As a person with autoimmune disease and chronic illness activities I once didn’t give much thought have to be thoroughly planned. Will I have enough spoons, how to pack medication and my cane, is the venue wheelchair accessible, can tickets be refunded, can a day be blocked off for rescheduling, how much walking?

“Normal” activities are no longer “normal”.

In March I get a break from all the forethought that must go into each activity. I do not have to plan or worry if I need my cane or wheelchair or have a contingency plan. With college basketball March Madness everyone sits on the couch! Watching sports often requires little to no spoons. This is a past time my husband has slowly taught me to appreciate.

To all my spoonie and non-spoonies I hope your March Madness is enjoyable and your bracket un-busted!!
