Post Explaining fatigue - the "spoon theory"
The November 2011 newsletter for "Patients Like Me" refers to the "spoon theory" as a way to explain fatigue to those not dealing with chronic illness. A woman with lupus, Christine Miserandino, developed the "spoon theory" when faced with her best friend who didn't understand how Christine could be so fatigued when she looked so good ("you don't look sick"). Christine posted about this on the website, Here's a link to the post: ... serandino/

(The post is also available in Spanish, French, and Hebrew from the website.)
