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? 


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,

    I just read your “three truths and a lie ” I would have to say #2 was your lie-am I right?

      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.
