Have you heard of AXSChat? On Tuesday, August 2, I was the guest at their twitter chat. On Twitter, you can search for them by looking up #AXSChat.  Their chat is all about disability and inclusion.  Before the chat, the wonderful hosts of AXSChat, Neil Milliken and Antonio Santos (Debra Ruh could not be there) interviewed me.  I talk about how helping someone suicidal at my previous job motivated me to start Fashionably ill ®.  We discuss how mental health is physical health and physical health is mental health.  I also talk about being stylish when you’re chronically ill and your weight is beyond your control.  We also discuss how both men and women have body image issues.  I learned a lot from the #AXSchat community.  Enjoy the video below!  And join the #AXSchat community on Tuesdays at 8 pm London/3 pm EST on Twitter.

Here is a tape of that interview we did using Google Hangout:


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.
