Spoon Theory - Noun.

An intangible unit of measurement used by individuals with chronic illnesses, disabilities and depression to quantify and track energy throughout a day, usually used to conceptualize the otherwise unconsidered toll of mundane tasks.

The year is 2011. You are me, living in an apartment in Chicago.

You are failing your classes because you can't get out of bed in the morning (or the afternoon for that matter).

You can't wash your dishes, do your laundry or bring yourself to shower more than once a week.

You sleep until 4PM and only wake up to order Chinese food, otherwise you would have already starved.

You are, by all measures, suffering from Clinical Depression.

Today, however, you're going to try your best to get past that: you're going to gather as many Spoons as you can muster to take a shower, get dressed, eat something and go to class.
