You find yourself thinking “Laying down really is the best thing ever!!” on a regular basis. And you’re in “the prime” of your life.
This is my spoon jar! It’s something I can turn to when I’m feeling overwhelmed and depressed and need to stay busy.
The stress of a chronic illness plus an anxiety disorder means I need this sort of thing a lot, and I thought it’d be fun to make it a physical thing rather than just a list (there’s something nice about a cute thing you can hold, you know?). It’s inspired by those cute little “date jars” going around Pinterest—except this is for a date with myself ^^
Instead of popsicle sticks, I found some great single-use wooden spoons, which are nice and lightweight, inexpensive, and have bowls shallow enough to write on! Finding a pen that wouldn’t bleed on the wood was a bit of a challenge, but once I found it, this was super easy to make.
Tonight I’m fighting a very difficult battle of trying to avoid the hospital when just a few short hours ago I was trying to act normal. Lupus is so hard to have because its so unpredictable and you don’t show any visible symptoms, making people think your a liar. I won’t go down without a fight. #spoonie #spoonies #lupus
