What is a Spoonie?

But what is a "Spoonie"?

The term "Spoonie" was coined by Christine Miserandino. She used spoons to demonstrate what it was like to have an "invisible" illness such as fibromyalgia, lupus and chronic fatigue syndrome. The story goes that everyone starts the day with a certain amount of spoons. As the day goes on the spoons are taken away depending on the activities undertaken. If you do too much, you run out of spoons. There is a possibility of gaining a spoon by resting and not pushing yourself too hard. There are days when you need an extra spoon and that's where these little "Spoonie" gnomes come in.
