L is also for "Long story, but worth it". The link to this was posted on the online conference for my university. It's the best description I've ever read of what it's like to have a chronic illness, and how you can explain it to "normal" people.

    I'm going to post the spoon link,linking back to you of course. It made me cry,for Christine,you,Oliver,Purlpower and me. I'm trying to decide if standing long enough for a shower is worth the pain,or to sit and wash. Some days arte short on spoons. Life's a bitch sometimes !

  • WOW what a beautiful piece of art **sigh** it's SO pretty.

    I'm all choked up over the spoons story, it's beautifully written and it's a great illustration. I got thru that to a very small degree with the whole migraine issue, if I use too many spoons from tomorrow's allotment, I'm down spoonless for 3 days =) It really works along so many lines. **sniff, sniff... whyaaaaaah** =((

    Thanks for sharing it, I'll never forget that story.
