Huge servings of gratitude and appreciation were at the pre-Thanksgiving Lipedema Patient Roundtable. How to stay motivated to “get up and move” and how PMS impacts lipedema patients were topics of conversation, as was how to don compression and how to keep hose from sliding down. Many new attendees had questions about preparing for a doctor’s visit and how to go about getting a diagnosis.
Several members of the audience shared excitement about getting their new Lympha Press pump — and powerful conversation about not judging yourself for how your body looks brought emotions to the surface. This post from April Sluder resonated: “I don’t need to explain my body. Neither do you. It doesn’t matter why my body looks like this… we are no less or no better than anyone else because of our appearance, size, or physical ability.”
Expressions of gratitude for the Roundtables and the support and love so evident in these and other gatherings of the community ended another beautiful hour.
