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:

Happy Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone :) whether you celebrate or not I hope you have a lovely day!

Try to smile and enjoy yourself. Take some moments to yourself if you need them. Be kind to yourself. Treat yourself like you would treat a friend. Talk to your family and friends and ask for support if you need it. Have a plan and have some helpful coping techniques. You will be ok. The food won't harm you and overeating won't harm you either. And even if you do end up binging,that is ok. Drink some water and try to stay calm,you don't need to compensate no matter how much you ate. Tomorrow is a new day which will hopefully be better!!

And even if today doesn't turn out good, try to make the best of these last few days of the year. And if ypu are in hospital at the moment then tell yourself that next year things will be different and you won't be sitting in hospital. You have the power to make a change.  You can fight against your eating disorder or you can sit in silence and self hatred. There are far worse things in the world than gaining some weight or fat. Focus on enjoying yourself and focus on being happy. If you are struggling with depression and not finding the joy in anything, atleast try to socialise even if it is just for an hour. It is better than nothing and one day you will be happy again. Things can change if you want them to and actually try to make a change!!!

You got this,I believe in you :)

Have a lovely Christmas! !!!
