Spoons and their allocation

30 12 2009

A friend of mine (hi Steph!) has a debilitating medical condition, which means that many days she doesn’t function very well or at all. In her blog she’s talked often about what sort of ‘spoons’ day that day is for her — sometimes the spoons reference is to how she feels at the beginning of the day; other times it refers to how many spoons she had by the end of the day. I sort of got the gist of the ‘spoons’ reference, but until she put up a link on her blog the other day, I didn’t really understand it. Now I do. Thanks Steph.

The article she linked to was http://www.butyoudontlooksick.com/navigation/BYDLS-TheSpoonTheory.pdf from the ‘But you don’t look sick’ website: http://www.butyoudontlooksick.com/the_spoon_theory/.
