I feel deflated, like an escaped balloon that’s been whizzing round the room and has come to an abrupt halt in a heap on the floor!
I’ve had a busy couple of weeks what with an interview for my dream job, catching up with old friends and the new term at school.
I will write about the interview separately as just the thought of it makes me want to lie down in a darkened room! I gave it everything I’ve got, both physically and mentally and I think the effort stole my mojo!
This got me thinking about the fatigue and the Spoon Theory.
The Spoon Theory was written by someone with Lupus but applies to MS too, you can find it at http://www.butyoudon’tlooksick.com. It describes how spoons represent energy and that you only have a limited amount to get you through each day. Every task takes up a spoon so if you use them up too quickly it’s game over for the day and you have to rest till you get new spoons the following day.
I think I’m seriously overdrawn in the spoons department! I have borrowed far too many to get me through the last few weeks that it will take me a while to pay them back! I’m running on less spoons than usual have no choice but to rest and wait till I’m in the black again.
I usually have loads to write about and have a back log of ideas, comments and musings to discuss but just at the moment I’m blank!
So, if anyone comes across my mojo would you please send him back to me (don’t know why I imagine my mojo as male, that’s another story………)
