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:

Morning update which turned into a dog post!

Happiness is waking up in the morning with no alarm and my dog cuddled beside me. Then starting my day with a delicious breakfast before cleaning my room and getting ready for the day!!

Pets are something so special, its a special type of bond. For me, i love dogs so much and i love my own dogs most of all. The one thing that kept me going in recovery and the one thing that ever kept me from fully commiting suicide was my dog. This is something i have only mentioned once or twice, because for some that sounds crazy. It wasnt because of my family or friends that i kept going, it wasnt for myself in the beginning either, but it was because of my dog.... i thought about how much i missed her and how i didnt want to leave my dog. So for a while that was my motivation!!

Recently i have been trying to convince my family to buy a new dog, but i know realistically that isnt going to happen. Not now anyway... i might be moving next year to study and then its 3-5 years away so i wont be able to take care of a dog, not until i were to have somewhere i know i can live for years anyway. And my sister is likely to move sweden to either continue her studies abroad or to start working somewhere and then once we've moved my family want to move out to the country or have a country house and a smaller apartment in until all of those things are settled i dont think we will be buying a new dog. But i keep bringing it up anyway, just incase... but then i know that if i were to move, it wouldnt be so much fun when i cant see the puppy anymore. hahah.

^^Me in the future.. minues the cigarette and that its a guy in the picture XD (And i would have different dogs)

In the future i am sure i will have 3 dogs or something - as long as i have time to take care of them and to give them the love, time and training they need! No point having pets just to have pets, you neeed to be able to take care of them as well!

So that was a sort of tangent on my morning post - sometimes the words take over! My plans today are to meet my friends and then later eat dinner with my friends - most likely at one of their places, unless we decide to eat out, but considering we are all students or looking for jobs, that seems unlikely XD

Now continue drinking coffee and get ready for the day :)


  1. Dogs are so cute :)
    Have you ever looked up what kind of dog suits your horosocope? ;) I´m taurus so mine would be st. bernard. Which would be great as I love big dogs.
    If you look up yours let me know :D

    Have a lovely day!

    1. I haven't actually done that. Do you just Google what dog suits your horoscope or is there an online test? :) I do know that beagle are my spirit animal - and that was after we had bought daisy!


      Here is one :)

  2. It was the same for me, my Dog is my best friend and when i was suicidal, i knew i had to live for her.
    I am gonna be the same when i am older, i want a house full of dogs!
    your dogs such a cutie btw :)

  3. you’re making me miss my cat! Here at college I am not happy to have no animals around. :(
