How to talk to people with chronic illness/ chronic pain


– Yes, we know about yoga
-we know about green tea too
– lowering stress is easier said than done
– if a medical condition is brought up in a conversation and the person says they don’t want to talk about it, don’t push them to
– sometimes we getting sick of having to explain what wrong with us so many times ( especially if it’s a long explanation) or sometimes we’re embarrassed to talk about it
– don’t talk about someone’s illness/ pain with out their permission
– unless you are a doctor or training to be a doctor, or handling our meds, don’t ask a lot of questions about our medications
– for the love of GOD please PLEASE don’t say anything along the lines of “ you’re too young to be sick” or “you’re too pretty/ normal to be sick”

All of this goes for people with mental illnesses as well! This is not meant to be a full list so add if you like 🙂
