215.365 (8:00 AM wake-up)

8:00 AM wake-up

 

The first photo about the spoon theory. I am making a series of this, so expect more photos soon.

 

If you have never heard about the spoon theory, I suggest that you read this article: here.

 

The spoon theory describes how people with chronic illnesses live.

 

Each day, I start with this jar. I never know how many spoons are in there. Did I sleep well, what did I do yesterday, am I getting the flu, what's the weather like? All these things and a lot more influence how much spoons I have to spend.

 

I always hope I have a lot of spoons, but the last couple of weeks my number of spoons has been steadily decaying, leaving me bed-bound for most of the day.

 

My photos about being ill
