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,

Jessica

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 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.
