15 Memes That Might Make You Laugh If You're Sick of Being Sick


One of the most frustrating and difficult aspects of chronic illness to cope with is the fact that it’s, well, chronic. Being sick nonstop and having to constantly deal with symptoms, doctor appointments, insurance companies, new medications and treatments can be downright exhausting. Mighty contributor Cat Thurmon perfectly articulates this challenge in her essay, I Am So Sick of Being Sick. “I’m getting worn down, physically, mentally and emotionally,” she writes. “I must hold onto the thought that this too shall pass.”

If you’re struggling with feeling worn down by living with chronic illness, you’re not alone. With conditions that are lifelong, sometimes one of the best ways to “lighten the load” is by taking a few moments to simply connect with other chronic warriors facing similar struggles through a bit of humor. So if laughing is one of the coping mechanisms in your toolkit, check out the following memes.
