Lymph Node loves karate-chopping away nasty bugs and viruses. Thanks for fighting in our honor to protect our immune system! 
It's #Leukemia and #Lymphoma Awareness Month, and all #LymphNodes deserve a round of applause for their honorable service. I work and am a full-time student in addition to being a full-time lymphie, and lately I've been having a hard time striking a balance 😱 help!! What are you balancing with your lymphedema care, and how do you make it work? . . .

#MeanGirls reference aside, I've been trying out the @sigvarisusa CompreFlex Lite for the past few months and it's a cool experience, especially as it's my first time with short stretch -  I'm usually a flat knit chick! I'm going to write a blog post soon with my thoughts but I want to know ➡️ do any of you wear short stretch compression or the CompreFlex? Would love to know your experience! . . .

#lymphedema #lymphoedema #lymphie #lymphielife #StayElevated #thanksgiving #naptime Daily lymphedema care can be time-consuming & therefore a little daunting to keep up with, but it's important we take the time to make the time for our treatments! 💙
