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

Pho – if you don’t know it , you  should.  It is Vietnamese  noodle soup. It is also  miracle  food. My asthma  has been less than fun for the past few days, and today my rib caged just ached.  We went to visit my sister.  We had Pho for lunch.  After feeling slightly  worse , suddenly I felt much better.  More in balance.  This isn’t the first time I’ve felt  better after eating Pho.  I know  people  make the same claims about chicken soup, but  that never did  it for me.  Pho, however, seems to work.
