“You’re so strong.” I’ve found this is a relatively common phrase of support for someone struggling with a health condition.

I know in my journey with mental illness, I’ve been on the receiving end of this statement often, and I’ve said it myself to many friends who share similar struggles.

I’ve never been particularly averse to the statement, but its meaning has certainly changed for me over the years.
