The Spoon Theory

I found a story called "The Spoon Theory" that does a really good job of explaining what it's like to live with chronic illness. Technically, the story is about Lupus, which is a different autoimmune disease than RA. But the analogy is still quite good. If you ever wonder what it's like to fight through pain and fatigue every single day, I recommend reading this story.

Thank you SO much for sharing that! It's such a real, physical representation of what you're going through. I'm sure it doesn't cover it all (you stab your spoons with needles, yes?), but it sure helps give a window to us outsiders.
