Spotted a link to this study in a tweet by @Tom Kindlon It is a qualitative study from Norway with interviews of seven adolescents with ME. The names of the authors are unfamiliar to me and I didn't get that much from the abstract, so wasn't sure which forum to put this in but decided to go for "general ME/CFS news". Scandinavian Journal of Occupational Therapy "I'ts like being a slave to your own body in a way": a qualitative study of adolescents with chronic fatigue syndrome CFS/ME made the body unfamiliar and disconnected informants from participating in their usual daily occupations. A coherent interaction between body, occupational life and social self was achieved by taking their new body into account and adjusting their occupations accordingly. This practice enabled the participants to hope for a better future life.
