In the little book I put together, Living Incurably Despite Chronic Illness, (shameless plug, once again) I wrote about what I call “Talking Points,” or pre-crafted answers to tough questions. We’d all like to be able to say no more, no less than needed when put on the spot but that rarely happens to me, so instead I pre-package my answers to common questions/comments ahead of time.
So I was delighted when I came across this March 24th post on the blog, Freckles & All. Faye wrote about having a “trusty little script” that she uses when she is talking about her illness, CFS/ME. I was very glad to find out I’m not the only one who prepares ahead of time! Great post, thanks for the reassurance Faye!
