This episode is for friends and family of those with chronic illness. We share how everyone on the “outside” can still support those of us with illness. If you’ve been unsure how to act, communicate, or help someone you know with chronic illness, let us share some tips with you today!

We understand our illness can be scary and confusing for you, too. That’s why we’re covering the most important and helpful things we appreciate when friends and family do for us to show their support. And also, what NOT to do. From researching our condition to still inviting us out, there are a lot of ways to support the person you know with a chronic illness. Don’t abandon us, lean in closer, we need each other.
