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!

There are thousands more books and way more topics but this is just to get you started. I tried to stay away from religious books as well as books that focus on one gender over another.
There are only a handful of memoirs because they can be triggering.

  1. Wow! Thanks for this list. Your whole blog is so inspirational. I'm in treatment for bulimia currently (outpatient) so I've been struggling, but reading such positive blogs gives me hope. So thank you for sharing your life so openly. You're such an amazing person for doing that.

    Anyways, so many books to read! I'm excited. Also, there's a great book called Tweak by Nic Sheff. I thought it was incredible and is about his personal addiction to meth. Just thought I'd recommend it!
