I had the privilege today to share my story publicly for the first time. I must say it was quite exciting and scary all at the same time. You never know what people will think when you put yourself out there. In my case, I was greeted with love and compassion. My co-workers shared some of their lymphedema stories with me that really touched my heart.
This new journey of self-exposure has really opened my eyes to see the world from a totally different perspective. Once I looked at the world to be cold and uncaring to some degree but now I have more hope in mankind.
