Welcome Message

Hi, I’m Cee and welcome to my website.

When I found out I had lipedema and how unknown it is in the United States, I decided I wanted to have a way to reach out to other women, to inform them about lipedema, to reach out to clinicians and educate them about this disorder.  I also wanted to create a place where other women with lipedema can find a home, a place where we can share our experiences and support each other.

I would like to introduce you to this website, because there are a lot of features other than the blog, where I hope you will feel like commenting and sharing some of your experiences.

You may want to check out our About pages. It’s a drop down list from the main menu. You will be able to read my About Cee page, and an About Chris page.

Chris and I have been partners since 1990 and she has been beside me as I learned to cope with my illnesses. I have chronic Lymes disease and nearly died from that three times. Chris is a grief counselor and a writer, and my main support person. I’m hopeful those who support us will gain some wisdom and strength through this website.

You will notice that there is a Cee’s Therapy Timeline regarding my lipedema treatment. Chris is the basic author for this page. It will be updated as often as needed.

Chris is putting together a Resources page where you can find lots of things to read, websites with lipedema information and even a movie. She is also helping me get used to being in front of the camera and we’ve created a page How I Hate Pictures, where you will see me dressed in lipedema fashion, called compression clothing or treatment.

Me with my leg and knee compression, even Maddie, our youngest pug, is cheering me on.

One thing I’ve learned from having a chronic illness is to find something I really enjoy doing and for me it’s nature photography. I am an extremely visual person so I tend to tell stories with my photography. Most of the photos on this website I’ve taken. Chris is also a good photographer and you’ll see her photography as well, usually when I’m in the photo. Here is a link to my Cee’s Photo Challenge blog.
