"The Spoon Theory" by Christine Miserandino....

Jim reminded me about the "spoon theory" yesterday. It was "invented" I guess you could say by a brilliant woman with Lupus. She had tried for years to express to her very best, closest friend what having Lupus was truly like daily. Even though the friend "felt"like she really knew, one day they were having a lunch and the "spoon theory" was born. The lady has written a book called "But You Don't Look Sick". Her Name is Christine Miserandino & she has a website at. Here is the "spoon theory". For many they know about this, but for anyone that wants to be able to truly explain to anyone, loved ones, a stranger, anyone what having a chronic illness, such as Lupus is like  ... this is perfect....

Please take a few minutes and read this. It truly will inspire you with or without Lupus... and for anyone with someone they know with a chronic illness, such as Lupus, it will certainly bring forth a clarity in how life is daily for those like myself and many others out there... Hugs, Rhia
