My soul Tucha 🐈‍⬛💉🩸💊🧬🩺🩻

Hello dear Mighties! I haven't posted for a while..many things have happened, but now I'm suffering, my love, my soul, my companion, my cat, my Tuchenka has suddenly stopped eating, and now she's been in hospital for 5 days .. it's most likely she's got cancer, lymphoma🥺...but it's not all, they found a small bullet😖It's was a shock.. It's very old, she must had got it before I took her to my place(more than 10 years ago) ,it doesn't hurt now etc..but the fact itself is awful ((( my poor cat(( my poor Tuchka💔
Now we are waiting for the results of the biopsy...she's in pain (not indurable due to analgetics) and she's been fed through stoma...I don't know what to do😣 I don't want to prolong her suffering and at the same time there's a chance to help her and she's still lively(if I could say so), doctors say she's curious and sometimes tries to get out of the box(or cage , the place ,where she is held at hospital, I don't know how to call it properly ) ❤️‍🩹#Depression #MightyPets #ChronicFatigue #ChronicIllness #MultipleSclerosis

I hate myself #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder #Anxiety #BingeEatingDisorder #MajorDepressiveDisorder

I literally hate myself. I hate my body. I hate my messed up mind. I hate the pain I feel every day. I wish I didn't exist. I feel like a burden to my husband. (He is the best husband ever...seriously). I feel lonely. I have no friends, not one. Acquaintances yes, friends, no. I have no one to talk to except my husband and I refuse to burden him with my messed up, crazy feelings. I feel therapy is a waste of time and energy. My best friend, my cat, is dying of intestinal lymphoma. I am in constant pain in my back and hip. How pathetic do I sound. Anyway, sorry to bother. #MajorDepressiveDisorder #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder

See ya in 2024, Mighty fam!

It's hard to believe that this is my last Mighty post of 2023. 😱

You may be thinking to yourself, “Kat, it’s only December 8, where are you going?!” Well, even Mighty staffers have to take medical leave!

I’m having my 16th surgery next week and I’m not exactly looking forward to it. I’ll be missing the holidays with my family and friends again, and more importantly, missing all of you and my Mighty team. But I’m hoping for a short hospital stay and reveling in some boredom while I recover, which is a feeling I haven’t experienced (but need to) in a very long time!

As is my tradition, I tend to end the year by writing a very sappy post to this community about how you changed my life over the past 365 days. Admittedly, this year was one of the worst on record for me. Here’s what you supported me through: six months of surgical recovery from my emergency surgery last year, two deaths in my family, an earth-shattering lupus diagnosis for myself and a lymphoma diagnosis for someone I care deeply about… believe it or not, that’s only some of the list. 😅

But that’s not really what I want you to walk away with as 2023 winds down. Because The Mighty is not just about me, it’s about all of us. Here’s what I want you to fold up and pocket:

You are, bar none, the best people I know! Oftentimes in an inaccessible world, it’s easy to look at ourselves and say, “I am not worthy. I shouldn’t be here.” But have you ever thought about it the opposite way? That not only do you belong in this world but you actually help make it better? In a lot of ways, joining The Mighty is like taking a bet on yourself. Daring yourself to find connection and reach out for support. I watch you do it daily and it keeps me going.

As the new year dawns, I hope you continue to take bets on yourself — to be better, to give yourself more grace, to steady a ledge for someone else, to share your story in a way that breaks stigma. In all of the places in your life where you feel invisible, I want you to know that’s not how it is here. I see you, completely — and I love you all so much for it. Thank you for making me better, too.

Be kind to each other and yourselves. (Mighty staffers @skyeg and @mightymentor Nina will take very good care of you, too!) See you in 2024! 💪

Im shooken up this time TW…

He contacted me again this time sent me many different videos and told me how much he hates me. I’m so sick of this my ex rapist continues to stalk online social media after 3 years I reported him to the police 👮‍♀️ a few months ago and looks like I have to go again. All I want is to move on with my life and have something go right which it really hasn’t for the last 10 years. #hodgins lymphoma survivor #RapeSurvivors

I'm new here!

Hi, my name is WonderWoman_1973. I'm here because I want to be able to not only share my own experiences with others, but also learn about others' experiences by asking lots of questions and comparing experiences to learn more! Support from a community of people who have things in common with one's self can be one of the greatest "physicians."
