    What helps you boost your self-confidence when you're feeling down?

    Mighties, March has felt like such a long month for me 😩. My thoughts have been racing for the longest time. I think it's time for me to prioritize some self-care that'll boost my self-confidence.

    What usually helps me the most is getting my eyebrows done, getting dressed up, and taking myself out on a solo date. I'll make sure to add that to my to-do list right away 📆✍️.

    What about you? What do you do to help boost your self-confidence?

    What are your favorite types of playlists to listen to?

    This past month I’ve been listening to so many different types of playlists!

    From the playlists I’ve made myself based on my moods or interests, to the algorithmic playlists curated by YouTube, Spotify, or Pandora, to the random ones I find when I click on a new artist — I’ve found so many new songs or old classics to listen to. I think my favorite one has to be the 90s playlist YouTube suggested for me this month. I just love it! 🎶😌

    What type of playlists are your jam?

    What are some of your favorite quotes that have helped you get through hard times?

    Who doesn’t love a good quote? I know I do 🙋, especially on the days I need an encouraging word or piece of advice to keep moving myself forward.

    One of my favorite quotes is not something I read online or something someone else said, but what I kept reminding myself every day since 2016 — "It’s OK for me to gentle with myself and the journey I’m on."

    What’s yours?

    Set a bite-sized goal with us.

    Mighty staffers have lots of options about New Year’s resolutions, but you know what we can all agree on? That goal-setting is a good practice at ANY point in the year — as long as it’s approached from this perspective: no goal is too small or silly, and goals should be encouraged to change.

    That being said, set a snackable goal with us today! What are you looking to accomplish today, this week, next month?

    💪 P.S. Not hitting a goal doesn’t make you a failure because pivoting is a natural part of life.

    I thought I could hold on.

    Grief has hit me in many different ways today. Grief for a community I lost. Grief for my grandma who died in 2019. And grief for the person I used to be and will never be again due to an illness many act like I'm faking, it's in my head, or just downright condescending.
    My mom texted again to say goodnight. I have not replied. It was a stupid Bitmoji again. It hurts like hell seeing it. My heart feels stomped on.
    On top of the emotional pain, the physical pain keeps getting worse daily. It was a little better yesterday and I had hope, a tiny bit of light at the end of tunnel, it was swiftly put out. I was stupid to have hope. Abled body people do not get what it's like to start to have a tiny bit of hope that you're body is going to behave, not be your fucking prison, then it get snatched away. I'm losing hope and I think I should just forget about getting better. I'm back in darkness. I can't be positive or find a silver lining right now. Not with this. I can't even joke about it anymore. It's hell. It's literal hell.
    I long to do things and go places. I want to go to the library, I want to go downtown to the library next month for events and things, do pride in June, do the comic con, do things. The harsh reality? I probably won't be able to. I need to accept it. The problem with accepting this is it makes not want to live. This isn't living. This is hell. I hate my body with a fucking passion. It betrayed me more than anyone has in my honest opinion and it's my own fucking body. My mind has betrayed me too. I don't know how to live like this.

    How do you fight your own body and mind when you're trapped with it 24/7?

    Feeling a million things yet I feel as though I'm numb ....... #MentalHealth #Anxiety #Depression #longcovid #CheckInWithMe #Cancer

    I'm not even sure if that makes sense, I'm not really sure of anything right now!today I was told that my urgent referral to get the swollen lump lymph node in my neck may take upto 6 weeks !ive had it since Sept last uear and was palmed off numeroustimes till last week my specialistsaid she was very concerned(and that is being classed as urgent)Due to my previous cancer and treatment before Covid hit and now to the way this is being handled and considering I had Covid and was hospitalised for nearly 6 weeks and since have been suffering Long covid issues I know how serious it is.But I felt so angry that I'm already dealing with all my usual issues,then this catheter in,still retaining, slipped disc so on crutches to get about and everyday and night I am worried sick about if this lump is serious !and now thinking I may have to feel like this for however many weeks/months and then even if it is serious the care at the moment chemo/treatments most people are having to wait months to get anything started due to the way it's all been since covid.I am angry at my body for failing me in the first place ,for getting to this ,I'm angry at having to feel like I'm begging someone to help or listen ,I feel like I've prepared for the worst now anyways and what hope is there to have !I know hospitals and staff have and do do their best and I'm not saying anything against that I'm just frustrated that myself and millions of others and people way worse off than me are suffering even more even when it's serious or terminal. I'm scared ,I'm angry ,I'm frustrated and then I just feel numb because right now I'm here and I'm a Mummy I have to just be as ok as I can which is difficult enough at the minute ........

    What’s your experience with prescription discount services like GoodRx?

    If you have to take prescription medication to manage your health symptoms (there’s no shame in that!), sometimes those prescriptions can be very expensive depending on your health insurance plan and how many medications you have to take.

    To alleviate some of those costs and make it more manageable to get the medication you need, prescription discount services like GoodRx can be super helpful. (Mighty staffer Kat recommends using their mobile app!)

    What have your experiences been like with prescription cost-cutting services? Did they help you save money? Or were they too much work for what the benefits ended up being?
