It was a boo-tiful night as the panelists donned costumes for our annual Halloween episode. Everyone displayed their personalities with flair – from Ringmaster Pattie Cornute to the lovely Lippy Butterfly as…well, a butterfly! Perhaps the showstopper was Pale Ginger Pear who created an uncanny replication of Lympha Pants. (You’ve got to see it to believe it!)
Dr. Karen Herbst and Linda Anne Kahn offered an excellent overview of the highlights from the AVLS (American Vein and Lymphatic Society) Conference, including Lympha Press’ groundbreaking symposium on how chronic illness impacts the mental health of both patients and practitioners. Discussion also centered around how to handle cravings, keeping blood pressure down without meds, and how FEAR impacts us all. Siouxie Boshoff had another “drop the mic” moment when she discussed her views on courage. The importance of being enCOURAGEd was also emphasized – which is one of the main goals of the monthly Lipedema Patient Roundtable.
It was a night filled with information and warmth (with some hilarious moments sprinkled in, too.)
