    Tips for Labor Day & Fun in the Sun

    With Labor Day right around the corner, you’re probably itching to go out and enjoy the sunshine one last time before summer is over. Consider some of these quick tips to manage your lymphedema while on vacation:
    If you’re going to travel via airplane or to higher altitudes, remember to wear your compression sleeve and glove. Wear one hour before flight, throughout flight, and one hour after flight.
    As always, wear plenty of sunscreen (and not just on your affected limb)! If you’re planning a trip to the beach or pool, make sure your sunscreen is waterproof and at LEAST SPF 20. Make sure to moisturize your affected limb in conjunction with sunscreen – preferably with a paraben-free formula.
    Enjoy the water! While you’re at it, do some stretching in the water as it will provide extra support for your joints. After leaving the water, dry, moisturize and wear your compression garment(s) on your affected limb.
    Consider natural insect repellent to prevent insect bites on your affected limb. Insect bites are almost inevitable in the summertime, so it’s a great idea to have bacitracin and bandaids on hand to clean and cover any bites/cuts you may get. Camping or hiking? Make sure to bring a specialized first aid kit with the above listed products, along with some benadryl or hydrocortisone cream. If your doctor agrees, bring a prescription for antibiotics with you just in case infection hits.


    Staying hydrated is key! Remember to drink plenty of water, and avoid salty foods when you can. Have you considered flavoring your water with fresh fruit and herbs? Try shaking things up with one of these flavored water recipes: https://greatist.com/health/flavored-water-healthy-recipe
    Avoid overheating your affected limb. Stick to lukewarm/cold showers whenever possible to prevent this from occurring. If you feel this is happening, wrap a cold wet towel around your limb and elevate it.
    Check for indentations in skin of your affected limb(s) from clothing. Non-constrictive clothing will allow for more air circulation.
    If you’ll be participating in sports activities, remember to pace yourself! Monitor your affected limb, if it feels tight, achy, heavy or fatigued, then take a break and jump back in when you feel ready.
    Be conscientious about compression garment care. Sunscreen, repellent and various lotions can cause fabric to deteriorate therefore, be diligent about washing any compression garments you own as needed.
    For Leg Lymphedema: If you will be doing a ton of walking on vacation, wear shoes that fit well and won’t blister your feet to prevent infection from occurring. As another line of defense against possible infection, consider using antifungal powder for your shoes.
    Follow these tips and you should be smooth sailing during your vacation.

    Happy Labor Day everyone!

    Effective powerful love spell to get your Ex lover back urgently after breakup/divorce!.
    Hi everyone,
    I’m so excited. My ex-boyfriend is back after a breakup, I’m extremely happy that will are living together again.
    My boyfriend of a 4yr just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant. I have cried myself to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy.
    I was really upset and I needed help, so I searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and I did it then he did a spell for me. 17 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again…
    All thanks to Dr Ahmed if you have any problem contact Dr Ahmed now and I guarantee you that he will help you. Here’s his contact.

    This are things I did not overlook while I was listing the things I wanted from a love spell in my relationship after breakup.
    1) I requested that I get back my ex and our relationship last for the rest of our earthly lives.
    2) I asked that the love spell should strengthen EACH of our abilities that we may utilize them in order to sustain our relationship which I so hope to become a marriage one day.
    3) That we BOTH may resolve all conflicts with peaceful words, while remaining cognizant of one another’s feeling and come to a compromise when benefits all parties involved.
    4) That whatever haunts HIM in his childhood, that he can let that go and he know that I hold none of that against him and I accept and love him for the person he is today.

    Through all of this with Dr. Wakina via dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com, we were worked on to be humble and accept accountability for our actions. I have apologized for my incompetent behaviors. on the other hand, I can count the amount of time HE has apologized to me. The love spell made us understand that relationship is not about a tit-for-tat affair. An equal relationship is what we have at the moment, HE holds himself to the same level of accountability where I am concerned after the graceful love spell from Dr. Wakina.
