I know I said I would continue these posts on my ‘DelishEllie‘ blog but when I thought about it more I just didn’t see the point in posting only unboxings on a separate blog. So I am here with a look into the October ‘Sourced Box.’
Anorexia has one of the highest mortality rates out of all mental illnesses. I remember when I first read that I was stricken with both fear and the feeling that ‘it’d never happen to me.’ This fact was read at the beginning of my downward spiral with anorexia nervosa. I knew something was wrong and began to spend a lot of time scouring the web. To this day I don’t know what I was looking for. Maybe there was a sense of pride that I could relate to such symptoms. Maybe I was trying to find a way of getting help without having to address the problem directly to my parents. Either way my mental health deteriorated further despite my knowledge of the mortality rates.
I’ve written and spoken about my experience with anorexia a number of times already and will continue to write and speak about it until the day I die. Luckily the way I die will not be anything to do with the eating disorder. Some people aren’t at lucky though and that is one of the things that hurts my heart the most. I know the pain of living with such an illness and I know how difficult it is to come out of it the other end. However, I am living proof that it is possible and if you suspect that you are developing or living with an eating disorder then I encourage you to seek help as soon as possible. If my Mum hadn’t forced me to go to the doctor, if we left it a year later, a month later even, things may have ended up completely different to what they are now.
It’s been a while.
Over a year ago I started a new project, ‘DelishEllie.’ It was a blog that linked in with my foodie Instagram account and one that was solely focused on food with a bit of mental health here and there. However, as much as I love food I’ve grown a bit bored of just writing about that. Over the past few months I’ve found myself wanting to go back to writing about anything and everything. So, here I am. Reviving my old blog.
I am however going to keep ‘DelishEllie’ active and as more of a side project. I will continue to post on my Instagram account regularly and any food related posts will go onto my ‘DelishEllie’ blog. On here though you can expect to find film & TV reviews, album & gig reviews, my own personal thoughts on a whole variety of things and I am also hoping to incorporate more fashion posts as that is something I’ve gotten into a lot more over the past few months.
So you may have noticed that I’ve been a bit quiet on here over the past week, but for good reason. I officially launched the DelishEllie blog! If you have a love of all things food then listen up. I will be posting twice a week on Wednesdays and Sundays. Wednesdays I will be continuing with my ‘What I Eat In a Day’ posts but renamed as ‘What I Ate Wednesday’ while Sundays will be anything else food related including reviews and my own thoughts on foodie topics. I also plan on writing posts relating to eating disorder recovery as I am very passionate about getting rid of the stigma surrounding the mental illness and also want to continue to try and help others with eating problems.
I am never one to turn down a Disney film so naturally I jumped at the chance to go and see the latest release ‘Zootropolis,’ or as it’s known outside of the UK ‘Zootopia.’ Considering that it has been ranked in the top 250 on IMDb, I can confirm that it is unlike any Disney film I have seen previous.
I’ve been blogging for about a year and a half now, and only 6 of those months have been regularly on here. As much as I love writing about a huge variety of different topics, I want to put more focus on one particular interest: food & health.
