Sammie The Spoonie

A PICTURE IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS – which is why I decided to create “Sammie the Spoonie”, a comic series that illustrates the frustrating – and sometimes humorous – challenges of living with a chronic illness- one picture at a time.

Sometimes “getting out of bed” is all you can accomplish in a day – and there’s nothing wrong with that!
When something is definitely wrong and the doctor tells you to see a psychologist, it’s time to find a new doctor!
Chronic illness may be hard- but you should never allow it to steal your joy!

For those of you who don’t know, a “Spoonie” is an individual who identifies with the “Spoon Theory”, a theory created by blogger Christine Miserandino, that many people in the chronic illness community identify with as a way to describe what they struggle with in day to day life. If you haven’t heard of the theory, I would encourage you to look it up!
