Emily McDowell - Treatment on the Internet Empathy Card
People who do this are well-intentioned. They're trying to help. And we totally get why people do it.
But if you've been sick, or you've been close to a sick person, you know that people in these situations are generally pretty educated on their treatment options (they have the internet too) and have made the decisions they feel are best for them. It's really exhausting to have to defend your choices to people who are almost never as informed as you are about your condition. And yet.
If you buy a sick person this card, we promise they will a) laugh, and b) feel relieved that you understand.
