Emotions that go with being a Spoonie
Fear: this is a big one. It is easy to be afraid when you are sick, and as spoonies we are always sick, but then the other stuff starts to add up quick, turning into a deep downward spiral of doom
Loneliness: Spoonies are often left out of invitations or can’t go even if they are invited. Friends ignore calls, until they have time to deal with their “sick” friend. Quite frankly, able bodied people don’t have time for spoonies so we are lonely. Spoonies get left out of a lot.
Sad: this one is easy. Feelings of sadness come for all kinds of reasons as a spoonie. It’s sad being a spoonie and watching the world go by as if it were a television show and we are just watching it.
Anger: this is a big one. It’s easy to be angry for being a spoonie. Wondering why. WHY ME???
Self-Doubt: doubting yourself due to your disability
Feeling Inferior: always trying to overcompensate, prove that you are just as normal as everyone else.
Self-Pity: it’s easy to feel sorry for yourself as a spoonie, because you feel like everyone else does.
Mad at the world: this one is easy
