Winehouse inquest results

Amy Winehouse inquest results

So, we all knew that it was some form of overdose that had killed her, but this still made me sad. I'm really glad I got my anchor tattoo (to match hers) though... especially glad now, in a way, because I could have drunk myself to death quite easily, if I hadn't managed to pull myself back into the real world and force myself forward, if I hadn't got help for my anxiety and depression.

I know it's silly to compare myself to a dead celebrity; that's not what I'm trying to do here. What I'm saying is that, for me, her tragedy is representative of a whole generation's tragedy, and that having this anchor permanently etched into my skin will serve as a reminder that I don't want to end up just a statistic...

Mind you, when I get my Marilyn tattoo in December, my body will just be covered in symbols of dead celebrities. People are going to start thinking I'm a bit nuts. :P
