Staying Positive Through Words, by Drem (blog post)

That’s mine!


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. ❤

  1. This is incredible. I have 6 tattoos myself, and one of them is a quote stretching the whole length of my forearm from my wrist to my elbow. I got it to remind me not to let what I’m afraid of keep me from living my life or determining how my life ends up, which is something I struggle with everyday. Tattoos are wonderful, each one’s meaning will follow you for the rest of your life. Keep going, darling, you’re beautiful and you are strong!!


    1. I am just gonna say- I think I’m going to be the coolest tattoo person in the world. I actually can’t wait to go to the beach for the first time in my life. Now I have to loose like 50 lbs to wear a bikini top.

      1. I know. I’m already full of toxic stuff. I’m sure my dr would say no to a surgery. She was hesitant on the tattoo.
        I think I emailed you. I put on like 10 lbs. Now, this isn’t the end of the world. And, normally I wouldn’t give a fuck. BUT I want to show this off come beach time. Why am I telling you this? I really don’t know. Maybe because in real life I have no one to talk to about it. lols
