counting spoons

I put this on facebook, but I need it here for me . In this essay, a woman explains what it is like to live with a chronic disease. She compares energy to spoons – and as you do each task of the day – you lose a spoon. Things are not as bad for me as they are for her, Most of the time. But there are days and even weeks that are. And I need to remember to count my spoons
