My TEDx Talk is Here!

On May 28, 2015, I gave a TEDx Talk at the National Museum of Mexican Art called, “How To Get Stuff Done When You Are Depressed.”  The talk has just been uploaded.  You can watch it here.  I’d also like your support–please “like” the video (click on the thumbs up on YouTube beneath the video).  Videos with more likes are more visible when people search for subjects (example, YouTube videos on depression).  Please share and like!


But wait there’s more!  In my TED Talk, I focused on 3 principles for being productive.  But, in my free Depression Tool Kit, you’ll find:

  • 10 strategies for getting stuff done when you’re depressed
  • 4 Scripts for explaining your depression or bipolar disorder to loved ones, professors, and employersThe scripts helps you advocate for yourself and navigate sticky conversations.  You can subscribe here at

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!
