This is a story that describes life for those of us living with Chronic Illness. Chronic Illness is a really crap word that covers a whole heap of things, from anxiety and depression to lupus (which the story is specifically written about) to non specific pain and everything in between.
If you hear me talking about ‘spoons’ it comes from this link. Spoons for me is a word to talk about pain and energy levels with no emotion. It can be a positive or negative connotations.
Have a read, perhaps you will understand, and for some of you it may be a very useful tool for you with battles you may be fighting.
