Spoons

I asked her to count her spoons. She asked why, and I explained that when you are healthy you expect to have a never-ending supply of “spoons”. But when you have to now plan your day, you need to know exactly how many “spoons” you are starting with.

— Christine Miserandino[1]

Spoons refers to the metaphor by Christine Miserandino to describe energy and time management when living with chronic pain, sickness, or disability.[1][2] It is often referred to as "The Spoon theory".
