This post is a collection of what to say to someone with a chronic illness. To be clear, it’s a collection of the RIGHT things to say to someone with a chronic illness because WRONG things are said way too often. All of the graphics in this post as well as the idea for this came from Her Foggy Mind, a Swede that I love on Instagram – her IG handle is linked here, and her blog is here (she doesn’t blog much though).
I wanted to write this post because my mom has fibromyalgia. I know that I usually don’t say the right thing to her,. Heck, I struggle with saying the right thing to anyone most of the time. That’s why I write posts about the right things to say (like to us with disabilities), the wrong the things to say (to us deaf), and what to say to someone who has a child with Down syndrome.
I’d like to get this right, and I found this really helpful.
