Hi i am 27 i have no job i live at home in bed a lot cause my legs and stomach is like a weight crushing me . I was diagnosed with lymphedema at age 13 and did not notice til age 16 when my legs start to swell up. After Graduation it was harder every single day to go run or walk somewhere i tried getting help from doctors but they said i need to get my legs wrapped everyday to shrink my legs and the problem is it's a 2 person job . At this moment right now i live with my mom and dad both senior years mom is 66 dad is 62. My mom has a bad back but it is getting better my dad works and the wrapping is a constant job , i don't wanna be a burden to the family :( everytime i am wrapped i get cellutis and i get a fever a lot from the infections i get and don't see coming. i live on antibiotics.. i been house bound for 11months caus i can't fit in the car anymore due to the swelling in my legs.. i do better voicing my story then texting but all i ask is just to have a normal life my goal is to be a singer, dancer , actress but can't fight for my goal if i keep getting stuck with this health problem that needs to be taking care just by having surgery whether then putting my parents through working so hard to take care of me when it is time they need to have there alone time and for me to be out... my insurance won't cover the surgery... so Please help ... i am longing for a life of happiness not to live in pain
