I have taken the "spoon theory" that you posted some time ago and reworded it to better suit my individual issues with the CD.  You may have saved my marriage and future relationships by offering up such a good analogy of chronic illness.  THANK YOU!  I would like to further urge you to post the spoon theory every so often for the "newbies" and those who are experiencing serious relationship issues.  While my marriage is solid for now, the spoon theory reminded me how I set expectations of my family on such high standards and how I get disappointed, hurt and sometimes angry when they don't live up to them.  Change starts with each of us and I needed to read that story again!  Bless You!

I'm glad it helped you, but I can't take the credit for writing it, I just passed it along, if you have it handy post it again, it may help the newly diagnosed, their family and friends, if not I'll have a hunt and try to find it.
thanks,
Are you feeling any better today?

I wish I had saved it on my computer, just printed a hard copy. I see you found it and posted it! Yes! I'm feeling much better today, thanks for asking! I am soooo glad I put off the dental surgery until next week. Husband is getting a crown & a wisdom tooth pulled Monday and I go for the two impacted wisdom teeth and failed root canal on Wednesday. Looks like he'll be eating slurp with me! I've decided that will be a good time to give him "the spoon theory"!
