“I developed this application so that those with chronic illness would have a resource to help manage their energy reserves and have a universal lexicon to describe their situation, based around the Spoon Theory. The amount of positive feedback we received is incredible, as well as the diversity of users. We’ve had messages from those who are suffering from the loss of a child, others trying to wean off of methadone, as well as those suffering from chronic illnesses like fibromyalgia, lupus, lyme, and MS. We are thrilled to be able to give people a resource that provides some relief to those navigating a path that seems impossible to manage.”
