Of Spoons and Sporks

Jim Hines linked to a very interesting blog essay by Christine Miserandino about living with chronic pain, or rather communicating about what it is like to live with chronic pain. As someone who has relatives and friends who’ve had situations like this, I found the essay moving and true and worth checking out:

In addition to linking to this very worthy essay, though, Hines also spins off a more satirical one concerning the frustrations we deal with every day:
