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:

  1. These are really good - thankyou! Particularly interesting is the one about the gut - brain axis and how probiotics can help. I haven't been too good taking mine just lately but this serves as a reminder that maybe they are doing some good:)

    1. I did link to an article before about how the gut bacteria can actually be a cause of eating disorders or depression... something i found very interesting. And i try to remember to take my probiotics everyday as i know how important they are!! The gut bacteria can definitely play havoc in the body.

    2. Yes I take them because I have found they help my overall digestion no end, and my IBS has definitely got better since I started them. Which ones do you take? I take Bioglan. After trying a few different ones these seem to be the best. I found a study on probiotics where they tested the strength of them as they transited the body and all the probiotic drinks - you know the yogurt/milky ones had completely lost their potency by the time they actually reached the gut. So its important to do a bit of research before you spend your money as not all of them actually work!
