While chronic pain can affect anyone, recent research has shown that there may be a relationship between chronic pain and neurodivergence.
I’m slowly accumulating tools that make disabled life a little easier, but there are still a few chronic illness products on my wish list!
As our social media followers may know already, I started a full-time (albeit remote) job this summer. Before this, I worked about 60 hours per week, on average, as a freelancer in addition to blogging, writing, and running my small press. That was even less sustainable than the thought of working full-time with chronic illness!…
With many productivity tools focusing on healthy, neurotypical users, they won’t all work for disabled folks who want to be more productive. The best productivity tools for spoonies, in my experience, are those that are customisable and either work with your symptoms or aim to relieve them.
From research and my own experience, I’ve created a sort of guide to productivity with chronic illness, to help me & my fellow spoonies.
Some of the best tools I’ve found to manage chronic illness come from my smartphone. These are the best apps for spoonies I’ve tried so far!
