    Well done hun! That can't have been easy for you at all and must have taken real strength :jumphug:



    I'm OK. Though think I've gone a bit bonkers. Booked myself for a tattoo consultation :eek3: :confused: :lolwut:
    Thanks. :hugs: Well he just kept on getting more and more controlling. He also has some pretty serious anger management issues so to be fair I didn't want to carry on in that relationship.

    Potential ED/maybe relationship? trigger

    He actually said that if I respected him, I'd lose weight for him... And this was before he got super controlling and basically wanting me to check in 4 times a day...


    Haha what tattoo you getting?

    naa i like meaningful tattoos, the one on my shoulder is of an angel killing a devil (some religious people apparently) but i see it as the good overtaking the bad parts of my life
    and my other is a yin yang sign with a red rose going through it (representing my mum and lancashire) then "Carpe Diem" written around the edge

    they dont hurt at all
    Oh they don't? That's good Are they ticklish? Coz I don't wanna move and ruin the design! :eek:

    Your tattoos sound great! Angel could be St Michael the archangel, if it's a specific angel that was tattooed onto you :yes:

    I drew up the design (not for a tattoo, just for... I dunno. I don't remember how it all started tbh! :o: ) when I was in my major psychotic episode in Oxford. Some people, my sister included, are like "why do you want psychosis/trauma/reminders of abusive tutor on your back?!?!?!" but for me it is also a symbol of good overcoming bad :five:

    i guess i see it as a SH pain though, but different people react to it defferently


    its that \/ i only got told it religious by my RE teacher after i had it done, for me it symbolises the fact that at the time id come out of years of self destruct and id over come the bad.

    The picture next to my username :yep: Although I'm having to alter the wording a bit in the second line, since I am reliably informed by two classicists that it does not make any sense atm :p:
    That sounds awesome! I have always wanted one but never actually settled on something that I know i'd want on my body for life.

    I survived! Way less anxious than last night! Didn't feel sick this morning, headache I've had all day is gone and I finally had a shower.
    Haven't got any work done yet but it's still progress. Over half way through my first prescription. Things are starting to look up.

    That is a beautiful tattoo! I want a tattoo but I haven't settled on a design. Forgive the cliched question but what does it actually feel like getting them done? Pain as such doesn't bother me but the whole 'needle' thing freaks me out because of medical connotations

    I'm good thanks. Got the whole of half-term off work! :woo:



    Aw, thanks I thought everyone would think it's really naff. Am interested in what the tattoo artist will have to say about it! :yes:

    That's good that you found it therapeutic! I'm scared about the pain :o: I figure it's now or never though, money-wise :eek:

    Hi new to post.
    In regards to tattoo's it's such a strange feeling that it's hard to explain. I know that's not useful to use at all but yeah. Um I think it kinda feels like a deep vibration in a way?
    I just got my first on Wednesday, and it was on my ribs so maybe it only felt this way because it's quite a bony area but yeah I think vibration is the closest description I can think of :s it is so hard to explain though.
    I also know you said pain doesn't bother you but my lord the outline was worse pain than I have felt ever in my life oh my gosh, again, that could be because it was on the ribs though - my artist thought I was mad getting my first on my ribs!

    Also looked through the last few pages and it seems to be mostly the same people posting.. Do you have room for someone new? (A)

    Yeah, he was a douche. He claimed to have PTSD as a result of being abused as a kid but, without meaning to sound like a ***** or belittling other people mental health issues, it just doesn't add up. I sound horrible saying this, but a part of me thinks that maybe all his comments about 'oh well I do this because of my past' were a method of trying to control me somehow.

    I don't know, all I know is he was getting worse as time went on. Maybe I am seeing things that weren't there but I didn't feel happy or confident in that relationship so yay! Single!

    Aww that sounds like a really nice idea

    negativeness is fine, I'm pretty sure this thread is exactly for this kind of reason - venting. Is there anything in particular you'd like to talk about? Like the kind of thing you were going to vent to your friend about?

    Don't really know you/your situation to help out right. you say you're in the safest place possible, is it okay to ask where you are? Also if it's the kind of lines I'm thinking of then maybe you might be able to see that perhaps family/friends care about you enough to try put you somewhere safe?

    well done for talking to someone about it though! It can really help, especially good news that they were sympathetic, even if it just means they put a bit less pressure on you
