Have you seen the NEW Depression Tool Kit?

2After reading an article I wrote in The Huffington Post in May called “Asian American Mental Health: Confusing Doing Well With Feeling Well,” a graphic designer named Myko Wu, contacted me.  He said the article touched him deeply and he offered his graphic design services if I needed them.  I did!  (I do.)  I’ve never been that great with graphic design.  Myko redesigned the free Depression Tool Kit (a four-page PDF) that readers who subscribe to my monthly newsletter receive upon signing up.  Lots of people wanted a vertical design; he was able to communicate all the info I had in a vertical format.  Here’s what’s in the kit:

  • top 10 tricks for getting stuff done when you are depressed
  • 4 scripts for discussing your depression (or bipolar disorder) with loved ones, professors, and employers

If you’re already subscribed to my newsletter, I sent out the latest edition on Tuesday, August 30, 2016.  My email should be in your inbox (the subject line reads: 5 Tips for Being Reliable When You Are Depressed + Save My New Email!).  Scroll down the email and you’ll see a graphic of the tool kit.  Click on it to see the new PDF.

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!
