About

I’m Kat (Katrina on a Sunday!), and I live in North East Scotland with my husband, 2 bengal girls (Fergie and Jessie) and our 3 working spaniel gun dogs, Bubba, Hamish and Maggie.

I enjoy being outdoors, (which comes with the territory of owning 3 working dogs!), I love to get lost in nature, and I love to be at the beach, its my safe place.

Living with Chronic Pain is something i never thought id have to go through. Its changed my world.

I had my first discectomy back in 2011, which was classed as failed 5 weeks after. I have had all the spinal injections available, all of which failed too! In 2014, i underwent my 2nd discectomy and also had a facet joint removed.

Since then I have been diagnosed with:-

  • Failed Back Syndrome
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • Facet Joint Hypertrophy
  • Enlarged Facet Joints
  • Facet Joint Arthritis
  • Lumbar Spinal Stenosis
  • Hip Bursitis
  • SI joint arthritis

Everything is a learning curve, some days are not easy, and others are slightly better, but I hope to share my story, my every day life and to connect with others going through the same issues – remember you are NOT alone!

Wanna hear what ive got to say – give me a follow!

  1. I’ve been following the mighty page for a few years now, but have only just come across your posts, I too also have degenerative disc disease and hip bursitis as well as fibromyalgia and fractures to my facet joints! I am in to my 8th year of dealing with chronic pain and although I have gotten better at coping, most days are hard. I’m a 32 year old married mother of two young kids, my daughter who turns 9 this year has never known me to not be in pain, and that is one of the hardest parts to deal with.

    Anyway sorry for waffling I just wanted to say hi and thank you for sharing your journey with us and putting this horrid condition out there.
    Gentle hugs

    1. Hi Clare. Thanks so much for your lovely comment! I cant believe just how similar our lives and conditions are (apart from me not having kids!), and I too am in my 8th year.

      I’d love to stay in contact so please keep in touch!
