I'm Karla, a Michigan girl living in Tucson, AZ. I'm so glad I found this forum. I have never had the chance to communicate with anyone else who has lymphedema other than my sister, who was diagnosed after I was (BECAUSE I was).

I'll tell you my story in the proper place, but in the meantime, "Hello" :D

Hey Carol

Super welcome to our family here :!: :)

I wrap everyday as part of my daily routine and it realllllllllly makes a big difference for me. Hope you'll try it.

There are resources available to help you learn how to "wrap and roll" :lol: if you need it.

Look forward to getting to know you too :!:

Best
