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!

Making the best of a new week
Monday and a new week! I wish I was filled with positivity for this week (like I was last night), but instead I'm feeling pretty drained of energy, have pain in my lungs as well as nausea and stomach pain. So not in the best place physically, the anti biotics have knocked me down completely and feel very unbalanced. (This is one of the reasons I hate antibiotics and avoid them as much as I can as they make me mentally more unstable I. E mood swings and such as well as physically making me feel sick, tired and just not feeling like myself.) However as i have an infection then I just have to deal with these 2 weeks even if it means I'm out of balance, sleeping more and the only thing I want to eat is bread and chocolate,hahah.
Despite sleeping past my alarm, which I've done the past week, I headed to my lectures and fought through the nausea and stomach discomfort as well as having some weird "muscle ache" type pain in my lungs. However when i got home the stomach discomfort and head ache hit hard so it was just to creep into my bed and take some pain killers. I actually have lots of plans for this week but i really amnt sure whether i can make it to those plans or not... i want to, but when i can barely get out of bed and can only manage to eat bread at the moment i dont know how good my chances are. But anyway... no more complaining. Though just to add something extra, today on my way to school i was listening to a podcast where the man who was being interviewed said that there had been a study done which showed that most people appreciated their body and health most after being sick... and i can definitely believe those results!! Its like when you are sick and you lose your sense of smell or taste and then once you get those things back its like the best thing in the world! After being sick you appreciate your body and health alot more.... though i appreciate those things everyday so now i just miss them extra much!!!
Anyway, going to try to find the positves of the day which is... 1) My lovely friends in school and all the awesome people in my class! 2) Warm, freshly (?) baked bread, 3) a bed!!! 4) Tea!!
Thats pretty much all my positives of the day, but atleast its something :) Do you have any positives of the day? Do you have any plans or recovery goals for the week? :)
