Managing Chronic Illnesses

Well, I'm back to counting spoons, again. So, I'm  sharing this technique with you. If you deal with chronic disease(s), it's useful to keep the "Spoon Theory" in mind. 
It's a good way to stay at the top of YOUR game. Spoon inventory enables you to prioritize things in your life, get things done and get the rest you need. Sadly, we spoonies sometimes  think we can do so much more, in one or two days, because we're feeling great, only to end up needing significant downtime. Why waste precious days? Pace yourself and you will get more accomplished without having to spend time trying to recoup your energy and feeling sick or actually dealing with a major flare. One more thing, you don't need to explain yourself to anyone because you keep a daily spoon inventory...your true friends will understand because they want to see you well.
