The Spoon Theory

A superb explanation of what life is like with an “invisible” illness.

I can relate to this more than usual today. Yesterday we went adventuring. I love it when Michael and I go off on spontaneous trips out and end up in completely unexpected places. When we do things like this, naturally I want to make the most of it. I went thundering around like an elephant with its arse on fire; not sparing a thought for my body, its dreadful condition, and how I might feel the following day.

Today I’m paying the price. Because I used all my spoons. Going to have to be careful for a few days.
