To Sleep Per Chance to Dream

Tristan is a 30-something living in urban America. They live every day life trying to find a balance between family and friend obligations while struggling with chronic depression. In this game, you play Tristan. During the day, you are forced to make real-life choices that use up your mental and physical energy. At night, you try to regain energy while fighting off your nightmares. '''What Is The Spoon Theory? The Spoon Theory is an awesome concept created by Christine Miserandino, the owner of Butyoudon’ According to her page, it started when a friend at a restaurant asked her what it was like to be sick with Lupus. After a few seconds of thoughts, she went and grabbed as many spoons as she could and handed them to her friend. As her friend counted them, she explained that each spoon represented the things she could do that day. You see, unlike those who are healthy, people who suffer from chronic illnesses, like Lupus, have a very limited amount of energy. As a result, they have to choose very wisely how to spend it. That day, as Christine sat with her friend, she explained that getting up costs one spoon. Making and eating a meal costs a spoon or two. Getting dressed costs a spoon. Showering may take two. As she continued, her friend became quite emotional realizing how difficult life could be for someone with chronic illness.''' ~ Jennifer Rock More Info:
