DON'T WANT TO BE ANOREXIC.

Read below first ☺
My name's Kasia. I'm an 18 year old girl
in recovery who's recovered from Anorexia. I've had Anorexia since May 2010. I also suffer from severe depression, anxiety and some OCD tendencies.
I've been in recovery since September 2010, but I only began taking recovery seriously, and wanting it for myself, in January 2011, once I realised I was wasting my life in hospital.
I went into hospital at the end of October 2010 and left in March 2011. I went to hell and back there.
I am at a healthy weight recommended for my height, but I will not discuss my weight or height because I believe any discussion of numbers leads to a disordered competition, so please do not ask.
I'm trying to lead a healthier lifestyle, whilst inspiring my followers to do the same by choosing recovery.
This is where I will write about my ups and my downs, and I hope to show those of you with eating disorders that recovery doesn't mean "getting fat". It means leading a healthy and happy life with freedom. My posts will mostly consist of personal posts, inspirational photos or quotes, research into the psychology of eating disorders, and also a few items on fitness and nutrition.
My daddy has a page on my blog called "The Gospel According to Dad" which I'm hoping will show you how much your ED affects those around you, and maybe if a parent of an eating disordered child sees my blog, they will see that they're not alone in this experience either.
Think of this as a recovery blog, but if are you triggered by talk of exercise then please read with caution as I sometimes post about my workouts. This is a place that inspires recovery, and also a healthy lifestyle.
I love giving advice, so if you need help with anything, I'm always here for you, even if it's just as a distraction. And you can always contact me by tagging a post with dontwanttobeanorexic.I answer privately if it's unrelated to me/my food posts/my blog. br>

Don't want to be anorexic.
First run of the New Year!
Oooh, it was a good ‘un!
Nothing beats running in new gear :-) (Thank post-Christmas sales!)
Had the first of my mock exams today and I think they went well, but something else (personal) angered me and I had to relieve the stress someway.
I haven’t been running in ages, but I always find it very therapeutic and it gives me a good buzz afterwards so I forget all about my issues (until I’ve cooled down :-P)
Also, stepped on the gym scales. Turns out I didn’t gain any weight from my indulge Christmas, which is great news, but I need to get back into my regime and regain my muscle mass because I feel a lot less toned after the holiday period.
