5 Signs You’re A Spoonie Warrior – An Infographic With A Light Touch

 

I don’t tend to use the ‘spoon’ terminology in my blog, but today I thought I would. Just for a lighter touch, I made up an infographic on 5 things those dealing with invisible/chronic illness might know all too well. Any of these sound familiar?

    Some of this applies to us old folks too. Just saying.

    Have a fabulous day and weekend. ♥

      Hah, I’m sure they apply to various people, such as how loving PJs has no criteria, pajamas are just wonderful! Thanks for the comment 🙂

    Made me smile. Well done, truth with a grain of humor.

    I don’t tend to use Spoonie vocab either but I love this. You know, this week I found myself planning for a nap two days in advance. Crazy!

      Dunno where you are, Cate, but indeed we don’t use it here in Los Angeles either — here it might mean a sleeping position when one has a partner LOL — either way, Cat, this is another great post. we all are a bit frail at some point in our lives <3

      • August 28, 2018 / 4:12 pm

        That’s what I thought when I first came across the whole ‘spoon’ / ‘spoonie’ thing, a sleeping position! It’s gained quite a lot of popularity but I don’t know that I like it too much, thought I’d just try it out once for the infographic at least (less space taken up by text to put ‘spoonie’ than ‘chronic illness’…! Thank you, I’m glad you liked the post 🙂

    • August 28, 2018 / 4:54 pm

      Aw, I might have to start doing the same, stretching it from one to two days in advance sometimes! I’m sorry you know these things all too well, but I’m glad you liked the post 🙂

    This is fantastic and I love the info graphic too. Very clever and so true, all of it. I do love going shopping for new pj’s!!

      Thank you, Anita, I’m glad you liked it. I’m also happy to know I’m not alone in the love of PJ shopping! 🙂

    It’s serious and funny all in one!
    I remember it well…

    • August 28, 2018 / 3:55 pm

      I tried to balance the two, I’m just not sure whether to laugh or cry that so many people are familiar with these things! Thanks for the comment, Carolyn 🙂

    Absolutely amazing as always Caz! Everything you included was so incredibly true, but you are able to describe things with great graphics and your creative ways! You are a truly amazing young lady!

    • August 28, 2018 / 3:52 pm

      Aww Alyssa, that means a lot, I’m glad you liked it! I was a bit worried trying an infographic and using the ‘spoon’ thing as I don’t usually but I thought I’d give it a go. I hope you’re doing okay lovely and that this week is kind to you xx

    I love it, This is very interesting. I didn’t say “yes” to all of them. Is it good or bad? 🙂

    • August 28, 2018 / 4:27 pm

      If you can say no to some of these that’s good, Miriam! But do you enjoy PJ shopping? That’s always good in my books 🙂
      Thanks for reading – I hope you have a good week ahead.xx

    Lol. I don’t know what a spoonie warrior is, but I love the infographic. Thankfully it only applies to a limited extent in my case,, but I have a close friend with chronic lung disease for whom I’m sure it would be spot on.

    • August 28, 2018 / 3:31 pm

      I’m glad these only apply in a limited fashion for you, Nick. Though I don’t think there’s anything wrong with owning ample pajamas and enjoying shopping for them! I’m sorry about your friend, I do hope he/she is getting the best care possible.. Thank you for the comment 🙂

    Nice use of infographics to speak what is so true!

    • August 28, 2018 / 5:15 pm

    I relate to #4 and #5 especially. Sigh.

    • August 28, 2018 / 5:16 pm

      I’m sorry you can relate, especially those two as they’re both incredibly frustrating. xx

    The inforgraphic is great. Good way to display the information!
