You might not be familiar with the term "spoonie" and you're quite lucky not to be. It refers to the spoon theory by Christine Miserandino which uses spoons as a measure of energy for the day. It's commonly used by people with chronic illnesses who are named after the theory as spoonies. I often use the #spoonie in my social posts and I thought it would be nice for some of you to actually know what it meant. ʘ̥ꀾʘ̥ . (yes, this is supposed to be a cat)

If I wanted to sum up a spoonie's life in one sentence : all the things that were not a big deal become hard. Achieving simple tasks is a daily battle. I see you out there, no I'm not exaggerating. Unfortunately. One of the thing I've been struggling with is fatigue. Even after a good night sleep, your body keeps shutting down the next day and taking a nap is your only option. You keep learning about your body with its ups and downs.

Oh oh! If you know someone with a chronic/invisible illness, think about it and be understanding. Have a nice day and stay healthy! ♥
