New poetry video: No Spoons Left

2 Feb

A while ago I wrote a poem about what it’s like having limited energy, using the Spoon Theory which comes from this brilliant post by Christine Miserandino who has lupus.

My own spoonie-ness comes from post-viral fatigue (I had mono/glandular fever years ago) but I’ve heard people use the analogy to talk about a range of physical and mental conditions. Basically, if this analogy works for you then it’s for you. Please use widely.

I’ve been meaning to record this for a while. Since I was feeling fatiguey today I decided I might as well. Recorded authentically from my bed.

    Fatigue isn’t a choice, and this is something everyone (sadly) still needs to be reminded of. Thanks for sharing your poetry.
