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:

My morning of sleep

Good afternoon :)

It's Thursday morning and I can say, I am not tired at all!! Instead i have a headache, which often happens when i sleep for a long period of time (In this case roughly 9,5 hours). I woke up at 9am and it felt so good to get that sleep in, though of course the pounding headache is never nice.... i wonder if there is some scientific reasoning behind why i always wake up with a headache when i sleep for more hours? I can sleep for 4-6 hours and wake up feeling energetic and ready for the day, but if i sleep past 8 or 9 hours i wake up feeling heavy, drousy and have a pouding headache. Though my body definitely needed those extra hours of sleep. Running on few hours of sleep for a long period of time is never good, sleep is so important for so many reasons!! So a few nights of not enough sleep isnt so bad but if it becomes an everyday thing where you are sleeping very few hours then you will notice the consequences sooner or later, so catching up on sleep can be a good idea. Though the best thing is to try to sleep the same time and amount of hours each nigth for best sleep and function through out the day!!

My plans this morning are to just take it easy, drink a few cups of coffee, see if i get around to blogging though with my headache at the moment it doesnt feel like it. But once that has passed its time to take the dog out (hopefully the rain has stopped) and then the gym time and just having a freeday today with no stress. Tomorrow i am going to sit with my maths books again, but today i just need 24 hours of no maths so that i am fueled and mentally ready to start again!

I hope you all have a wonderful Thursday :) Make today a good day!
