A leg by any other name would be as big.

I guess it's time to introduce Bertha, my previous post might make a little more sense.  Some women name their boobs, I name my legs.  My skinny "normal" leg is Tiffany who I imagine would be a cheerleader and a runner.  And then there is my lymphedema leg Bertha, who bakes likes science.  Ok I know that is so stereotypical, but it's makes me laugh and makes other people feel awkward.  I mean they named a golf club "Big Bertha" so really I'm just following suit.  Bertha has been with me since 2007 and isn't going away anytime soon, so it was only proper she be named.  We have a love hate relationship, but in the end she is a big part of my life and according to my husband "his favorite leg in the world."  Yes you can "awwww" now.  And yes I hit the jackpot with him.  XOXO-Allie

    Thanks ��

    1. I love lympie limb names. I'll hopefully be updating my blog more frequently with my find or suggestions. Right now I am in to leggings with details, like a moto legging. I just ordered another pair, so crossing my fingers they work! I always look for a lot of stretch in pants and instead of trying to disguise my leg, I always wear skinny pants/jeans and just embrace it. But, I know my leg is quite larger than many lymphie legs. Best of luck and thank you for your comment :)
