The Spoon Video is AMAZING!!! I used the Spoon Explanation to my Husband and Daughter. Both of them already have a good understanding of my limits ect. Now I use that euphemism when they want me to do things. I tell them I the quantity of spoons I have based on how I feel that morning. When they ask for things, like a ride somewhere or for me to do the shopping alone I tell them how many spoons it is going to cost me to complete that activity and what I will have left over for myself/them. I usually only do one major task a day. Like tomorrow I will wash some clothes. How many loads? Depends on how I feel when I wake up and how many spoons I think I can spend that day.
I think we should find a way to keep that video as a permanent part of this page. It is the best thing I have seen to help others understand what we go through.
IDK how that electroconvulsive tag got attached to my post, but I dont believe in that
