The 'Spoon Theory' is a disability metaphor used to give a visual representation that signify’s the decreased amount of both mental and physical energy available for activities. These activities can be as simple as washing your hair to going into the office and represent both essential and productive tasks.
Each activity requires any given amount of spoons which can only be replaced through rest. Once a person has run out of spoons they are unfortunately only able to rest until they have replenished their spoons.
There are so many chronic and invisible illness’ covered under the spoon theory and individuals who suffer from these refer to themselves as Spoonies.
The Spoonie Society is here to make a change in the Spoonie community.
