Does the Mighty have group chats?

I forget if they do? But would love to use them if so! Anyone know how to access them if they are on the app? Thanks! 😊 #web #App #MightyTogether #question #help

App

I have several different autoimmune diagnosis chronic pain, neuropathy , RA, adhd & everything in between . I have always had to write dates and notes of everything . This includes flare days, notes, dates of mri’s, labs, X-rays and as soon as soon as I leave a dr’s office I always note how my visit went & different remedy’s we’re going to change or add. Personally this has become really overwhelming for me as I attempt to keep track of it all. I’m already a very forgetful person and struggle with memory issues . I just do better overall by writing things down. I try to keep track in a notebook and my calendar & it’s just too much. I am so overwhelmed with keeping track of everything that life has been quiet chaotic. I guess the overwhelm of making sure I’ve noted everything that I’m finding it so hard to do very basic tasks in life . Can any of you reccomend an app that can help us navagate through life and actually live all at the same time .

Thank you so much

Mental Hospital Tycoon; A Total Insult to Mental Health Patients and Professionals Alike

Who doesn't love a good tycoon style game? You get to manage a business that you'd otherwise never get to manage. You get to exert some control over something in the midst of chronic illnesses that constantly threaten your grasp of controlling the circumstances of your own life. It's an escape. Sometimes medical based tycoon style games like Project Hospital, for instance, are quite therapeutic as you help find diagnosis for patients and build a facility that you wish could be accessible to you somewhere. It puts you in a place of figuring out a diagnosis when your own is so complex that even the best doctors are still going "heck if I know!". It's sort of a break from your own illness firna moment and instead of the constant endless loops you face with your illness, you find yourself facing someone else's but there's a linear process to discovering the source of the problem. If life only worked that way all the time!

But then comes the misuse of the format. Recently I was on the Play Store when I came across a game that says "build your own mental hospital". From the get go it sounded cringy to me. However, a game in which you create a mental health facility is not at all a bad idea. It would empower patients to create the types of environments we want to really see and possibly give insight to professionals about what may really be beneficial for us and helpful if it let us design treatments etc. But this is not that game. It depicts stereotypes and not just stereotypes, but the blatant mistreatment of those with mental illness and further stigmatizes them. The game features restraints holding people unwiingly down onto beds, lock ups, beatings, patients escaping and stealing trucks on a joyride, features patients reminiscent of a band of stereotypical mocks of absolutely inaccurate depictions of mental health conditions, treatments that not even some of the worst former institutions would utilize, and altogether is a dangerous perpetuation of a stigma that still results in needless loss of life for those suffering from mental health conditions because of stereotypes like this that make people afraid of seeking mental health treatment. This depiction of a mental hospital is downright irresponsible, insulting (both to patients and mental health professionals alike), and quite dangerous should a child be exposed to this and think this is the standard treatment of the mentally ill in our society or that people with mental health conditions are to be feared, treated as inferior, or abused and it's all just par for the course, fun and games, etc. Perhaps the most disturbing overtone is that the patients deserve what they have coming.

What's your take?
Is it just a harmless game poking fun at the most serious parts of life to take the edge off? Or is this a problematic, dangerous depiction that should be removed from the Google Play app store?

I tend to think the later is my personal view.

Is Anyone Having Trouble with Notifications? #TheMighty #TheMightyApp #App

I've had notifications stop suddenly several times. I notify tech help for the app and it's usually fixed within a few days.

My last notifications shown were three days ago. I contacted help a couple of days ago, so I'm sure it'll be fixed soon, but I was wondering if anyone else is having this problem?
