Defining "Fine"

Image: Me, about to be swallowed by a crocodile. Text: "When someone with a chronic illness says, 'I'm fine.'"When a healthy person says "I'm fine", she/he means: "I'm well, there's nothing wrong, I'm quite content, I don't need anything, it's all good."

When a lupie, or someone else with a chronic illness says "I'm fine",  she/he means: "I don't think I'm about to die right at this minute, but I could be proven wrong."
