Hungry, Life, and Low Key: jenroses Have I told y'all about my husband's Fork Theory? IfI did already, pretend I didn't, I'm an old. So the Spoon Theory is a fundamental metaphor used often in the chronic pain/chronic illness communities to explain to non-spoonies why life is harder for them It's super useful and we use that all the time. But it has a corollary You know the phrase, "Stick a fork in me, I'm done, right? Well, Fork Theory is that one has a Fork Limit, that is, you can probably cope okay with one fork stuck in you, maybe two or three, but at some point you will lose your shit if one more fork happens. A fork could range from being hungry or having to pee to getting a new bill or a new diagnosis of illiness. There are lots of different sizes of forks, and volume vs. quantity means that the fork limit is not absolute. I might be able to deal with 20 tiny little escargot fork annoyances, such as a hangnall or slightly suboptimal pants, but not even one "you poked my trigger on purpose because you think it's fun to see me melt down pitchfork This is super relevant for neurodivergent folk.

A combination of time focus, and reduction to small stressors that can allow you to focus on the larger stressor in a constructive way This makes so much sense

Ass, Best Friend, and Dancing: That's rape. Why the fuck are you calling it anything else. I'm sorry but you're so fucking delusional right now. And I'm not saying this cuz I'm in love with you. I fucking hate you now. I played nice because I cared about you. I bit my tongue and held everything in cuz didn't wanna put more shit on your plate but fuck that now. And I did all this not because I liked you but because you told me I was your best friend. I knew we were never going to be together I accepted that a long time ago. You think I'm selfish? Me? Look at everything I've done for you and you dare call me selfish? Fuck you. I confided in my friends because for onceI didn't know But whatever you weren't raped. I guess I'm just salty you chose this ugly ass old dude over me at a point in my life when I had genuine feelings for you. At a point in my life when I was really trying to date you. At a point where you knew I liked you. I only took you on this trip cuz I liked you. I thought that made it pretty clear. And if what you say is true then that makes you even shittier than I thought. If you told me you were gonna start dating him at woulda canceled the trip right there. What a perfect time to break my heart, when I liked you the most and when we had a trip planned Yes I told you whatever choice is yours to make and guess what you made the wrong choice. No, I don't control your life but you definitely affect mine. You made a shitty choice by talking to him after everything. Can't you see why that would piss me off? Do I really need to spell that out for you? Oh yeah you don't care about what I think. I told you not to talk to this guy anymore to block him at the very least. He's a rapist! The scum of this fucking earth. Wtf do you need to figure out about someone who raped you. Did you get raped or not? Tell me the fucking truth and stop dancing around this. Because what you told me is rape and your actions say it's not. What what the fuck was going on. I vented to them because I was on the verge of canceling the whole trip. But in the end I bit my tongue and played nice for you. I know I'm a clown I know I let you use me. I don't expect anything in return because I just wanted to see you happy. I'm sorry that happened to you but I told you not to talk to this asshole again. Does my word as your best friend not mean anything to you? In my eyes you chose that rapist over me. You chose someone that took something away from you versus someone that's only given to you. You obviously didn't give a fuck about what I felt. You don't give a fuck about your "best friend " you tell tells me it's not. Why are you telling me a different story? You chose to give this asshole another chance, the exact opposite I told you to do, the one thing that would make me hate you. I was so fucking pissed at this dude cuz you're my best friend and you know me and would fuck this asshole up for what he did to you. But you told You chose to tell him that and you chose to tell me you got raped. What you do, what you say and how you say it affects people. I know you're going through shit but don't you know you are so engrained in other peoples lives too? Don't you're on your friends minds daily too? It's not your choice whether people care about you or not, we just care about you because we all love you. But you're really testing that rn. I knew things were awkward and different after I found out you saw him your friends and what you post a different story. know you so i had a drunken hook up with a guy before one of my “good friends” took me on a trip and this is what he had to say after we got home
