i’m struggling with writing. i have multiple post in some degree of completeness. this will be a short one so i can feel some sense of accomplishment.
while, you’ll never find me inking myself inking my body, i find tattoos to be a major turn-off, this next one is kinda cool.
a young women in oregon usa, bekah miles, fInds herself facing her first diagnosed bout with depression. she wrote,
“I am ready to have a conversation about my mental illness. Last year, I was diagnosed with depression.
“And in all honesty, I believe it was a problem for quite a while before that, but I think it just got worse to the point of hardly functioning.
“So today, I got this tattoo. I feel that my leg was the best place for the meaning behind it.”
people seeing the tattoo will see a script, “i’m fine”
she wants her tattoo to be a conversation starter,
Mental illness is serious, but so shamed in our society. We care so much for our physical health, but hardly a thing about our mental state and that is seriously messed up.
“Mental illness is not a choice and will likely hit everyone at some point in their life.”
the tat from her perspective, upside down, reads, “save me”.
she sure is accomplishing her goal. as of the writing of this article,, she has nearly 300,000 likes and 30,000 comments on her facebook page. you go girl.
