This website is an extension of the Spoon Theory narrative written by Christine Miserandino.
This website contains a demonstration/game that shows a glimpse of what life is like as a chronically disabled person. The demonstration, answers to common questions, and resources can be found on the side of the page.
The point of this website is to facilitate communication between disabled and able-bodied people; the outcome of this is better relationships, increased communication, increased well-being of disabled people, and increased performance at school and work.
In addition to the resources on the side of the page, I will be updating the website frequently with interesting news about disabilities, communication skills, and general disability advocacy.

This. Is. Fucking. Brilliant. - Haley
The Spoon Theory, written by a woman living with Lupus, uses an analogy to offer some insight into what daily life with a disability or chronic illness can be like. ”The difference in being sick and being healthy is having to make choices or to consciously think about things when the rest of the world doesn’t have to. The healthy have the luxury of a life without choices, a gift most people take for granted.” [Categories include: invisible disabilities, chronic illness, personal testimonies.]
Always a good thing to reblob.
