March is Lympedema Awareness Month and I want to share my personal testimony with you. I am a survivor who has been hiding this disease for over 50 years, I have lympedema and I am a 50 + year survivor. I want to come clean about this issue that changed my life when I was 14 years old. I don't think I would have told my story had I not seen Kathy Bates on the Dr. Phil Show sharing her story that she too was a lympedema survivor. I love her as an actress and I love her even more knowing we share this dreadful disease that causes so much "misery". When I turned 14 my left ankle began to swell "out of the blue". My mom took me to a vascular surgeon who specialized in lymphedema. He took me under his wing and worked tirelessly to research the cause. He fitted me with a compression stocking. I was given a compression pump to use at home. I took water pills to reduce the fluid retention, stopped eating anything salty and I slept with my leg elevated at night. All to no avail. Nothing worked. So I accepted my condition as my new normal and began hiding my legs. Never wearing dresses, no matter what the occasion. When I turned 50 my right leg began to swell and then last year lymphedema reared it's ugly head in my left hand. I can't hide my hand so I must let go of the secret I've kept for over 50 years. I have lymphedema and I am a survivor. The blessing is it does not cause me any pain. I have learned to live with it. I don't let lymphedema define me or stop me from living my best life now. #nothidinglymphedema
