Lymphedema & Dreams

Postby cjhurt92 » Wed Sep 30, 2009 7:37 pm

I just Thought Of This Today AFter Waking Up From a Dream (I Was Running a Marathon). After Waking From This Interesting Dream. I started Thinking About Dreams And I Realized after 5½ Years Of having Lymphedema and 2½ of having my leg amputated I've Never Had A Dream Of Myself Being Affected By Lymphedema or My Amputation. I'm Always Running,walking,Climbing Doing Normal Stuff...Sometimes I Have Nightmares About My Surgery Or bad Experiances about Being In The Hospital.... Do You Have Dreams/Nightmares About Your Lymphedema?? :roll:

Hey Carlos :)

Don't know if this is from the LE, but I have had some pretty bad dreams about my leg falling off - sometimes in pieces or to them being amputated, that kind of stuff. Not pleasant for sure :!:

About six weeks after being diagnosed with lymphedema in my arm and hand, I met a woman who had an arm much like an elephant leg. I still have nightmares. Other times, I wonder about if that type of change necessitates hand-made tops with velcro closure under the arm. I've wondered about coats. I never saw her again.
