    Spoon Theory

    The Spoon Theory by Christine Miserandino


    I thought with a new board it might be handy to have a spot to direct newbies to/discuss the wonderful analogy that is the spoon theory. (Actually, I was originally going to add it to the link directory, until I realized it was just for member blogs. So here's as good as anything!)

    The original post links to a blog that explains it.

    The blue words in the post are a link to "The Spoon Theory."

    Genius! I don't have lupus but I do have Hashimoto's Thyroiditis and when my levels are off everything goes haywire. If I work 8 hours I *have* to sleep right after work. I just do. Which of course screws up the rest of my day / evening. It's hard to get people to understand that I'm not lazy etc that I don't intend to forget crap or be so scatterbrained, rather it's my body being weird and leading to that. Oh bless you spoons :D

    The spoon theory works for pretty much most 'non visible' illnesses. It describes my MS to a tee......
