Out of spoons

Many of you will already be aware of the “Spoons Theory” but if you aren’t, please DO pop over and read it here

Anything can be exhausting if a person is already coping with a disability. Even very pleasant, exciting and fun stuff like best friends, birthdays and especially best friends’ birthdays.

There is a price to pay. For every day we have been having fun and using up tomorrow’s spoons, I have to rest up sometime and restore my spoons stock. I’ve got gastro and a stinking cold. This does not surprise me. My body is telling me to rest while it goes on strike

Not seeking sympathy, just explaining why I won’t be around for a couple of days. When the medics tell a disabled person to “avoid stress” they don’t underline that stress included nice happy jolly stuff – wot is pain in bum!
