Shirt Image ID:
Solid crew cut unisex short sleeve t-shirt available in a variety of colors. The design is about 5-6 inches wide, in the upper middle part of the shirt: "chronically badass" is written in a white, cute modern script font. It is split between two lines, with "chronically" on the first line and "badass" on the second line. The Spoonie Sister Shop crossed spoons symbol (in white) is just above the words, centered. Design is printed in white on all t-shirt color choices except for heather prism ice blue and white (in which case the design will be printed in black).

Your shipping address can be changed only BEFORE it has been shipped. Please message me via Etsy conversations to correct your address ASAP and I’ll be happy to update it for you! :)

What is a “spoonie”?

A “spoonie” is an endearing term for someone with chronic illness(es)! It comes from a blog post called “The Spoon Theory” written by Christine Miserandino, in which she describes what it’s like to live with chronic illness to a friend. Basically spoons = energy, and a spoonie is someone who has a limited amount of spoons (energy) to spend per day. You can google “the spoon theory” to learn more! :)

My Sweatshirt Is Stiff & Has White-ish Markings. What Can I Do?

Don't worry, this is a natural part of the printing process! Simply run it through the wash (machine wash cold, inside-out, gentle cycle, with like colors). The sweatshirt will soften up, and the white markings will go away! :)

My Shirt Has A Strange Square Marking On It?

Don't worry, this is a natural part of the printing process! Simply run it through the wash (machine wash cold, inside-out, gentle cycle, with like colors). The shirt will soften up, and the markings will go away! :)

You may request a change of design or product only within the first 2 HOURS of submitting your order! After two hours, unfortunately it is too late to change.

Love these shirts!! I order them in sizes too big for me because I have severe nerve pain that is set off by most fabrics but these shirts are so soft I wear them all the time and love them.

This short is extra soft which make it easier to wear for people with chronic illness. It arrived quickly and fits as described.

So soft!! I love this shirt.

This long sleeve tee is part of my second order from this shop & is my favorite of them all!! That's hard to do, considering how much I love everything I've received! The quality is amazing, the material is so soft that my sensory sensitivity is a non issue, and the fit is like it was tailored for me specifically!! There is also an easy rip tag so you won't be bothered by the tag if that's a concern. The long sleeve tee fits the same as all of her other short sleeve tees. The sleeves are longer than the average long sleeve tee I've owned. With my arms at my side the sleeve covers my hands with only about an inch of my fingertips sticking out. Absolutely perfection as far as I'm concerned. Will definitely be making a third order soon! :)
