Still frustrated by lymphedema

All the holiday cooking has not given my poor hand a chance to come down in swelling. I have requested a referral for manual lymphatic drainage and my first appointment is Sept. 25. In the meantime I am so FRUSTRATED when wearing the glove and feeling as though my hand is encased in gigantic rubber band, or when bandaged and feeling unable to do anything. I even had to get a ride to rehearsal tonight because I don't feel safe driving.

I think I will take some ativan and see if better living through chemistry helps adjust my attitude....
