NBC News Interviews Me

unnamedHello Fashionably ill readers:

I know I haven’t written anything new in a couple weeks–that’s because I have been recovering from surgery. But that doesn’t mean anything new isn’t happening!  NBC reporter, Monica Luhar of NBC Asian America, recently interviewed me and did a print feature on my work.  It is one of the most comprehensive pieces ever written on my life and work.  You can read her article, “Fashionably ill: Jessica Gimeno Tackles Mental Health, Chronic Pain With Style,” HERE.

I hope to be back soon,




Hi there! I am a patient advocate, writer, and public speaker most well known for my TEDx Talk, “How to Get Stuff Done When You Are Depressed.” As someone who is juggling 5 illnesses: bipolar 2, myasthenia gravis, endometriosis, psoriasis, and asthma, I’m passionate about helping people who navigate life with both chronic physical & emotional pain. If you’re interested in hiring me to speak at your event, check out the CONTACT tab.

    I am a female patient with Myasthenia Gravis for 30 years and I have suffered tremendously because of this disorder. I had a thymectomy twenty five years ago and still have symptoms of MG. I came across Best Health Herbal Centre website after so many years researched through the internet. I was so desperate to find a way to treat this disorder naturally. Thank God for leading me to Best Health Herbal Centre. I started using Best Health Herbal Centre MG herbal formula this year. After 10 weeks of usage, my MG was totally reversed, symptoms like muscle weakness, difficulty swallowing, double vision, fatigue, impaired voice, or shortness of breath disappeared completely..Am now 67 years old living MG free.
