I’ll be on “Aches and Gains” on Sirius XM at 5:30 pm EST Saturday, July 30!

Hello Fashionably ill readers, I am currently away at a Reliv conference.  But I wanted to let you know that I’ll be on the air tomorrow–you can catch me on Sirius XM being interviewed by Dr. Paul Christo of “Aches and Gains.”  We’ll be discussing my coping mechanisms of living with mental illness and chronic pain.  As you know, I live with bipolar 2, myasthenia gravis, polycystic ovarian syndrome, asthma, and prosiasiform dermatitis.

**If you do not have Sirius XM, you can catch my interview later here: http://www.paulchristomd.com/mental-illness-pain/

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!
