Yes! The cat is out of the bag! I have tattoos. I waited to get this tattoo until I truly felt "Freedom"!
The chains of Bipolar Disorder and stress are broken. Does this mean I am healed and I no longer have any symptoms? No it doesn't. It means I have learned to managed the symptoms so they do not manage me. Diet, exercise and spirituality are key to managing this illness.
I have taken the time to learn what the illness is truly about, work on my problems from child-hood trauma, sexual abuse, physical abuse and school yard bullying. My life is so much better now. The chains are broken and I am set free!
