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!
