#8: Zoe Pearce - Living with Lipoedema

In this episode, Zoe Pearce (@thickthighs.positivevibes) talks about living with Lipoedema in a world where it's often treated like a fake condition.
In this episode, I get to have a conversation with the wonderful Zoe Pearce, a 28-year-old mother of two from the north of England who was diagnosed with Lipoedema at the age of 24, although it was something she recognises as having had since her teenage years. For the last few years, she’s been trying to do as much as possible to spread awareness about the chronic condition, whilst at the same time learning to accept her body. In this episode, we talk about what Lipoedema actually is and how it affects her, and why it’s a condition that so many people (including medical professionals) treat as something that isn't real.

Zoe can be found on social media @thickthighs.positivevibes. If you want to learn more about Lipoedema please check out the charities Lipoedema UK and Talk Lipoedema if you're from the UK, or the Lipedema Foundation if you're based in the US.
