Spoon theory


Here is a link to a essay about how it feels to have a disability and struggle to do things everyday, this is how I feel.


Do you feel like this? Do you think this is a good way to explain it?


I sort of feel that way, yes


"but you don’t look sick"
Do not try to bend the spoon, only try to realize the truth.
"What truth?"
There is no spoon.


idk I just started reading this and I think people would stare if someone started just taking spoons off of tables and the management might get involved.


Whether the story was true or not is irrelevant, what matters is the symbolism


Alright, yeah sure lol


I more believe in the spork theory. Lol

But no seriously I feel like I run out of spoons so quickly.


Yeah, I really do like the spoon theory. I first heard about it in the autistic online community quite a few years ago. I mentioned it here a few times as well. I think it works for many different illnesses, physical or mental.


I remember back in the days when the forum had both diagnosed and family/caretakers posting on the same forum, there was a beautifully written post about spoons written by the sister of one of the diagnosed forum members. Neither of them are active any more on the forum, but here’s a shout out to @kidsister and @SurprisedJ. I hope they are both doing well.

Here’s a link to kidsister’s spoon post—

Anyone remember @kidsister and her spoon collection?
