- lymphielife@livplantiful thank you — your kind words mean so much! 💙💙
- obhorak@lymphielife I have MDD but I do believe that some of my depression is from the little joys lymphedema takes from me like finding shoes that fit no matter my foot size. I posted about the denial of lymphedema a few days ago on Instagram...
- lovinglifewithlymphedemaThank you for sharing. ❤️❤️❤️
- lymphielife@lovinglifewithlymphedema @kkharper 🤗💙💙💙
- lymphielife@obhorak I can relate to your comment - I think depression and lymphedema can feed into one another, and it can feel really debilitating sometimes... Wishing you the best as you fight through 💙💙
- amumandthensomeGreat post Alexa. I felt really emotional reading it as I try to imagine how Lucia might feel at times in the future. I love this line: 'Instead of resenting my leg, I recognized that it just needs a little extra help sometimes, kind of like I do.' We tell Lucia that...that her lymphoedema leg just needs a wee bit of help. Good to read experiences of others to help us try and understand better as her parents xx
- lymphielife@amumandthensome I'm glad the post resonated with you! Lucia is so, so lucky to have parents who work so hard to understand (and anticipate) her experiences living and growing with lymphedema. That's great you're teaching her acceptance so early - that her lymphie leg isn't "broken" (and neither is she!), it just needs 'a wee bit of help' :) She is one tough cookie with a great support system in place!! 💙
- amumandthensome@lymphielife thank you for such kind comments...that means so much to us coming from you as we can sometimes feel so clueless about what Lucia is going through. You are a massive support to us xx
