CHRONIC PAIN / INVISIBLE ILLNESS CHATTER:
Things not to say to someone with an invisible illness.  Be aware, be patient, be kind.:

  1. You’re seeking attention (and intentionally trying to take attention away from others)

  2. You’re faking it (the pain just seems to come and go so conveniently… )

  3. Everyone has pain so they get it

  4. You have mental issues. You’re internalizing something.  So… it’s all in your head.

  5. You’re an inconvenience to everyone and stress everyone out.

  6. You upset everyone.  No one wants to tell you because they don’t want to hurt your feelings.

  7. You’re too young for this.

  8. Your behavior is a cry for help.

  9. You’re a drug addict.

  10. You’re selfish.
