Legacy Husky || Scene || Purchased/Gift || Previous Owner
‘hey tam, I hope you enjoy her! I know she’ll be loved dearly by you. <3 – faith’
Meet Phoenix! She’s an ex legacy Pokey Husky. I purchased Phoenix from Dropbydrop for 9k, though I only had 3k as my original offer – I am extremely thankful to Katie and Candice for adding an additional 3k each and helping me bring Phoenix home.
I was diagnosed with mental health issues at the age of 12. I have dealt with self harm, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts, body dysmorphia and severe anxiety; these things controlled majority of my teenage years, and I missed out on a lot of experiences because of it. Still, at nearly 21 years old, I struggle immensely sometimes.
I have hit rock bottom many times. I have felt like I would never come out of my spirals alive, that I had no hope and that there was nothing left to hold onto. But I have always come out fighting.
“From the ashes I will rise” is something that connected with me when I first heard it. I think it’s a quote that sums me up perfectly, and sums up my fight with my mental illnesses quite perfectly. And there is no better creature to represent this quote than a Phoenix. Phoenix here represents my continuous battle with my mental illnesses; but also represents my continuous victory.
