27 Horror and Halloween Chronic Illness Gifts for Spooky Spoonies

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.

These Halloween chronic illness t-shirts and sweatshirts are frightfully festive!

Now this is true horror — being told yet again that yoga will cure my chronic illness. Nope, it’ll just make me dislocate joints like that half-rotted latex skeleton I pulled out of an old box of Halloween decorations. If you can relate, you’ll love this shirt.

Spooky Spoonie Stickers, Enamel Pins, and Badges

 

One of the unique horrors of having a chronic illness is being told “your labs are fine” when you’re feeling like death. Sometimes we wish for bad test results because at least then we’d have answers.
