Disabled/Chronically Ill utenti, what’s the worst piece of advice someone has given you to “cure” your illness/disability?

When I tell you I have chronic daily migraine, please don’t tell me about your headaches. Don’t tell me about your sisters in laws hair dresser. Just agree that it’s awful and tell me you hope I am having a low pain day.

Vitamins instead of Ritalin for ADS. Also Vitamins for Autism. Also, never ever get vaccinated because Autism. My mom is fun

Yeah, no. I have ultrasound and bloodwork results that say something much different…
