For those living with Primary, Secondary & Paediatric Lymphoedema Online & in the Community

New article

I am in the process of writing a new article on depression and isolation that lymphoedema patients feel.  Yesterday I put a request on members group asking how they felt the lymphoedema affects their lives. 

I was well aware that Primary lymphoedema was genetic but for some reason it didn't register how it ran in families.  One of our members tells me that 4 generations of her family have been affected.  this is beyond my comprehension.

The Secondary lymphoedema response was just as powerful but I did not feel there were as many surprises. Probably because I have secondary Lymphoedema.

I hope to finish the article over the weekend.
