Re: My ring - a new SH alternative :) - October 17th 2009, 11:38 PM

I love this story. :-)

I've been toying with the idea lately of getting a piece of jewelry to symbolize my recovery. We ordered our class rings through Jostens. One of the most interesting things that they had were awareness ribbons. You can get anything on the sides of your class rings these days and you can get awareness ribbons, sure enough. You could choice the color of the ribbon and I wanted to get orange very badly, but I didn't want to have to explain it to EVERYONE.

I have a red bracelet that symbolizes my past struggle with an eating disorder. I don't wear that nearly as much as I used to anymore, though. I have yet to find anything that I like that would be appropriate for symbolizing my struggle with self harm though. I'm definitely keeping my eyes open, however. I'll be shopping for new jewelry soon enough. In a couple of months, I'll be able to change my belly button ring.
