This is the best description yet...

So I stopped by Cinders' site and saw reference to "The Spoon Theory", when I read it, I just had to take that extra spoon and add this story to my blog. It is by far and away the best description of what living with fibromyalgia is like that I have read thus far. Please take the time to read it.
