  • It's ONLY Diabetes. It could be something worse!
Hello,

My name is James Ashwell, and I am a final year undergraduate Psychology student from Nottingham Trent University in the UK. For my dissertation project, I am conducting research into the effects of fatigue, resilience, social support, and mood factors on quality of life, and am hoping to find participants with an existing long-term health condition, who would be willing to answer a short 15-minute questionnaire. Health psychology is an area of study that I have been passionate about researching throughout my degree, and I am hoping that the results from my work can help raise more awareness about such matters. 



The link for the study is https://ntupsychology.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/a-research-project-investigating-the-effects-of-fatigue-m

Kind Regards,

James

Me too, except I couldn't figure out how to answer the Q about raising children as I have none.

I put the 'Neutral' answer smack in the middle, I think.  You know - the 'baggage' had no effect good or bad on how I did it, LOL

I will too


Edit-- just completed. It didn't take long. It was terribly repetitive which I find quite frustrating. It's like... I just told it that! Stop asking me if I'm blue!! :)


It could have opened up certain other areas... it asked about fatigue which I responded to... but as I have a 2 yr old that doesn't like to sleep at nights, and I work 40 hrs a week, it's perhaps not surprising that I get tired. There was no place to explain that though.
T2 and PCOS. Just had large serous adenofibroma removed with ovary and fallopian tube. Bp is now normal!

Novorapid, levemir, trulicity, metformin.

Well the questions in these things are always like that V - they ask us 'Is it black, or blue?' so we answer 'Black' - and then they ask 'Is it blue?' to see if we answer the same, ie No.  Frequently if you are right up one end of an answer, the next time they ask worded differently - you'll be right up the other end!  So - your answers 'match' LOL
