What is a "Spoonie"?

By Susanne Shoemaker December 03, 2018 0 comments

Have you heard someone mention the word “spoonie”? This actually refers to a metaphor that allows people who suffer from chronic illness to describe their illness and the challenges they face to another person.  The term “spoonie” originated from The Spoon Theory, a blog post written by Christine Miserandino.  The Spoon Theory illustrates the challenges that someone living with a chronic illness faces every day. Each day, spoonies have a limited amount of energy and ability. This energy is represented by a handful of spoons. Activities of daily living take away “spoons.”  This makes it harder for chronic patients to keep up with daily tasks and responsibilities.  Individuals with chronic illness and pain will find a supportive community among "spoonies."  Check out various social media platforms, i.e. tumblr #spoonies.
