The Spoon Theory

This has nothing to do with wargaming. But if you've got a person in your life who's elderly or living with illness, or if you're that person, you need to read this. The Spoon Theory. Even if you're not that person and don't know any, there's something worthwhile in there.

Thanks, Jonathan. I just emailed it to my wife (who had a brain tumor and lives with something like this every day.)

Thanks! Thankfully I'm pretty healthy, but this did shed some light on what my mother goes through with her disabilities (although she never complains and does enjoy the things she is able to do).

I'm glad to hear you found it helpful. I've got a few friends dealing with not lupus but illnesses with similar draining effects, and each of them I've showed this to was quick to agree that it was a good explanation of how they deal with their days.
