Many people living with chronic illnesses find it difficult to find enough energy to get through the day.  For me living with Crohn's, it is a fatigue unlike any other- Doctors say that to understand the fatigue of Crohn's disease or Ulcerative Colitis, a healthy person would have to stay awake for three days straight and then try to function. 

The Spoon Theory is a metaphor for the amount of energy someone has living with a chronic illness.  Each daily task "costs" one spoon (or sometimes more if it's a difficult task). Often, we find ourselves in the negative, taking "spoons" from the next day, which only leads to a greater fatigue and potentially a path towards a flare up. Often times, we have to pick and choose what we can accomplish, and sometimes need to sit out of different events to keep any remaining energy.

These little spoon earrings are a great way to remember to take it easy and guard your energy, and to raise awareness that a chronic illness is more than just a name.
