“Have you tried…?”
Raise your hand if you have a chronic illness and have heard this before? Whether it’s a gluten-free diet, yoga or going vegan. How many of us have gotten unsolicited advice from well-meaning friends, family or even strangers? Somehow, they’ve figured out how to cure our (often incurable) diseases.
This Video of the Week is from one of the famous VlogBrothers. Hank, like his brother, suffers from chronic pain. He has moderate Ulcerative Colitis and has spoken about how he manages the disease in previous videos.
In this, however, he hits the nail on the head about what it’s like to have constant suggestions for finding a cure. Whenever in any doubt, read the title of the video back to yourself. Your illness is not your fault.
