A while ago a friend of mine shared a video and I thought I'd share it with you guys. It is not about Lymphedema as such but about not giving up. It is about a man who thought he'd never walk on his own again. Everyone had given up, exept one. Some Lymphedema patients find themselves in the same situation. As some of the comments to my previous posts proves, due to so many doctors being so ignorant of Lymphedema, so many Lymphedema sufferes around the world are wrongly – if ever – diagnosed and ends up in desperate situations. Huge limbs out of control. Amputated limbs. Wheelchair bound. Pain.
A song comes to mind. The beautyful "Don't give up" with Peter Gabriel and Kate Bush. I never paid much attention to the lyrics and assumed it was about love but a couple of years ago I learnt that it is about unemployment. However, I find that many of the phrases in this song are valid for other aspects of life, including life with a serious ilness.
As only one of the three winners of the give-away contacted me with their address I have now picked two others instead of the no-shows. Christina and Hutch, please send me your addresses and I will make sure the books get to you. Yay – congratulations!
