The “Spoon Theory” has been on my mind all week. I havent yet been able to write about it, because I have SO much to say.
If you have a chronic illness, know someone who does, or you are the caregiver, spouse or parent to someone who does, I encourage you to read the Spoon Theory here.
Since that includes EVERYONE… please come prepared to discuss it! Your homework is to read the theory and think about it.
It would just be easier if you knew what I was talking about without me trying to explain what she says so perfectly.
I promise….. the Spoon Theory is profound. It tells you better than I ever could what every day of my life is like. Not for the same reason (I have MS, not Lupus) but in many of the same ways. And if you are fighting depression, are recovering from surgery, have a chronic illness of any sort…. this piece will speak to you.
