I wanted to write these out because it’s so important for people who are not chronically ill to see how ridiculous and hurtful these kind of statements are. Being chronically ill is nothing like having a cold, being hung over or just being generally tired from lack of good sleep.
Truth is; if you haven’t been chronically ill, you don’t know what it is like.
These are the things people say to your face. Can you imagine what they say behind your back when you’re not around? If you’re chronically ill, what kind of things have people said to you?
