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:

Things I am looking forward to

Some of my fears regarding the coming changes can make it hard to look forward to things as there is so much anxiety regarding the unknown. But there are infact many positives and things I am looking forward to about the coming changes!!

1) meeting new people, making new friends and contacts!

2) studying something I am interested in and love

3) eventually being able to help people with their intake and be able to write meal plans and such and get paid for it! ! And because of my past have an understanding of having to make changes in diets and either having to lose weight or gain weight, not being able to eat certain foods etc

4) I already have ideas about what I will write about for my bachelors essay (or whatever you call it. The last essay you write before you get your bachelors). Of course ideas change and grow but I think I have a good Base!

5) being able to be more independent. Pay my own rent, have somewhat enough money to be able to live on that, be able to buy my own food and just buy the food I want for the week.

6) new city.  New running routes,  new experiences and adventures.

7) moving away from home.

It's important to focus on the positives and not just get caught up in the negatives or fears.  Because that will hold you back in life. If I just focused on them I would just give up my place in university, refuse to move away from home and never step outside of my comfort zone. But that is not how I want to live my life,  especially not when there are so many positives and so many new and exciting things regarding the changes,  and it's best to focus on those.  Because there are always positives and negatives, but it's better to focus on the positives!!! :)

  4. Did you get into the dietician program now or are you still on the waiting list and just doing chemistry and biology when you start now?

    1. I'm still on the waiting list, but after the 16th, if anyone drops out I'll have a chance of getting in :) for now I'm doing the first course of the program (nutrition A) and if I don't get into the program I'll apply to all the courses of the program and get my bachelors that way :) hopefully anyway!
