Open Letter Options

My original 'Open Letter' was created, I think, sometime in 1995 - memory fails me here simply because it was so long ago! Since then, much to my happiness, people have adopted it, copied it, adapted it, and done all manner of things with it - both with and without my knowledge.

There are many different versions of the "Open Letter To Those Without ..." available now. These are the two current versions which I have done myself:


You can also order a poster or print version of An Open Letter To Those Without Invisible Chronic Illness ... from No Pity City. These are great to stick on the wall where many people can read them. No Pity City also has many t-shirts and other things with great disability and chronic illness-related slogans you may enjoy.

Major Adaptions

These still have the same inspiration - the original Open Letter To Those Without CFS/Fibro, but are significantly changed from the original:

Same Intention, Different Inspiration

These are similar in spirit to the Open Letter but, as far as I am aware, have been conceived completely separately.
