4 Tips on Celebrating a Holiday Alone (my article in The Huffington Post)

http://www.dreamstime.com/stock-image-worried-woman-setting-table-celebration-day-image34507161Hi all, I just had my first article published in The Huffington Post–in their Healthy Living section.  In it, I talk about how people with compromised immune systems (like me) sometimes miss Thanksgiving and other holidays.  I also quote readers of this blog who share different perspectives on the issue–to be with loved ones or not.  Check out my article here.  Feel free to leave comments at the end of it on HuffPost’s website.  Have a great Thanksgiving!

–Your Stylist, Jessica Gimeno



Hi, I have five illnesses--bipolar disorder, myasthenia gravis (neuromuscular autoimmune disease), endometriosis, 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!
