Anonymous asked realsocialskills:
I mentioned this to you before, but you didn’t answer. What did people mean when they talked on your blog about not having enough spoons? Did they mean they don’t have enough real, physical spoons to be able to cook? Or is it an expression (in the way that “lost your marbles” is an expression) meaning something about their mind, e.g. too tired to be able to think about cooking?
It’s a reference to The Spoon Theory, written by Christine Miserandino to describe what it’s like to have a chronic illness.
