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!

  1. I'm with you on leg cramps and lack of sleep. I've a cyst in leg which gives me chronic pain to the point i have to hold breathe. I'm also an insomniac. i love that quote i like quotes too and sunny days. its cold and rainy in london boo! i share your 2 things you want to achieve too xx one day lets hope x

    1. Oh I had a cyst in my leg when I was younger. Had incredible pain for roughly 3 years before they found out what it was and then I got an operation (where they sort of blasted rhe cyst as it had filled with water and was causing lain. .. or something like that). And since then no pain. But I was barely sleeping due to the pain when I had the cyst. So do consider an operation if you can... a week or two with rest and crutches and you will be fine :)
