In short, Yes. Lipoedema changed my life.
Changed my point of view on what is essential in our lives. Because of my condition, I understood how powerful my minds are and how vital my self acceptation is.
Comparing our self to perfect Instagram pictures wasn’t the best thing to do.
In the beginning, I was putting myself into a deep depression mood just because my legs are bigger than somebody else. I was putting myself into the victim position because of daily pain and no understanding around. I quit my job because I couldn’t stand on my feet all day. But when sadness and anger didn’t help, I realised that if my body is in pain, I’m the only one who can support them.
I started observing my body, made essential notes as the pain grew worse.
I have started a nutrition advisor course to help myself understand the whole process in our body. I was curious about how my body works. How our digestive system works and what I need to full 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 hold off overwhelming emotion.
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 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, 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.
