    It means there is NO more energy for ANYTHING. Your day is done. You have to rest, sleep, vegetate.

    So after utilizing the Spoons to explain your day to people-then when you are out of Spoons what does that mean?

    The Spoon Theory originated when a Lady and her friend were having lunch. As they sat at the table, her friend ask her to explain Lupus to her. So the Lady ( she has Lupus) looked around her as she was thinking of a way to explain what it is like to have Lupus. She noticed the spoons on the table, so she gathered them up. Handed them to her friend. And began by asking her friend how she would begin her day. With everything her friend did without thinking of how to begin her day with Lupus, she took away a spoon. And the story goes on until her friend is out of spoons.

    I wish they sold nice posters with the spoon theory story on them, I think it would be easier to get more people to read it if we didnt gave to pester them to read it online, and I find the spoon theory story to be the best way to get across what I deal with daily to gealyhy people who dont grasp that I doing stuff isnt as simple as just toughing it out and enduring pain.

    Hi, I just wondered if you sold any spoonie products, I would love to use a pad with spoons on that I can write tasks next to instead of using my note book so I can religiously stick to a set number of tasks – I know it sounds daft but I need something like this to force me not to overdo it – part of my mental health issue but would help physical issues too – I’ll come back soon to see if any links are available for UK spoonie – good health to all -Neil
