel that great.
This is just my opinion and thoughts. So when I say, "it's worth it" I also mean that you have to make life and recovery worth it.
