Today I worked eight hours at the pie shop, and my legs are swollen as anything. If you can’t tell, my right leg is the one with lymphedema, and the left one is the “normal” one, although today it is almost just as swollen. I’m upset that the left one is swelling, as I’ve always counted on that one being the “good leg.” With both puffy and swollen, I feel like there’s nothing great about me or my legs.

Oh, well. Instead of worrying about it anymore, I’m elevating them and laying on my sofa (my new 7-week old kitten is sleeping on my belly as I write this). I’m also going to plan on making an appointment to be fitted for a new garment soon, because I don’t think it’s good for my leg(s) to keep swelling like this..
