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:

Sunday thoughts

Good morning :)

I've put the tiredness aside (is that even possible, haha?), drinking some lemon water and tea.... trying to limit the coffee. So far I can't say it's going super; but less than before anyway! Though my sleeping seems to be worse than ever... really I should feel more tired and sleepy by drinking less coffee/caffeine, though it seems to be the opposite... and not in a good way, as I can barely sleep at all Ohh well, maybe I just need routines and when school starts again it might be easier to go to bed at a reasonable time!!

It's Sunday today and I'm waking up feeling somewhat positive and ready for the day!! first a visit to the gym when it opens  (9am on Sundays ) and then later on going to my boyfriends place! I recently got asked if I was still together with my boyfriend, as I haven't written anything about him recently. And yes I'm still together with him :) almost a year now,  haha..  though I haven't seen him so much lately. Mostly due to the fact that I have had alot of other things to do and travel to the university town etc and also I've had alot of stomach pain and discomfort which has made it hard for me to leave the house and nonetheless travel an hour to his place and then just sit in pain while there.  But also he works almost everyday until 6 so there isn't alot of time to see him anyway. I actually wonder how I've managed to how a relationship this long, because I'm good at isolating myself, not answering my phone and pushing people away. Basically 3 things that makes it hard to have a relationship, as well as me not being so great at talking or making decisions as well as being so independent and introverted that I think I need to do everything on my own and not burden others as well as I can spend lots of time on my and not mind.  Basically not a good combination of traits  to have a lasting relationship.  But I guess it still works, though of course if I move town I'll have to be better at answering my phone and talking as we won't be able to meet so often!

Anyway, next week  will be a busy week so today I'm going to try to organize and plan and to rest up for the coming week!only 1 week until university begins :)


  1. Have a lovely day :D x

  2. Hi Izzy! I think you should drink less tea since tea has more caffeine than coffee( my teacher told me but I haven't examine whether it's true)

    1. Hmm I've heard that before as well.... I'll check that out! Maybe just sticking to herbal teas then, haha!

  3. You don`t have to give up normal tea - just buy de caff instead, its just as nice! I only drink decaff tea and coffee and can`t taste the difference
