Ahh, autumn, the season of change, and my favorite holiday — Halloween! For one night, the veil between this world and the next is thin, and ghosts and ghouls roam freely. The natural world is at its most beautiful, with leaves turning from green to goldenrod to crimson. And goth and spooky spoonies can let our freak flags fly. I’ve noticed that many people with a chronic illness love Halloween. We find ghosts, zombies, and Frankenstein’s monster relatable in a way others might not understand, so it’s not surprising that many of us develop a dark aesthetic and sense of humor. These Halloween chronic illness gifts include both fun and useful items for yourself or a loved one.
