I’ve been considering getting a small wave tattoo to symbolize letting my thoughts go in and out like waves
Oo I like that!!
I love the idea of the wave, or the "maybe". Some people aldo get the classic semicolon tattoo, or something like "you are not your thoughts". Or maybe "you're safe", or is that reassurance? Idk. I saw an article where someone got the diagnosis code for ocd tattooed on them to remind them that the thoughts aren't real, its just par of the illness. "300.3 is a diagnosis code for Obsessive-compulsive disorders (OCD). As the owner of the tattoo jeherv mentioned in his post on Instagram, this tattoo is a reminder that the illness “is part of me whether I want it or not.” Now that he has recovered, the tattoo marks his fight against OCD and celebrates his courage along the way."
Oh my gosh I love this so much
This Radiohead lyric: “just cause you feel it doesn’t mean it’s there” This John Berryman line: “Nobody is ever missing”
Ooo John Berryman. Been a while, but I loved his stuff back when I read more poetry.
@CaptainKierkegaard Read Dream Song 29. It sounds exactly like someone with ocd.
No tattoo, but I got a button related to an art exhibit that kind of took on special meaning with my OCD struggle. I keep it on my backpack.
