I’ll Be Back Tomorrow/Facebook

Hello FI readers,


I just started a new Facebook page for this blog.  I also went to Debate for the first time in three weeks.  I’m officially out of hibernation after weeks of fighting problems with a cold complicated by previous damage to my ears and nose.  Hooray!  Fresh air.  But the thing is I had/have a lot of things to catch up on so I missed making a new post today.  But I will be back tomorrow writing about mental health and an epiphany I had after a friend’s suicide when I was 19-years old. 

In the meantime, you can join me and other FI peeps on Facebook.  I have a new Facebook page for this blog, and would like to get 500 Likes before Christmas.  On my Facebook page I have memes–not featured on this website–aimed at laughing at pain.  painpartyAs you know, I think laughter is an important part of survival–whether it’s illness or other trials in life.  JOIN us here https://www.facebook.com/fashionablyill.  Tell your friends about it too!  You can meet other fantastic people too.

I’ll be back.  (Was gonna post a picture or gif of The Terminator but it seems too violent in retrospect.)

–Your Styist,

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!
