Today we’re talking Invisible Illness here on the blog.
Many of you have asked me what it is like to have an invisible illness, and for many of you, I haven’t had a good answer. Until now. Recently I started looking for other people here in the online community who suffer from invisible illnesses, to get a feel of how they cope and to hopefully learn how to manage my own life in a healthier way. In doing so, I came across the brilliant Spoon Theory.
Written by Christine Miserandino of But You Don’t Look Sick, The Spoon Theory is a perfect example of what has become my daily life. I highly encourage you to click on over and read it. The concept of The Spoon Theory is that those of us with invisible illnesses have a limit to the amount we can do in a single day, this limit is represented with a number of spoons.
Thank you for reading, and I hope as always that you are happy and healthy.
