I am a Spoonie and I have been one for as long as I can remember. According to Spoon theory,Â people only have so many spoons in a day and when they are gone there is no more energy left. I lose my spoons early.Â
Today I went to church, my church has been following guidelines and we wear masks. I sing one solo in a favorite song every few years. Last Wednesday I started a new pill for a new problem. I have no spoons.
No problem, I have been pushing the envelope all my life. Went to church sang anyway. I shook all the way through that song but nobody seemed to notice.Â
That’s what we do, take it one thing at a time. I love my life, my church, my friends and support groups. However if I look back or forward too much I will fall apart.
Maybe I will have more spoons tomorrow, if not I will just push it through.
