“The Spoon Theory”

Have you read about “The Spoon Theory,” which helps us to answer a very difficult question: How is it to be chronically ill, how do we cope, how can we?

How do I answer a question I never was able to answer for myself? How do I explain every detail of every day being effected, and give the emotions a sick person goes through with clarity. I could have given up, cracked a joke like I usually do, and changed the subject, but I remember thinking if I don’t try to explain this, how could I ever expect her to understand. If I can’t explain this to my best friend, how could I explain my world to anyone else? I had to at least try. — Christina Miserandino
