I cannot expect people to understand the physical and mental/emotional pain that my genetic lyphedema causes. They have a class where young women can experience feeling pregnant by wearing a constructed device replicating a baby. I have often thought if for one week each person had to work with 15 to 60 lbs on the bottom of ones leg, working, walking,bathing,shopping-perhaps then there would be an understanding. 01/01/14
