    Thumbs up Spoon Theory holds true for SCI

    I read this the other day. Although it has to do with someone who has Lupus, I believe it holds true to those who have SCI

    That is a really good article. I always just told people about the pain or how long it takes to do things now, but that really brings to light what you go through. thanks for the post. made my day!

    yea! we use that sight over at the american pain foundation and it has helped so many members explain what they go through to family members who just don't get it. it's great!

    Medic, please no worries about sharing The Spoon Theory again -- IMO, it can't be posted often enough!

    The more people we can get to see it -- especially the ABs in our lives -- the more hope we have that they will come to have some understanding of how SCI/D and other disabilities, chronic conditions, and unrelenting pain affect our lives.

    Thank you for reminding me that there are some new people in my life with whom I haven't yet shared this. I try to revisit it at least once a year so I can pass it on.
    It is easier to find men who will volunteer to die, than to find those who are willing to endure pain with patience.

    Or, I didn;t mean you shouldn't post again ..... more that it is a good idea, worthy of posting again.

    It's a tad simplistic for me, but it's reasonably ok.
