    Really felt this today ..... #MentalHealth #Anxiety #Depression #Selfcare #CheckInWithMe #Insomnia

    Soo today wasn't a great day either. I really had all these ideas that I wanted to get myself up and try and spend quality time with the kids and even just go to the park area across from our home ,but after good intentions and going to local shop really briefly it literally hit me ,I could hardly move with the pain in my back and legs even using the crutches,I felt ad though walking while feeling the catheter iwas like something pulling at my insides every step I took,I felt anxious ,I felt my self start to have a hot flush in panic, while trying to remind myself I was fine and I would be OK. I literally felt in a daze for the next few moments until we got back to the car and then back home where I had to go for a shower and then right back to bed because I was in agony , luckily enough they were still able to go out to the park and play and have some fun but I just felt like such a failure like my body is completely failing me and I'm failing ad a mum.I can't even do the simple things I used to do with them now without a struggle or pain getting in the way .I got myself so upset and I just had to remember that it's just a bad day & even though it seems there's a lot justnow it's not a bad life.My two kids are amazing and healthy and hopefully and I'm sure in ways they don't see me in the way I see myself.I have decided I'm not going to put too much pressure on myself right now because I cannot handle the fails.Im going to take it moment by moment and day by day and if I manage to do something I wanted and was happy about then I'll be proud of myself and if not then il try again tomorrow. I'll try anything right now to keep myself from being back in that dark heads pace which is absolutely no good for me or my family. ♥️It was a bad day for me but I have plenty to be thankful for and my kids got more time with me than they have past few days and I even managed it out of bed and to go out to shop with them so I'll be thankful i managed that 😊 ❤️

    Today's not a good day !! #MentalHealth #CheckInWithMe #Anxiety #Depression #Selfcare

    So today just isn't a great day ! Just can't snap out of this head space I'm in . In constant pain ,having so many issues with the catheter so hoping that this week they will do the #suprapubic catheter to see if its any easier and stops some of the problems.Struggling to get around even with the crutches, can't sleep and really anxious and worrying while waiting for the emergency ultra sound to check my lymph nodes to see if anything has came back (previous skin cancer) so just feeling constantly anxious. Just feeling really rubbish today and then silly because I know there's people way worse off than me and my issues probably seem so irrelevant 🙈but just can't get out of this negative head space today .

    Anyways hope everyone is having a good weekend would love to know what your all upto ??

    I'm really trying , but it's such a struggle...... #MentalHealth #Anxiety #Depression #SkinCancer #Selfcare

    So I got out of hospital I am still on long term catheter which nurses are coming in most days to check etc ,but my bladder is rejecting it so it's only draining little bits ,my stomach is still bloating as I'm retaining alot and the pain is causing more pressure on my spine,I am in constant pain, I've never felt so damaged through everything I've dealt with till now,Had my emergency app with dermatologist specialist yesterday and she's not very happy especialky with ky history of skin cancer etc so she's put through for an urgent ultra sound scan to be done on my lymph nodes to see what it is and if needs to be removed. The waiting is causing me so much anxiety and my head keeps slipping to dark places like what if it is serious and I won't be here for the kids and tunns of other crazy things .I'm trying to keep focused on little things crafty things I enjoy or organising what I can while sitting on my pressure cushions or in bed ,but dealing with the worrying while in so much physical pain ,using crutches, literally can't do anything unaided ,,trying to keep things as normal for kids as possible, teying to be the best mummy i can right now when im literally falling into pieces and waiting to see if I have to have a suprapubic catheter interested into my stomach because of these issues everything is just too much right now .

    Check out this week's episode of Table Talk 🎧

    “What’s something you often fake?” is something I asked our Mighty community recently.

    I chatted about the responses — and our personal experiences with faking it — alongside Ashley and Skye in this week’s episode of Table Talk.

    TL;DR: From laughter to pain levels to emotional responses, we’re pretty much faking it all!

    How can someone else support you when you feel stressed?

    Support can be a game-changer in times of stress. What we feel is too much to handle alone can be a totally different experience when someone else is helping out.

    If you were in a tough situation and felt stressed, what are some things others can do to support you?

    Mighty staffer Nina says that when she feels stressed, someone simply checking in and offering her favorite snack can help her to take a moment to herself to gain some energy to keep moving forward.

    Friendly reminder: It’s OK to ask for help, especially when you feel overwhelmed and burned out.

    TRUE or FALSE: I believe happiness is a choice.

    This is a controversial topic, we know — but it can spark interesting conversation. Happiness is a fickle thing that can impacted by things like depression, mental illness, mania, suicidal ideation, loneliness, financial circumstances, physical pain, and brain chemistry… just to name a few.

    Do you believe it’s something you can choose? Or no? Why?
