Hi,

I know that this has been posted before because I first read it here, but today I couldn't find it so I have reposted it.

For those who don't know what the spoon theory is please read the article below, for those of us who do it's a gentle reminder.

“All the elements in your body were forged many, many millions of years ago, in the heart of a far away star that exploded and died. That explosion scattered those elements across the desolations of deep space. And came together to form you, you are unique in the universe.

A good reminder for us all :( Shame it caught me on a bad day as it brought a tear to my eye with the realisation of my ongoing situation :( However, good to pass on to our loved ones and those around us for them to try and understand just a little of what we all go through on a daily basis.

Hope your day was a good one :)

"Just thinkin' about tomorrow
Clears away the cobwebs and the sorrow 'til there's none

When I'm stuck with a day that's grey and lonely
I just stick out my chin and grin and say, oh

The sun will come out tomorrow
So you gotta hang on
'til tomorrow, come what may!"

Hi Illeatyu

Thank you for posting the link to the spoon theory. The author has found a great analogy to demonstrate her day with Lupus which can be used for chronic pain or any chronic illness. CP like Lupus can vary from day to day and on those better days those spoons aren't used so quickly.

I hope others in here 'got it' as I did.

Once I could laugh with everyone
Once I could see the good to me
Holding the world inside
Now the world is grey to me
Nobody can see you gotta believe it
Oh oh the night comes down
And I get afraid of losing my way
Oh oh the night comes down
And it’s dark again
“The Night Comes Down” Queen
