Quick Spoon Theory Recap

Posted on

do not waste spoons
At the PRC today [which I will be posting about later] a woman in group brought up an ideology that I have become very fond of called “the Spoon Theory” while discussing moderation in group. I haven’t addressed this in a while so let us recap. The spoon theory is formed around the idea that an individual with chronic illness wakes up every morning with a certain amount of energy [AKA spoons], the individual then has to carefully choose how their day will be based on how many ‘spoons’ certain activities take. I have found this to be an IMMENSELY helpful tool when speaking with friends and family about my situation. I suggest that everyone takes a look at the original article [link below] whether you’re a patient or a friend/family member.
