Happy New Year - Goodbye 2015 and Hello 2016 and Travel Tip!

Hello there,

It's been a long time since I wrote something. I always wanted to include a picture with every post but that has prevented me to write anything. So I decided to write without including pictures, unless they need it of course.

This new year, I was fortunate to spend it away from home. But staying away from home always poses problems. How could I ensure my legs are elevated? Could I even elevate them? Would the "hosts" like my peculiar requests?

So I decided to go "low-key" and wear my garments to bed. I thought that would be the most easiest and "unobtrusive" way of ensuring good health of my legs. I wouldn't need to bother anyone.

Normally I wear two garments on each leg, Ven Dur Level 3 and Goldpunkt Level 3. So I decided to wear just the Ven Dur as that gives the most effective compression at the lower leg and it is comfortable enough on its own.

After two nights - I have to say wearing garments to bed has been a success. So from now on, if I have to stay somewhere for a short period like one to two nights then I'd wear comfortable garments to bed.  I don't think my legs can handle days in a row in garments.

I hope that helps!
