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!

Replying to comments - when there is not enough time in the day

Hello :)

I just wanted to write quickly that i will be trying to answer your comments and questions once i get time over :) This week is rather busy and i have alot of Uni work to do, so i am not ignoring you and want to help you all. But it might take a few days to get a reply... :) I have lots of different post ideas and topics and posts to make, but there is not enough time to do it, haha. So i thought i would write this quickly just to let you know!

  1. oh izzy i know you can't respond right now but i am really hurting and don't know where to turn. i am constantly hungry so i looked up extreme hunger and it says you have to eat thousands of calories and I'm scared that I'm going to gain loads of weight and go the other way. i don't what to do to stop the pain

    1. I am not sure if you were the one who asked about feeling really hungry in university? But i have made a post about that.

      But yes, during extreme hunger you might eat thousands of calories but that is energy that your body NEEDS AND WANTS. Try to not focus on the numbers, if you are hungry then your body needs more food and you need to lsiten to that. If you try to fight your bodies signals you will most likely end up binging in the future, so it is better to just eat what your body wants now and to feel satisfied and the extreme hunger will pass.
      Gaining weight isnt the end of the world, its ok to gain weight and your body most likely needs it. DOnt focus on numbers, dont weigh yourself, dont count calories... try to talk to someone and have someone for support and find a way to cope with anxiety or guilt. Be kind to your body. If your friend told you she/he was hungry, would you tell them to not eat? Nno, most probably not... so dont do that to yourself.
      Your body needs energy and fuel and weight gain is ok, its not the end of the world. You need to face the fears and your anxieties, it is the only way to recover and get better.

    2. thank you honey, it wasn't but it helped thanks and thanks for writing too i guess i just need to do it. i wondered if you were stuck on ideas for future posts whether you would mind writing about fear and anxiety. i have always been scared and i think my illness was a way to cope with my anxiety and fear of the world amongst everything else. was just a thought but you are probably snowed under so no pressure. thanks again x
