My Tattoo



my tattooThis is my tattoo… it is NOT a cry for help or a child throwing his toys out of the pram.

It is my way of saying

“I know I will never be cured, but I know how to control my demons.”

This very public admission is possibly the hardest thing I have ever faced, but I have enough self confidence, NOW, to say… hey I had struggles with depression, I have stood on a reservoir damn with a rucksack full of bricks, I have aimed at motorway bridges… BUT I have always known I have far more yet to give.

yes I have mood swings,

Yes I can look at the worst case scenario better than anyone, but I have developed coping strategiessemi-colon
