My Story Continues

The last couple of years has been a tsunami of addiction, mental illness, homelessness, and heartbreak. I have been through things that I wouldn’t wish upon my worst enemy. It seems completely implausible, yet I am still here today; fighting the fight. I recently read an article about  Project Semicolon which was formed with the vision of helping people struggling with addiction, depression, self harm, and suicide. The symbol they have chosen to associate with their cause is a tattoo of a semicolon.  The semicolon ( ; )  is a punctuation mark that the author uses when they could have ended a sentence and chose not to. As founder Amy Bluel put it: the author is you, the sentence is your life; the semicolon represents your decision to carry on.

Today I got my own tattoo as a reminder that my life isn’t over; my story continues.
