So spoons

For peeps who don’t know what I’m talking about….. living with an illness that seriously affects your function is hard work in itself…..

The spoon theory in brief ….. we have allocated each day an amount of spoons…..

It’s a limited amount of spoons…..

Every time we do something it removes a spoon from the pot….

Even the smallest task steals another spoon……

So eating breakfast…. getting dressed ( not done often) …… having a bath washing your hair….. cleaning your teeth ( I kid you not )… being on the computer…. having a conversation….  it all costs spoons….. reading a book…. gawd reading comments on Twitter or Face Book….. even clear thinking…… every single …. I mean every single function requires spoons…….

 

So you can see just how restricted our lives become….

 

So if you wonder why are writing is a little jumbled at times…. or we can’t talk on the phone ……. or we forget mid sentence what we are writing or saying…… it’s that spoon shortage….. it not that we don’t want to go out and enjoy life to the absolute maximum….. it’s we just don’t have enough spoons……

I use so many spoons to try and help ….I’m not alone in my fight to help … many others are using their valuable spoons to help… I’m eternally grateful for all those who advocate to try and make our lives better….
