I had heard the term spoonie here and there but never had it explained to me. I had to look it up just now and I can relate a lot to the meaning.
Due to a few chronic conditions I get fatigue really bad and there is only so much I can do at a time before I have to zonk out for awhile. I just never related it to spoons before.
My conditions only started about three years ago and before that I worked a lot and pushed myself very hard. Still trying to understand my conditions and how to manage my life with them. It's a steep learning curve
but trying to figure it out a little at a time.
I have been a little all my adult life and it actually helped me manage some of my health problems by being able to give up control and be taken care of.
