Hello, lymphies..

I’m in what I like to call “a mood” tonight, where I feel particularly down-and-out. I’ve been feeling a little depressed these couple days about my lymphedema. I worry that I don’t do enough to manage mine, and that it will get worse over the years – that it’s out of my control. I’m scared by the hopelessness of it, and the permanence. I’m scared of the future with this condition.

What do you do when you’re feeling particularly low about your condition? How can I cheer up? :(

I found this picture on the internet, and it makes me feel a little better. It’s a nice little mantra to repeat to yourself during particularly tough times, and one that I’m going to try to live & learn:

Be well, and good night <3
