the doujins seems like young neeko and one of her firends somehow.
Or maybe its because the author makes the faces too similar to each other , sometimes i dont know wich is neeko an wich is her friend like in this comiket chapter in certain panels.

I still dont know if her firend is in love with neeko or she is just the best friend ever going out of her way to even talk with neeko's mother about helping her.

yep. this mangaka is pretty bad at that. neeko and uri are nearly indistinguishable in this chapter. doesn't help that uri made a "neeko face" on page 104....

Help, this manga is too relatable.
Glad Neeko is making progress though.

neeko used up all her spoons...

Ah, so that is what it's called. I read about the general idea of rationing energy in Kahneman's book, where he talks about the limited pool of attention/focus we all have, but he doesn't attach a name to it. I am guessing Miserandino's work wasn't academic enough for him to cite...

"energy rationing" is already a name

Yea, but it's more of an economics term.

the spoons thing is just a useful metaphor to explain some of the ways metal illness affects one's day-to-day life. i use it when talking to people who have a hard time understanding what depression/anxiety means for me personally.

neeko being exhausted for days after doing something so intense is something that i experience too.

While the term has primarily been used in the mental illness context, I think it applies more broadly, too. Because consciousness is a biological process, it makes sense that the same rules of exhaustion apply to the brain as to muscles: both can get exhausted after using them for long enough. It's just that for people with mental illness, this limit is much more apparent, just like a person with an arm injury will not be able to carry heavy stuff very far. Then again, a bodily injury is often obvious to an outside observer, while mental illness is not, and furthermore, things like maintaining focus for prolonged periods of time is taken for granted by those who've never suffered from mental illness.

TL;DR: Everyone has a limited number of spoons to give, but only people living with mental illness have to ration them in day-to-day life.

Running out of spoons (specifically, teaspoons) used to be the main limiting factor that determined when I had to do the washing up. Eventually I realised that, if I'd only used the spoon to stir my coffee (the most common scenario), I could get away with just rinsing it under the tap and use it again for the next cup. Of course, this was after I'd bought myself more spoons... Anyway, nowadays it tends to be knives instead.

On reflection, I'm not sure this is very useful as a metaphor...

[28] finally some yuri (bait) in this series. more importantly, a lot of readers had assumed that imoko wasn't as oblivious as she lets on, and this chapter confirms that.

Imoko was just looking for a convenient excuse to drop the charade and let her true self shine through, pretending not to remember anything afterwards. She is really a scary woman, in an awesome way.

Yeah that put Imoko’s move in a different light.
