Before I met bilateral lymphedema, I already had cerebral palsy and other illnesses that keep me partially homebound. I have a good lymphedema therapist, but no way to apply compression since I live alone, and Medicaid rules don't let my personal care attendant put on compression bandages. There's also been backlash against my therapist methods, but I know they are doing me some good. Lymphedema more than anything else seems to push me to the end of my rope. I don't know what to do about it. I want the compression and, more than that, I deserve it.
