3 Questions For You

nhbmp-logo-300x83Today I continue my blogging for WEGO’s National Health Blog Post Month.  And the question of the day is: Top Three Tuesdays:  List three questions you have for other patients.  Feel free to answer the question by leaving a comment beneath the article.  You can also find me on Twitter here @JessicaGimeno. 

1338365_53550898Question #1:  How do you avoid falling down in the winter with the snow and ice?  Seriously, I want to know.  Five years into my neuromuscular autoimmune disease and I still don’t know how to do this.  I do carry a cane but Erica Kane is less helpful in the winter time–she seems as lost as I do.

Question #2:  Does living with a chronic illness get easier or harder over time?

Question #3:  Do you have any style concerns you’d like me to write about (ex: how to find pants on Prednisone, how to find a good wig during treatment, etc)?  I’m more than happy to cover any subject as it relates to chronic illness.   I wouldn’t be able to tell you how to fix a broken hinge on your door, for instance.

I look forward to learning from you.  Stay tuned for tomorrow’s post as I continue the WEGO Challenge, answering the question about how I survive Black Friday and Holiday Shopping.

–Your Stylist,

Hi, I have five illnesses--bipolar disorder, myasthenia gravis (neuromuscular autoimmune disease), polycystic ovarian syndrome, asthma, and psoriasis. Most of the organs in my body are affected. I'm dedicated to being a stylist for sick women. As someone who has experienced changes in my appearance due to my 12 meds (including Prednisone), I know how hard it can be when your face and body change overnight. (In fact, because of treatment, between 2008 to 2010, I went from a size 0 to a size 10. While I lost the weight, there are permanent changes in my face and body, which I've grown to appreciate.) My blog will also help women deal with other issues like surviving chronic pain and fatigue. Healthy people can also use this blog as a window into what life with illness is like. Let this website be a place where we can draw strength from each other despite our illnesses and find solutions to our everyday challenges!
