Anyone thats knows me, knows the impact of being sick has had on my life. It makes you think about the things you want to do and the things you have never done. I can say I dont think I would have ever gotten a tattoo in the past. So last Saturday, I ponied up the courage and got a tattoo on my right forearm. It has been somewhat well received at work, and most people that notice it, usually say “That’s neat or Cool”. All that know me, understand the meaning behind it and dont need the explanation…only in some cases with folks I encounter during the day is a short explanation needed. Now that I have it, I feel like it is very much me, and wonder to myself why I didnt do this in the past. Penelope will say that I was a big scaredy cat..or make a chicken noise….but I never really had a need to or a desire to but for now….I am sure some think its perverse or a way to show off. For me, its a way to show my support for something, but more then that its a way to say that I survived and I am still here…always….just a quick tattoo thought
