Spoons?

Did I mention I dipped WAYYYYYY into my spoon reserve to do this remodeling?

Did I mention how much I freaking hurt now? I've got heat on my back and an appointment with my pain doc for Monday.

Why do I think I have to be Superwoman/Supermom?

I was wondering about that. You've been doing so many stupendous, stressful and amazing things. I took it as a sign that you were either (a) recovering fantastically, or (b) on lots and lots of drugs.

Hopefully it's both?

I won't be using my spoons today, as I'm about to crawl up on the couch with a sleep teddy bear. You can have mine.

Go to But You Don't Look Sick and click on 'The Spoon Theory' on the left for the story. It's a story originally written about Lupus, but many of us with any kind of 'hidden' disease we have adopted it to explain to people how we feel.

You will probably relate because of DDD, like me.

They also have cool t-shirts there, and I own quite a few. Most notably 'Arthritis Sucks!' :)

Never Enough Spoons
I linked over from LJ 1Smart1 to view you journal since you two look so much alike.

My wife and daughter taught me about spoons and since then I've learned that you always need to safeguard some and plan ahead so you don't use them all up before the day is done.

It brought back some good and some not so good memories for me, hope that you're feeling better real soon and reconstitute your spoon reserve.

*laugh* Thanks for saying we look alike, because I think she's a beautiful person, both inside and out. I really think we are twins seperated at birth.

I'm feeling much better now and am building up a good spoon reserve, which I'm sure we will use up when 1S1 and I get to see each other later this week :)

Re: Never Enough Spoons
I'm very glad that you're feeling better and are building up a good reserve of spoons. With 1S1's visit, I'm sure that you two will use up all of the whole reserve while having the time of your life. Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy. :o)
