How Spoonies REALLY Feel About the Word “Cure” (And What Words Would Be Better Received Instead)

Note: This insightful guest post was written for I Told You I Was Sick by Mary Gutierrez of www.healthyeatingexperts.com. She had asked me if she could write a guest post, and, after looking at some of her articles (which mention the word ‘cure’) I asked if she would write a post about why the word ‘cure’ might be offensive to some people with chronic illness (spoonies). She readily agreed, and this piece is above and beyond my expectations. Thank you so much, Mary!
