“To be honest, this cancer surgery was a little more than I had anticipated,” Kathy admitted. “Tonight will be my first night without any narcotic pain killers. Hello Tylenol, my new best friend!”

In a recent interview, Kathy revealed that she had a secret addiction to pills and attempted suicide last year.

“The last time I was in a hospital was in June 2020 when I tried to take my life and overdosed on prescription pills,” Kathy continued in her message. “With over a year clean and drug free, I now know I can do this and anything I want without those devil pills.”

Kathy concluded, “Y’know what? I fear drugs and addiction more than I fear cancer. So, I think I’ll be ok.”

Get well soon, Kathy!
