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:

Stressful morning

Good morning :)

Stressful times right now!! I feel like my work load went from 0 to 100 real quick! 109 A4 pages to read until tomorrow (though I've worked my way through 69 pages already), lots of questions to answer and another 20-30 pages to read in a book I don't even have (bought the books online last week, but they've been delayed until next week i think :/) My tactic right now... read and take notes on the train!! Haha.

This morning is also stressful as I slept through my alarm and woke up 20 minutes before I have to leave I. E I've been awake 10 minutes and need to leave in 10 minutes. Luckily I pack my bag in the evenings, I just throw on some clothes, brush my hair and teeth, drink coffee (before I brush my teeth) and then I'll buy breakfast when I get to school. Today won't be a super long day, I should be home by 4 or 5 hopefully, compared to when I was home after 7 yesterday and left the house before 6am. But it was a good day yesterday, and the masterchef competition I was a part of was fun as well. We got 10 ingredients or so which we had to use and then some other ingredients which would be helpful. We then had an hour to cook as many dishes as we wanted,but had to use all the ingredients. ...and out group decided to make falafel burgers with a cheese inside, salad, some type of vegetable rice (I don't actually know what vegetable it was and forgot to ask) and then baked mango with coconut cream! ! I can say, the food tasted delicious and when the 3 groups placed their food at the front to be tasted you could tell that everyone has an interest in food (and 90% have an interest for working out as well!).

It was fun and I got to talk to some people from my class/group anyway! I had thought about not going at first but I knew it would be a good thing to do... the easy thing would have been to just head home and skip the socialising. I was tired but I knew I would have a good time somewhat and I did! Sl I don't regret partaking in the challenge even if I came home late, tired and very hungry... hahha!!

Today... I'm going to talk to a carrier guidance counsellor/study coach ?, or not sure what to call her. But just talk about what my plan should be for autumn and whether I should try to make my own programme or keep applying for the dietician program, and in other parts of Sweden as well. So hopefully I'll get some good advice,  and after that I'll signing the contract for the room I'm going to rent! ! Until then I've sort of been "holding my breath"... anything could go wrong and I don't want to get my hopes up and then she tells me I can't rent the room. So until I've signed the contract I haven't really been able to relax about that, as I just want to be secure that I have somewhere I can live!!! So hopefully that goes well :)

And then I can come home and just relax for the evening and then 2 more long days at university this week!

Have an awesome day everyone


  1. You have a lot going on in your life ... but you know, it sounds really good?! It sounds on the cusp of coming together with new friends, opportunities and growing clarity about the next step toward your goals. That is a stressful time, but also a really exciting one! Have a wonderful day, Izzy.

  2. Glad to hear the cooking challenge went well - and the food looked delicious, I could easily eat that in a restaurant!
    Good luck with the room contract signing, hope you have a good day and manage to relax properly this evening. I bet you`re excited now its all becoming real!
