Living with a chronic illness is often hard to explain—especially one that’s not visible. Pain, depression, fatigue, anxiety, digestive problems, and sensitivities are a few of the long list of symptoms that can come out of nowhere, leaving us sitting on the sidelines of life or putting on a brave smile and pushing through. We live with invisible illnesses, unable to express to others the challenges we face and the difference they make.
Christine Miserandino, an award-winning blogger with Lupus, used a handful of spoons as units of energy to explain how every task demands a certain amount of mental, emotional, and physical energy and how quickly those with chronic illness can run out of it or wake up with a fraction of what someone has typically.
Some days, getting out of bed, brushing hair, and even putting on clothes can be too much. This analogy and accepting how to manage my illness became my recovery vehicle.
Using this analogy, scientific research, and my own experience, I have created Spoonie Mom to rebuild the mind and body to decrease symptoms and increase the quality of life for women with fibromyalgia.
