The Spoon Theory written by Christine Miserandino

Woman Lying on a Bench by Carl Larsson (from the All Posters Web Site)

What is a Spoonie? What is the Spoon Theory?

The Urban  dictionary definition is this:
A person living with chronic illness, that identifies with Christine Miserandino's Spoon Theory.
Spoonies are people that live with chronic illness; theoretically measuring personal daily abilities much as one would measure the proper amount of spoons needed for an event or occasion... sometimes having an abundance, other times coming up short.
