"I Can't Because I Don't Want to" Spoonie Story Mug

  • $15.00


It's a story all spoonies can related to:

"I can't because I don't want to," she said.

And not a single spoon was wasted on that nonsense.

This mug tells that story in elegant type, with a sketch of a spoon below. The design is repeated on both sides. 

This is the perfect gift for the spoonie in your life -- or for yourself. Because we all could use more reminders that it's okay and healthy to say "No," and that "I don't want to" is a perfectly valid reason to say it. 

What's with all this talk about spoons? The Spoon Theory is a metaphor people with chronic illness and mental health issues use to explain how their energy and resources vary day to day, and how daily activities can take more energy to complete. Each "spoon" represents a unit of emotional or physical energy that you have to ration out by prioritizing actitivies  -- and when you're out of spoons, you *have* to rest. People who use The Spoon Theory refer to themselves as "Spoonies."
