Note: RD's link takes you to the main page. On the left side, part way down, there is a link for the "spoon theory". Or you can go to:http://www.butyoudontlooksick.com/the_spoon_theory/
That was great RD. It's really applicable to everyone- some people might have fewer "spoons" than the lady in the article, others will have more. But it's amazing how true it is. I'm always thinking about how if I do one thing, than I won't have the energy for something else. And (for me), it's also a good reminder to cherish the spoons I do have, rather than missing the ones I've lost. After all, there are many people who make do with far fewer spoons than me.

And the really good news? You only need one spoon to eat ice cream! :)

RD,

This is what I sent to that friend that dumped me. She stated that it would be good for her sister to read since she had Chrons Disease. She never acknowledged that I was actually sending it because I had been so sick and didn't know why.

I think I may make copies and send them to my mother and my daughter since they haven't talked to me in a month and care so much about how I'm doing.

That story is very powerful and to think that it does nothing to some who read it amazes me.

CG, JMHO but first you have to have a heart to feel anything. if those with big hearts will not only understand what we go thru, but some will be brought to tears after reading this story.

what your so called friend did to you was not in my book a friend to you from the start, but what i call a user and after you was of no use to she she dumped you, and i am so sorry you was hurt by it. but think of this was. your a lot better off without her as your friend. and know this, as i am your friend, she is missing out its her loss. and my gain :)
