Life without Anorexia

My motto is
'Dont let the sadness of your past & the fear of your future ruin the happiness of your present'

My life at the moment is completely different to how it once was. I spent 5 years sick with anorexia nervosia and depression as well as struggling with self harm and overexercising. I spent 2 years in different treatment centres.
And since 2012 i have been declared healthy from my eating disorder.

I have been blogging for 7 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 now blog about recovery, my life, veganism and positivity!

Books for recovery - masterpost

This list is meant for educational purposes and to help aid your recovery. It is *not* meant for self-diagnosis. If you are concerned about your mental health, please see a professional.
There are thousands more books and way more topics but this is just to get you started. I tried to stay away from religious books as well as books that focus on one gender over another.
There are only a handful of memoirs because they can be triggering. 
Mental Health:
Addiction & Substance Abuse:
Bipolar Disorder:
Depression and Seasonal Affect Disorder:
Dissociative Disorders:
Down Syndrome:
Eating Disorders:
Pervasive Developmental Disorders and Sensory Processing Disorders:
Personality Disorders:

  1. I do hope you had an ok day, what with the visit to the cf clinic, Izzy. If the day's had its tough bits, at any rate you are not alone :) Sleep well tonight and good luck with everything. Thank you for your continued posts and online presence.

  2. Running like china by Sophie Hardcastle is a memoir that can be added to the list It details her journey of recovery and hope

  3. Another great and very helpful book : Life Without Ed, by Jenni Schaefer!! (highly recommended for any eating disorder : she writes about a range of them)

  4. How to recover from anorexia by Clara Dale (kindle book) is excellent and worth a read. Unfortunately its only available in kindle edition and not as a "proper" book which is a shame because I like my books!
