Brilliant Analogy!

Sunday, August 8th, 2010

While surfing through an over-abundance of e-mail, Facebook posts and Twitters today, I encountered an absolute gem! For anyone who is dealing with a chronic illness and constant pain &/or fatigue, you know how difficult it is to explain to friends & employers (sometimes even family members) what you are experiencing, especially if you don’t “look sick”.
The-Spoon-Theory,written by Christine Miserandino is a *Must Read*, an absolutely brilliant analogy of what daily life is like – not only for those individuals coping with Lupus (as the author of the theory is), but also Rheumatoid Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Lyme Disease and a host of other illnesses!
