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: firstname.lastname@example.org

Monday morning ramble of thoughts
Good morning :)
Above is some Monday morning humor... or well, I can relate to all of them. Hahaha.
This morning was definitely one of those days where I woke and thought "do I really need to go to the school?" 90% of my mind screamed no... go back to sleep, but that rational and knowledgeable 10% of me told me, put on your lamp ansld put your alarm on snooze for 5 minutes. And so that's what I did. ... and now I'm awake and ready for the day!
As usual a bunch of studying today... Infact, i had a nightmare lastnight where some of our far off deadlines had been pushed backwards so they were due tomorrow and we had things that had to be done, and I was panicking in my dream. That school related stress nightmares.
But to be honest, I am coping well... for being me! Trying to Priotize sleep (fell asleep at 9pm yesterday as I was so tired). Studying one thing at a time and not trying to do everything at once, and also going out for runs or walks in nature and of course less caffeine which is also going well! So, so far i dont feel ovehwlemed by stress or anything even if there is alot to do. But I feel that I have more time to study now as I'm not surrounded by friends, family, boyfriend and don't have to feel guilt over the gave that I'm studying and not with them. But also I love how many library's there are here... the best place for me to study is the library!!!
It's important to find your techniques for styling and where you study best - if you're in school! Just because one technique works for another person doesn't mean it will work for you.
If you have any study tips, share them.... I'm sure others might appreciate them :)
For now... its school time!
And also, I've tried chain pudding and it is sooo good! My new favourite breakfast and snack :) I mix the seeds with soy milk and mix and leave over night (iI make 2 or 3 bowls at a time so I have for snacks during the day) and then top with whatever. But soo good, I'm going to have to buy a few more boxes of chia seeds!
I might post some different over night chia seed recipes if you like? (P.s they are sort of jelly like so they're a kind of love - hate food) ;)
