Lipedema psyche - 5 thoughts of a lipedema patient

Lipedema psyche

There are many Thoughts in my head. In my own little universe and sometimes I completely disappear into it. Pull me back into my world and think. Thoughts circle and you can't always be stopped - That's Life!

5 thoughts of a lipedema patient lipedema mode lipedema psyche

If you didn't circle
would I stand still then?

1. Be healthy. I would really like to be healthy. I don't have to worry about my legs and arms. Live simply! But can this disease keep me from life or do I keep myself away? Am I my own brake where possible? Where's the gas pedal? Where is the navigation device? I get lost too often ...

2. Work, family, sport, nutrition - be perfect. I try hard to meet expectations. My own and those of others. But actually I'm only accountable to myself. I keep telling myself that, but I don't understand.

3. I have hope! That's what makes me happy and keeps me alive. It can only get better. But that's also what scares me. What if my hopes fizzle out? Hiss and away! What do I have then? Just the little dreams in which I dance like an elf, but is that enough?

4. I rub myself up for this life. I turn in circles. It's about my illness. The lipedema. But is it also about me? Where am i staying I want to help others, support them and advance them. Sometimes I should try the same thing on myself.

5. Yes, I accept my illness. I tell everyone who asks about it. Nobody sees that I sometimes sit there in the evening and am desperate, don't know what to do and leave my tears free. My little facade holds up - showing weakness is not allowed in this society.

  • Dear Anja,
    I think everyone with lipedema knows exactly these thoughts.
    Sometimes you feel so alone with it that sometimes I feel like it's tearing me apart.

    These are the thoughts that define us. Make us human.
    It is important that we get up again and carry on.

    Stay the way you are ♥

    Kind regards

  • Hello, my name is Steffi. I'm a very funny person ... ..with the clinical picture of lipedema ... I have a big problem.I suffered from it for a very long time (50 today) without knowing it. Until my doctor said at the check up ... Ms. Beyer stay like you are Belatungsfahrradfahren 200Watt… it's kind of cool… but you were born too late… I would have been a wise woman earlier (1000 years ago)… who would have survived all…. Great I thought you couldn't do away with 50 kilos 170 high, weighs 139 kilos ... my whole life scorn and spot ... Then where does this humor come from? Why does the cash register only pay for the suction when you can no longer walk ????

  • Hello!
    You all speak to me from the heart. This page gives me new courage. It shows me that I am not alone. Thanks also for the great pictures with the outfits. I think I'm getting in the mood for summer. To show myself as I am instead of sweating dead in jeans…. Although it will be a challenge too. To show myself in a completely new outfit. I thank you all and wish you many positive thoughts.
    Kind regards

  • Hello.
    Me again. Are there any meetings with you? If so, I would like to be there. To have fun, take photos, exchange thoughts and ideas ...
    Kind regards

    • Hello bobble!

      Thank you very much for the kind words. I am glad that we are an inspiration to you and that we can make a difference. That's exactly what we're here for <3 We haven't hosted any meetings yet, but that would be a nice idea in the future 🙂

      Best regards,

  • Thank you Anja for your words! I also recognize myself in them ... Fight against lipedema! Everyone has their own and yet we fight together! Kind regards, Vanessa 🙂 I'd love to meet you guys too! I love your blog and the Instagram account!

  • This is a great contribution Anna ... These are my thoughts again and again, every day ... I often think to myself, why do I have to toil so hard every day? Is that a punishment? The daily motivated is good, but sometimes quite exhausting ... but good it always goes on somehow ... thank you for your thoughts
    Cheers Nicole

  • Hi all!
    I am now almost 63 years old and I was only diagnosed with lipedema on November 21.11.2017, 60. I've always had fat (misshapen legs), since dieting before my 10th birthday, I lost XNUMX kg at that time, I noticed that my legs hurt and that the ankles are like an edge. My arms also hurt and nothing helps!
    I now have the stockings for the legs, lymph drainage and a lymph device has been applied for. The rehab application is here and is almost completely filled out.
    Still, I'm a little desperate and have already crushed a few tears!
    I hope it won't be too bad!

    • Hello Monique,
      I understand your concerns and your fear. But you are already on the right path and it will definitely be all right. It is important that you get involved in the whole thing and if you feel like crying, then just let it. But you will see that it will definitely get better soon and then it will look more like sunshine again 🙂 Feel tightly pressed for once.
      Greetings Tanja

  • Dear women, hello. Like you, I also suffer from lipoedema. I know how hard it is to be well dressed. With this in mind, I develop fashion for us. I'm still a fashion design student and will finish in May 2019. As soon as I have my webpage, share it with you.
    I wish everyone a good day. And get well soon!!! E. Egger
