Did Lipoedema Change my Life?

Did Lipoedema Change my Life?

In short, yes, Lipoedema changed my life.

It changed my point of view on what is essential in our lives.  Because of my condition, I understood how powerful my mind is and how vital my self acceptation is. Comparing ourselves to perfect Instagram pictures wasn't the best thing to do.  In the beginning, I was putting myself into a deep depression just because my legs are bigger than other people's.  I was victimising myself because of my daily pain and no one understanding me.  I quit my job because I couldn't stand on my feet all day. But when my sadness and anger didn't help, I realised that if my body is in pain, I'm the only one who can help it heal. 

I started observing my body and made essential notes as the pain grew worse.  I have started a nutrition advisor course to help myself understand the processes at work in my body. I was curious about how my body works. How our digestive system works and what I need to fill my body with good nutrients. I started to care about my health more, make some nutritional changes, and recharge specific exercises to help. I started meditation to clear my mind and focus on the positives that I could find. As they said, meditation changes our subjective perception and feelings. Meditation helps to condition my mind and helps me hold off overwhelming emotions. I immersed myself in the world of psychology and self acceptation books. I love books and all the wisdom they contain. I started my job at H&B to support others and began a healthy lifestyle. When I started to see some positive changes in my body, I started writing a blog to support and motivate other Lipoedema ladies.

And the most important.

I love who I have become, and how strong and self-confident I am.

So, yes, Lipodema changed my life and helped me to find a way to a healthy and normal lifestyle.

Thank you Lipoedema.
