    What showing up looks like for someone with chronic illness - by Christina Baltais.

    - So what does “showing up” for someone with chronic illness actually look like? These are the ways my online ME/CFS community felt the greatest support, when asked to reflect on instances since their ME/CFS chapter began. These stories illustrate just how important it is, especially during our most difficult times, to have the support from the people around us.
