This just seemed so ... on target. I don't have any tattoos. but if I got one, this would be appropriate. I dealt with depression, panic attacks, PTSD, and agoraphobia in the early 90's. It is not easy. It is not accepted. It was not understood. It was not covered by SSI. They did not have Oprah shows about it back then. And they didn't have medicine for it then. By the time Zoloft came out I had been through hell. Let me also say that depression is not other mental illnesses. It is not BPD or SAD or LSMFT or any other combination of letters. Oh, and heartbreak and grief. It is not heartbreak or grief. I've had those too. (Writing helps that ;) ) But people with no degrees, no time or no discernment have been known to misdiagnose folks. Depression was far, far different. Like the young lady in this post eloquently describes. FAR different. Personally, I do ellipses ... but I like the idea of a semi-colon.
