The online store is yet another creation from Lupus patient, Christine Miserandino of ‘The Spoon Theory’ fame, who first created the Tee’s for herself and friends. “I started receiving requests for many illnesses on the shirts… and even other quotes like "sick and tired of being sick and tired" etc. I began adding new designs and quotes every week.” The shirts come in an array of styles from tank tops to baby-doll tees, so you’ll find a tee-shirt, fit for every age range.

The slogans were created to make patients, as well as onlookers, laugh,  think or even ask questions. “Lets face it—there’s no better way to say it…sometimes things just suck,” says Miserandino.

    How about “Rheumatoid Arthritis Sucks!” products?
    We hurt, have flares, and are totally fatigued much of the time. We are also subject to RA-related renal, lung and heart complications – like many Lupus patients.

  • Sheri

    Would really like to see some products specific to RA…not just Arthritis. We already have a hard enough time dealing with people who don’t know what the difference between RA and OA is. Just a thought!

    A friend sent me your link and I can’t wait for my tax check to order a few things. I have fibromyalgia that is crippling me. No one understands. I also have an autistic son (Asperger’s Syndrome) that no one understands either. You need “I’m an Aspie. What’s your excuse?” And “I’m autistic. What’s your excuse (problem)?” A lot of us would love them, particularly for little ones. I plan to send this link to a lot of folks. Thanks so much for being here.

    Would it be possible to have a “got spoons” women’s raglan hoodie but with a BIG “got spoons” logo on the back added to the store?
    Or a hooded sweatshirt with it big on the back as well as small on one side of the front?
    I love the designs that are there at the moment, but I want to be even less subtle!
