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!

  1. Thankyou so much Izzy for taking the time to source and post these links - they are incredibly helpful. The article on "functioning depression" was particularly enlightening - what it described was exactly how I felt when I was coming out of my "rock bottom " severe depressive episode. I had no idea that having exposure to plenty of sunlight could help you!
    I`m sure many of us will find these links useful - you`re such a star for posting them :)

  2. The 30 affirmations for ED recovery are excellent - everyone should read them. I could do with them being stuck to my fridge door!
