    The Spoonie Community on Social Media

    If you have chronic pain, you know how isolating and lonely it can feel. Often it feels like you are the only one in the world who understands what pain is like. But when you start scrolling through social media and find someone else struggling in the same ways that you are, that can be an incredibly affirming experience.

    We love it when people share their spoonie moments. It brings us together, it connects us, it bridges the divide that chronic pain puts between an individual and everyone else.

    So in honor of the amazing spoonie community and bringing us together, here is a list of our favorite spoonie tweets of all time.

    Shoutout to all these spoonies below for being vulnerable and raw. You are making a community.
