June is Lipedema Awareness Month - Consistent Swelling

When I was diagnosed with Lipedema in 2007 it had taken so long to get properly diagnosed that I was at a stage 3, with secondary Lymphedema. 

Spreading awareness is critical; treatments to ease our symptoms are less effective at upper stages. 

For example, I have constant swelling at stage 3. My feet are spared, unlike primary Lymphedema. Lower stages may not have swelling at all.
