I spoke to my doctor. I spoke to the nurses. I took my blood tests. They said it was okay to get a tattoo even though I’m on chemo. (I’m only living without my B cells. The rest of my cells are okay. There are many types of chemo).
I knew what I was going to get. I have a list of inspirational quotes. This one has been helping me more lately. I decided it will be my first.
If you watch The Walking Dead, you’ll know it’s from that show. A girl kept finding herself at the brink of death. She lost her home. She lost her friends. She lost her family, including her parents. Her mantra is- Just Survive Somehow.
I will Just Survive Somehow.
No matter how much pain I’m in. No matter how many pills I need to take to keep going. No matter how much my emotions make me hurt through depression and anxiety. I will JUST SURVIVE SOMEHOW.
I don’t know how I will. I don’t think she knows either. We just keep going. Somehow, we will make it.
When I look at my body and hate what I see, I read those words on my body and remember that I will just survive somehow.
And if you’re wondering, next will be “You Can’t Take The Sky From Me” from the intro song to Firefly. ❤
