#HAWMC; I’ll Be Back Soon

I’ll be back soon.  I have been doing #HAWMC prompts everyday this month–answering a new question from WEGO Health.  Even without the challenge, I typically like to do 2-3 articles per week.  However, a few days ago I was asked to give a TEDx mental health talk next month.  I’m very excited to speak.  I’ll be talking about how to get stuff done when you’re depressed.  But that means I need to finish writing the speech.  The old me would have driven myself crazy trying to write the speech and do my daily blogging.  But I’m learning about self-care and that I can’t do everything.  Anyway, I’ll be back ASAP.

Your Turn

How do you practice self-care?

–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!

    I really love the Ted Talks, have recently found them on Netflix. How do I practice self care? Well, by creating “My time” I have a weight loss goal for instance, so my workout time I try to push everything else to the side for, as that’s really important to me. Sometimes people don’t really seem understand that. (can’t you just skip it?) NOPE
    I get a lot of thinking done during that time also.
