I loved that! Thanks for posting! !! I wish I had this a week ago..
I met a guy, or well known him years ago, and two years ago he contacted me and wanted to hear how I am doing.
Eventually he managed to get me to meet him , I had told him on the phone how ill I am. The look on his face when he saw me was surprised. He couldn't stop staring at me, he couldn't stop touching me and he said that I look gorgeous, not ill at all.
He just didn't get the truth.
He kept admiring my body, my hair and he said I look so well.
I couldn't make him understand.
Then he asked why I am not with someone and I tried to explain it and said I just don't have any energy. He asks how I look so "perky" even though I have told him how fatigued I am and want to sleep a lot. I tried to explain it's down to choices as I knew I was meeting him I skipped something else, and pay the price next day. That I have to make choices every day.
If I go biking today I won't do much for next three days and so on.
I wish I had this spoon theory to show him!
