In honor of #WorldSemicolonDay, I wanted to share my #semicolontattoo and my story. ⬅ Since my pre-teenage years, I have struggled a lot with depression and suicidal ideation. For more than 20 years I have tried dozens of medications and other forms of therapy and treatment with only moderate results at best. There is no cure and l know that I will live with this illness for the rest of my life. It's hard to live every day while fighting a constant battle in your mind that constantly tells you to give up. It's hard to live when all you want is to die or to just be dead. I'm perpetually exhausted emotionally, psychologically and physically. It makes doing even small tasks each day difficult. After a major breakdown last year, I decided to finally get my semicolon tattoo as a symbol to remind me to keep fighting. I incorporated the lyrics to my favorite #ThirtySecondstoMars song, #DoOrDie, because they inspire me and represent the meaning of #ProjectSemicolon (my story isn't over yet; ) in a way that is personal and meaningful to me. So I thought I would share it with all of you.
