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!

Accept that there will be bad days

Friday and the weekend is finally here!
I had hoped to be working both Saturday and Sunday but it will only be a 5 hour work shift on Sunday evening which I'm rather happy about now because to be honest I mentally don't feel so great.

Yesterday, Friday I felt completely out of it. I woke up just feeling strange and not like myself.. .. like I wasn't really mentally aware, I was half way to school before I sort of "woke up" and realised I had no idea how I got there and had no memory of getting up and getting ready. That strange feeling lasted all day and it was until after an evening workout that I began to feel better for the last 2 hours of the day.

This morning I woke up and felt awful mentally. Tired in every inch of my body and unmotivated towards everything. A constant and pounding head ache which is due to just feeling awful mentally. I can't quite explain why I feel this, just that my thoughts are heavy and I want to lie in bed and not do anything today. Which is exactly what I'm going to do.... I had planned to meet friends and be outside in the good weather but today it's actually going to rain and be grey weather so it works rather well to just stay in bed and watch films all day.

It's just to accept that there will be bad days. There will be tough times and times you just want a break from your own thoughts and mind, where the thoughts are so heavy that they give you a headache.

Today it will be rest and tomorrow hopefully I'll feel better but I'm already looking forward to working tomorrow! I really do hope I get to work more as I enjoy it alot, strangely haha!!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and excuse the lack of posts.  Busy in school and not feeling so great today :(


  1. Aww hope you feel better soon :(
    Do you watch Eurovision btw?

    1. Thank you :) I usually watch the Eurovision but not this year haha... none of my friends want to watch it and I just watch if I'm with friends and we make it like a fun evening with snacks and drinks and such. So this year I don't think I'll watch as I don't watch it on my own ^-^

  2. i hope you feel better soon. Try to spend the day taking care of yourself and doing what pleases you. Personally, I don't like sitting at home much and if it rains, I just go outside till I get soaked to feel better. Why don't you try that? Or maybe not, you could catch a cold. :P

  3. it seems its a period like this, I was feeling awful the last 3 days as well. for me it helps if I do something productive if im not too tired, if i am, its better to just sleep alot

  4. Hope you managed to get through the day ok and got plenty of rest. Sometimes we need days where we can just chill and re boot our energy. Bad days don`t last forever - you`ll have a better tomorrow, I`m sure xxx
