So apparently there's this girl on my jewbook that keeps talking about how she's "running low on spoons".

At first I thought "oh I guess she doesn't have a lot of silverware?"

But, NO ITS AN ACTUAL PHRASE USED BY DISABLED PEOPLE.

Holy fuck, I can't take it anymore. I need a lexicon while reading these fuckers' posts.

LIFE ISN'T A FUCKING RPG

>Spoons are an intangible unit of measurement used to track how much energy a person has throughout a given day. Each activity "costs" a certain number of spoons, which will only slowly be replaced as the person "recharges" through rest or other activities that do not require (or even refill) spoons. A person who runs out of spoons loses the ability to do anything other than rest. One of the tenets of the spoon theory is that people with disabilities, chronic illness, or mental illness must plan their daily activities to conserve their "spoons," while healthy, able-bodied, and/or neurotypical people have a "never-ending supply of spoons" and thus have never needed to worry about running out.

>healthy people never need to rest

well fuck, I guess I must be autistic, because I "lose the ability to do anything other than rest" every night

Spoon theory is sort of like a video game. It's a limited number of actions one can take per full night's rest. Normal people supposedly do not have any limit on spoons, just that they eventually tire.

It's supposed to be a combination of physical and mental exhaustion that causes them to be unable to do anything except for a limited number of tasks. This is supposed to be an abstract limitation that can't be helped by drinking enough water, eating healthy, exercising, not working yourself too hard, relieving stress, etc. It's their justification for needing a normal person to do things for them and totally dismissing any activity that requires you to take a lot of individual actions, like education, socializing, or exercise.

You have to remember that dressing yourself, eating, going to the bathroom, petting your cat, checking your phone, or engaging in conversation are all supposed to consume "spoons," and this is how they justify valuing some activities over others.
>>
>>61124049

> healthy, able-bodied and/or neurotypical people have a "never-ending supply of spoons" and thus have enver needed to worry about running out.

what a great analogy. no one except you has any difficulty doing anything. you are the only one life can be hard for, everyone else is just skating frictionlessly over every encounter and obstacle.

work 14 hours, deal with unhappy clients, get yelled at and still somehow make a positive ending, have to be at work at 5am the next day. YEP, NEVER FELT LIKE I WAS RUNNING OUT OF WILL. 100% SPOONS ALL DAY.

fuck this shit. if this is how it works, i have 0 spoons until i've absorbed some alcohol.

but anyway, these people are obviously pampered. Once you have hiked through the woods all day, but can't sleep anywhere because of where you are, and have to push on, your body goes into what I like to call "don't give a fuck mode" and basically you can keep going. Your mind overpowers your body

these people are complete body, obviously

Top fucking kek. What a bunch of bitch niggers. Take your medicine, take care of yourself, and move on. Most people are fully willing to adjust their schedules etc. to accommodate your needs, in my experience.

However, I suspect these spoon nazis are the ones who will flat-out demand special dispensation up front and for everything imaginable. What a bunch of whiners.

I don't even get how people can demand normal folks bend to their will. People like us are different from the norm and it's unfair to guilt regular people into accommodating all our whims. Just be decent and decent people will help you out often without you asking.

IIRC, it comes from an anecdote of a woman who was explaining to her friend what it's like to have the disease she has (can't remember which) - a condition which leaves her exhausted throughout the day, and thus, unable to be as productive as most people. To explain this, she grabbed a bunch of spoons from the surrounding tables, giving them to her friend, and took her friend through her daily routine, charging her spoons (as currency) for every activity she does during the day. Through this, her friend could understand that she has to budget her energy every day and make sacrifices and compromises.

SJWs ran away with this.

How the fuck is this not "cultural appropriation", or whatever bullshit lefties call it, against the disabled community? Therapists teach clients, who report having so little energy that they skip meals and bathing just to sleep, as a way to validate their mental problems, and help motivate them to complete tasks (ok, I got X spoons left, I can totally do X activity).

This idea is taught to mentally damaged people to convince them to not be COMPLETE trash. Lefties should not be taking this idea, as stupid as it is, as an excuse to be fucking lazy.

This is kind of a helpful way to measure energy and exhaustion for people with disabilities that cause fatigue, like multiple sclerosis

No, it's not. Read the original blog post: http://www.butyoudontlooksick.com/articles/written-by-christine/the-spoon-theory/

It's a metaphor which a girl with lupus used to explain to her dumb-as-dogshit friend what chronic fatigue feels like over lunch one time.

It has nothing to do with a limited number of actions. It's a way of saying "I get tired more than you" to someone who has an IQ below the drinking age.

Maybe I've misunderstood it but this doesn't seem like a bad thing if it's being used by someone with an actual fatigue-causing illness like MS. The choice of spoons as a unit is odd but if you can only do a limited amount of things in a day before becoming exhausted it'd be nice to assign units to tasks in order to help you plan.

I think calling them "spoons" is a bit silly, but I understand the concept. When your health deteriorates past a certain point you begin to realize how much effort a shower or making a meal takes and find you don't always have that effort to give.

I doubt many people with real disabilities feel the need to use this. They're either visibly disabled or people around them know of their illness or if not, they have the mental courage to just explain their situation using normal language instead of having to justify it with something silly like this.

It appears that this is used by people with fake illnesses, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, various things that can't be proven (not that these don't exist, but that the majority of people with them have a different problem or are encouraged to believe them as an excuse to be lazy and selfish.)

Also things like autism, depression, anxiety, etc. A lot of people deal with these things to some extent, but this theory seems to justify viewing yourself as limited due to your condition and demanding others accomodate you instead of trying to overcome them and function anyway. I know I've been somewhat anxious depressed but I don't think something like this would've helped me. What helped is realizing nobody cares and nobody is going to help and that I'd have to make do with my situation. This seems like a tool to justify learned helplessness.

I have a cousin with lupus who uses this. Basically she gets fatigued a lot easier than most people (as lupus tends to do).
So she describes her day with spoons. She can get dressed- one spoon. She can eat breakfast- another spoon. She can drive somewhere- another spoon. She can eat lunch- another spoon. Every "thing" she does takes a spoon. And she only has 20 or so spoons to use, afterwards she's physically incapable of doing anything more.
It really helps with planning our days when we hang out, I know that I should probably drive so she can rest. I know that we shouldn't walk all the way across the mall. I understand that after lunch and a few shops she's literally incapable of doing anything more.
It originated as a tool, nothing more. But with Tumblr's culture of self diagnosis and other bullshit, it's been adopted by perfectly able bodied people who don't fucking need it.
