Chronic Illness Bingo


This bingo card from the blog Pins & Procrastination captures several responses that can be invalidating to people who have chronic illnesses.

Do you have a chronic illness? Do you currently, or have you ever worked with someone with a chronic illness?  Is there someone with chronic illness in your life?

Perhaps you may have experienced, said, or witnessed some of these responses before. Are there any things you would like to add to the card?

Susie, the writer of the blog has also written two other posts that work well with this board in terms of increasing awareness, being supportive, and repairing damage that may have been done.

Check out 15 Things not to say to someone with a chronic illness or invisible illness, and 10 Things You Should Say to Someone with a Chronic Illness.
