Caring for lymphedema can feel like a full-time job. But it’s a position that doesn’t pay a salary or come with benefits.
So, to help pay the bills in my household, I work for an elected official in New York. I do anything and everything I can to help my boss communicate with the public and the press in a positive and straightforward manner. It’s a 24/7 job. That’s not a complaint, just a fact.
My philosophy is: keep the mind engaged and you will forget about the uncooperative body.
