Things not to say to someone with a Chronic Illness

I found this image the other day and thought it was absolutely perfect. Having a chronic illness means you get these statements all the time.

When I returned to work after my flare up, I had 18 of these. From you sleep to much, You don’t look sick and you’re just stressed.

How many can you tick off? Every time someone says one of these too you just remember they obviously don’t know what you go through every day. We are strong people, even when we are in pain we continue on with a smile on our faces. Other’s go home with a little headache, we go home when we can no longer stand.
