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!
