If you have a chronic illness, invisible illness, chronic pain, or any combination thereof, you know there are only so many spoons. This is what the #SpoonieLife is like, from people who are living it:

Wait, you had plans today?

The mind says “yes!” but the body says “nope”

Meds should do the trick, though, right?

Simple things become difficult, like going to a concert

Or going on a walk

Or taking a bath

Or sleeping

So please, be compassionate when you talk about someone else’s health problems
