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

Sunday brunch and resting
Hello there :)
This day has just sort of blurred into one, and i cant say that i have been productive at all. Not that i had planned to be productive anyway, but something productive might have been good to do. But i guess i will live by the "Sunday is a day of rest" today, haha.
My day started alot later than i had planned, i.e i woke up at 10am. I cant even remember the last time i woke up so late or actually slept for 9 hours (fell asleep around 1am). It is safe to say that both body and mind needed alot of sleep, and my natural wake up time around 6/7am was not natural today.
It felt good to wake up later especially as i didnt have anything planned. But i must admit, when i sleep so long/wake up so late, i always wake up feeling sort of drowsy and "out of it". Unlike when i sleep 6 hours and wake up feeling clear, motivated and full of energy. I guess it might have something to do with the sleep cycles?
The only real thing i have done today is 1) Throw together ingredients to make vegan pancakes, help make brunch and then eat brunch. (One of my first days jobfree during the weekend so brunch was requested with my family, and my step brothers joined as well.)
2) Started to pack my bags for Gothenburg... but all i have packed so far is my heels and my notebooks from springterm, as some of the studying will be a repeat this term so it will be good to have old notes with me. And thats as far as i got... as i cant really pack clothes yet and the things i will pack are my "daily items" so i guess i will just pack everything the night before and hope i dont forget anything!
3) I began to watch a movie.. but as usual, i have no patience for movies. They are too long and dont grab my attention at all, so after 45 minutes (where i paused the movie every 10 minutes to do something else), i finally gave up and am about to watch Youtube as 5-8 minute videos are so much easier to watch!!!
And this pretty much sums up my day.
Tomorrow will be my last day of work and i have mixed feelings about it, but i might write a post about it later, such as what i have learnt from my work!!
To end this post... the positives of my day:
Brunch & delicious food.
Rainy weather = cosy film/bed time all day.
Having absaloutly no "musts" today and just resting completely, both physically and mentally.
