Bekah Miles has never been one to enjoy being the center of attention, but life had other plans. The psychology major was diagnosed with depression in 2014 and struggled with getting the right help and being vulnerable enough to tell others of her mental illness, as described by George Fox Journal. Miles made a major decision in August 2015 when she posted a Facebook status displaying her new tattoo and describing her depression.
Miles’ tattoo is an ambigram, which reads “I’m fine” from the vantage point of others, but “Save me” from Miles’ angle. The tattoo is a small, yet powerful, symbol that uniquely captures what life is like for those living with depression.
Miles shares more of her story in the following video.
