Honest, helpful and informative
I am new to a diagnosis of lipedema, so I am a sponge for all the information i can get. Thanks for being there to share. This podcast is a good place to learn more.
Educational and Interesting
I’m enjoying the podcasts and learning more about my condition and how to help myself. With so few doctors informed on this disorder I have to do my own research, treatments and advocating. I enjoy hearing the stories of others, even if we are varied types or stages, because there are some commonalities and new tips I can explore. My initial diagnosis was frightening but this podcasts helps me know I’m not alone and provides me hope. Thank you for this safe space.
Educational and exactly what I need!
Thank you for providing the much needed platform to share our experiences, stories and actions regarding our lipedema! There’s strength in community, and that’s exactly what you’re creating!
