Living with Lipedema Pain with Cynthia Weller
TItle: Living with Lipedema Pain
Intro: The pain I experience with lipedema, it’s changed my life, and not in a good way, because I was a schoolteacher, and I taught kindergarten and first grade. And if you don’t know about that age group, you’re on the floor a lot, you’re squatting, you’re picking them up, you’re running, literally, after them, and your day is nonstop, and so you’re on your feet. And I did that day in and day out, loved it. Teaching is such a gift that I feel I have been given, and I’m so good at it, but I didn’t really experience any pain.
Our human compassion binds us the one to the other - not in pity or patronizingly, but as human beings who have learnt how to turn our common suffering into hope for the future.
