The Tightrope Concept: An Alternative to Spoon Theory
Clare Edgerton

I totally love this and relate so much! I tend to use the analogy of a battery. ‘Healthy’ people have a full working battery, but those of us with chronic illness have a fault battery that might go from 90% to 10% in a matter of seconds. Some days our batteries hold out longer and other days they flat out don’t work. But I love your tightrope analogy too, any new way of helping me understand my own experience as well as the experiences of others is always great :)
