So far, I’ve heard well-meaning but uninformed people say just about every one of these “helpful” things – so I could pretty darned quickly fill out my own Bingo card. How about you?
P.S. If you have ever at any time found yourself saying any of these out loud to a person living with a chronic illness that you know nothing about, consider first learning more about it before opening your mouth. Start by reading “But You Don’t Look Sick”, the essay by Christine Miserandino that started the Spoonies movement of patients living with invisible illness. You’re welcome.
