Hi there,

twitter-symbol-400x400WEGO asked me to lead a Health Chat tomorrow on Twitter about the holidays with chronic illness.  As of now, we’ll be discussing things like: how to talk to relatives you rarely see about your illness and holiday stress.  What topics would *you* like to talk about? To join us, include #hachat in your tweets.  My Twitter handle is @JessicaGimeno.  Got any questions, leave a comment below.  To invite others, share this article.  (See social media icons on left side of screen.)



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!
