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!

If you have any questions leave them in the comment section as i am much quicker at answering there, otherwise you can always send an email: lifewithoutanorexia@hotmail.com

Choose recovery - you are stronger than your eating disorder

"Dear anorexia
I don’t want you.
I want a scoop of cookies and cream and one of toffee at the ice cream parlour, not the fat-free fruit ones.
I want to be able to say “I want chips for dinner” and just go out and buy some and eat it with joy.
I want to be able to eat dinner at 5 PM or 8 PM and not freak out of it’s not in your time frame.
I want to spontaneously go out for a milkshake with friends and not have to plan it all out.
I want to have that gooey chocolate chip cookie and not have to restrict because of it.
I want to add whippy cream to my cake because it’ll taste just that little bit nicer.
I want to be able to not look at how many steps I’ve taken and force myself to get to a certain amount, I want to be able to be okay with sitting still.
I don’t want to cry over the five calories I’ve eaten more than I planned today.
I don’t want you.
I don’t want to need you."

"I know you’re sad, so I won’t tell you to have a good day. Instead, I advise you to simply have a day. Stay alive, feed yourself well, wear comfortable clothes, and don’t give up on yourself just yet. It’ll get better. Until then, have a day."
