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:

Study day

Thursday and a long study day with a few moments of procrastination of course! In one of my moments of procrastination I did a "guess who you are test and from my answers I was apparently a happy 50 year old male, hahahha. Not quite?

Otherwise maths is stressing me and I just don't want to anymore.  According to my teacher were supposed to be able to open the 200+ page book and able to do whatever question we first see. I open the book and began asking myself,  what is this?  Have I learnt this? What is the question even asking me to do? And that is my biggest worry at the moment,  that most of the time I don't even know what the question is asking me to do.... It says "evaluate" but I could do that 5 different ways, and I don't know which way it is asking me to evaluate the term. But also there are so many formulas and things which turn into things and a whole book of small things I need to remember,  which I definitely don't as I have other things on my mind.

So much maths today and I don't feel any smarter. At one point I got so irritated that I had to put on my workout clothes and go for a walk to get rid of the irritation. ^-^ school life, I'm sure that I am not alone in feeling that way at times!

Otherwise,  I looked back at posts from exactly a year ago and you know what... exactly a year ago my phone broke completely and I was feeling very low and negative due to stress and was getting bad effects and symptoms from antibiotics..... and a whole year later and I am in the same situation though now it's my computer and not my phone ^-^ somethings just don't change I guess. Anyway I have changed medication and I am already noticing a difference. The ones I was taking lead to extreme nausea,  feeling terrible and coughing alot of blood which was terrifying. So I am glad that I have changed medication and don't feel nauseous anymore! ! ^-^

Also to end this post and this day, trying to get back into positives of the day. I keep saying that I will start with positives of the day but then I forget or I have a  terrible day and finding positives isn't easy, but it's even more important then!

So my positives of the day:

Oatmeal (!!) Pretty much the only thing I've eaten today as it's the only thing at my boyfriends place apart from beer 😂 (and no my boyfriend doesn't eat oatmeal, that's mine!)

Coloured pens!

It's not minus degrees, so it means going for walks really aren't that bad

Listening to old music - Maria mena on repeat today!


At the moment I am so tired so just want to sleep and am excited for tomorrow, I just want to be home and to cuddle with my dog,  haha.


  1. Hi izzy, I know this might sound like a stupid question but I can't seem to figure out how to successfully link to past posts. I've put links on my blog before but it was to a different website. Can you help?

    1. Not sure if you are using blogger, or? But if you paste in the link, then "highlight it" or make it blue (as if you were to cut it out) and then there should be a link button where you can make the link click able and be able to change the name of the link, but not the address, if that makes sense?

      Not fully sure if this helps or answers your question? You need to find the link again, then copy it and put it on your blog and make it linkable and not just text :) but if you don't know the link or the post is deleted or changed name or such then it's much harder :)
