What is A Chargie? Chronic Illness Terms Explained

A Chargie is a chronic illness warrior. A person who suffers from invisible illness, chronic pain, chronic fatigue or birth defects. We all understand each other and support each other here at The Unchargeables.

Another term that is often used to describe a chronic illness warrior is Spoonie. That term comes from the Spoon Theory (Click the link to read more about that).

Chargies understand what other Chargies are going through in terms of their chronic illness struggles. We support each other and cheer each other on. We celebrate the little wins in life; we call those Chargie wins. For example, when you washed your hair after not being able to for ages. Or when you left the house and did a chore that seems meaningless to normal people, but we understand the immense energy it takes to get these simple tasks done.

We will celebrate these with you.

Here are some of the things our Chargie members have to say about the community.
