- CASE FILE
I’ve been diagnosed with lymphedema now for the past 9 years. My life has changed dramatically since this disease has taken over my life.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
Living with lymphedema has affected my life in so many ways. Physically and mentally. My family also suffers because of it. I don’t like to go outside in the summer time cause people stare if I was to wear shorts. So I avoid going out and that affects me socially as well. I have difficulty getting dressed all the time. I stuff my feet into shoes so no one can see how over sized my feet are. I’ve gotten to the point where I deal with the pain and try to move like a normal person. This disease is so tiring and draining there is no cure for it. I know now that I will die before a cure can be found.
