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!

A simple gesture or kind words can mean so much to people

I want to start this post by saying Thank you! Everyday i get emails or comments, where i am told that i am an inspiration in someway, that i have helped you with recovery. And it still seems crazy to me.
  But i am so thankful for your words, and they always put a smile on my face. And i like knowing that i can help, even if it may not feel like it at times.
   I mean i am just a girl, writing a blog...  I have written about my past, what i have been through. All my emotions, my thoughts, my story is documented in this blog. My highs and my lows.
  Its my online diary. And it still feels so weird that i have so many readers. People who want to read what i have to say.

I am feeling low at the moment, but thats life. You cant feel good all the time, or maybe you can? But it is normal to have low times, and thats ok. Its just to accept that fact, and make the best of it.
 
I logged onto my blog, and read through some comments and some emails which i have gotten, and they put a smile on my face. Making me instantly feel better.
  You are all so wonderful, never forget that. Even if you just read my blog, and never comment. Thats ok. Just the fact that you are reading, makes me happy.
 
Words have the power to either hurt someone or to help someone.
  To me, words cause more pain than physical cuts and bruises. To me, words leave a lasting scar. A scar that wont fade, unlike physical scars that eventually fade in time.

But words also have the power to help someone, even to save a life. If you reach out to someone when they are low, or even let them know that you are there for them, that can make a huge difference. And it is so important that people remember that!
   Ok, this post took a bit of a different turn than i meant.

But what i wanted to say was thank you. All of you mean so much to me, even if i dont know anyone who reads my blog (Or maybe i do?) But i have got to know some of my readers. Some of you who often leave comments, or i've had more mail contact.
  And you should all know, you who are sick that recovery is possible! And you will be happy :)
And to all of you, you are all wonderful people, and remember to smile!
