Interviews

Every person's story is worth telling.

There is no definitive lymphedema or lipedema experience.

From veterans and athletes to college students and parents, life with these conditions is as varied as the people who live with them. Hear from real patients as they share their stories, in their own words.

Finding Joy Despite Pain: The Kim Wilson Interview

Published: 16 November, 2020

Kim Wilson doesn’t have lipedema, but her message of pressing through pain to find joy resonates. She’s had chronic pain since age four and painful lipomas showed up after having her first child at age 19. Forced to take many medications that didn’t work, the side effects took an even worse toll. By 2014, she was rendered permanently disabled – and it took another four years to finally obtain a Dercum’s diagnosis. How does she manage her condition? You’ll learn about her emphasis on “distraction therapy” and her mission to find even five minutes of joy to offset the pain. Kim has a group, Dercum’s Disease and Other Fat Disorders in Canada, and enjoys the connection with others to help them on their journey.

The Lipedema Channel interviews are brought to you by Lympha Press, which makes the Optimal Plus. This is a pneumatic compression device cleared by the FDA for the treatment of lipedema in the US.
