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!

It's my Birthday!!
I am mostly writing this post as a stating fact rather than a super excited post, hahaha. This year there hasnt been much excitement leading up to my birthday and today doesnt feel like my birthday at all. Of course i am not much for celebrating or having attention on myself, so in a way it suits me well that today is just another "regular day", i dont need the special attention and i dont need presents either. The only thing that bothers me though is the "being all alone" today, i have no lectures so wont see my university friends and dont have my family here, so today will be spent with myself, hahaha. But i will spend time with friends tomorrow and my family during the weekend :)
This past year has been a rollercoaster of emotions and happenings and life changing changes, hahah. The time has both flown by and gone extremely slowly. I am not much for birthdays or getting older. It has always scared me to grow older but as i do i feel like i handle life a little better than i did the previous year, i feel more calm and just a little bit more wiser from experience and knowledge learnt. Each year i make mistakes but i also grow and learn from them and become smarter and more mature and each year there are exciting things to look forward to and new experiences and life to be lived and that is what i look forward to as i get older!!
Now i am one year older and one year wiser from the previous year!!! For me a birthday is also a type of milestone and can amaze me because so many times in my life i have thought, "i cant keep going" or thought i would never make it past X years old, but here i am.... and its like i am proving myself wrong each year and proving that actually i can keep going even when i didnt think i could or when i didnt want to!!
I am going to make today a positive day!!
Last years birthday!!
