Brain Injury Resources . . . . . . Fatigue and The Spoon Theory

Fatigue and The Spoon Theory

Brain th-2Every brain injury is different. Yet, the survivor interviews on this blog have shown that fatigue is a common effect of a brain injury. Once the survivor was energetic – able to do many things. Now the survivor is often tired or worried about getting tired.

Have you ever tried to explain chronic fatigue to someone healthy? Usually he or she doesn’t get it. Christine Miserandino, who has Lupus – a chronic disease, invented The Spoon Theory to show her healthy friend why she is so concerned with the energy cost of doing anything. Christine’s Spoon Theory 309_1_is a simple way to show the difference between being healthy and energetic and being worried about fatigue by having a chronic condition – like Lupus or a brain injury. In The Spoon Theory, Christine writes, “I explained that some days were worse than others; some days I have more spoons then most. But I can never make it go away, and I can’t forget about it. I always have to think about it.”
