3 Truths and a Lie; WEGO Challenge Continues

I am participating in WEGO’s National Health Blog Post Month all November.  Today’s prompt is:  Three Truths and a Lie:  Tell us three things that are true about you, your condition, your Health Activism, or your life. Now tell us a lie. Do you think we will be able to tell the difference? 

MY ANSWER:

1.  I have more friends with Lupus than Myasthenia Gravis.

2.  Myasthenia Gravis (MG) runs in my family; three of my relatives have MG.

3.  When I was hospitalized in 2008 for plasmapheresis, all my “classmates” (people on my floor) were between 70 to 100-years old.

4.  I once attended a New Kids on the Block concert three hours after surgery.

Think you know the right answer?  Tweet me which # you think is false (my Twitter handle is @JessicaGimeno) or leave a comment below.  nhbmp-logo-300x83In tomorrow’s WEGO prompt (3 pieces of advice for caregivers), I’ll be sharing the correct answer.

–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!

      Wow! Margie, you know me so well. You got it on the first try. While MG can be passed down, I am the only one in my family who has it.
