Top Five Things Not To Say To A Teen With Chronic Illness (and some responses):

1)   “But you don’t look sick”

Responses:

a.     “And you don’t look stupid. Oh well, guess we were both wrong.”
b.     “What exactly does sick look like?”

2)   “Aren’t you kind of young to be using a wheel chair, walker, cane, etc.”

Responses:

a.     “Aren’t you kind of young to be so ignorant?”
b.     “It’s a new fashion trend. It’s all the rage in London. It must not have made it to America yet.”

3)   “You just want attention.”

Responses:

a.     “Yes because having to find handicap accessible entrances/exits is so much fun. So is fainting. I really recommend it.”
b.     “There are easier ways to get attention. Like being a mean girl/boy for example.”

4)   “You sure do sleep a lot. You should try to get out and do stuff more.”

Responses:

a.     “Why do you think I’m so pretty? Because I get my beauty sleep. Maybe you should try it sometime.”
b.     “Well as Twitter says; sleep and Netflix are bae.”

5)   “Why aren’t you better yet?”

Responses:

a.     “I’m a method actor and I have an audition for Red Band Society coming up.” b.     “What part of chronic do you not understand? Go pick up a dictionary.”

I hope you liked these and found them useful, or at least funny! If you have any more or better ones post them in the comments :)
