    So this paper showed that we get frustrated on days when we do not feel well enough to do anything?

    "Herein, we examined whether daily variation in the satisfaction and frustration of the basic psychological needs for autonomy, competence, and relatedness would contribute to daily variation in subjective energy and quality and quantity of sleep. "

    That sounds as if they were trying to prove that satisfaction and frustration led to feeling worse but they found

    "These reciprocal within-day associations remained significant after controlling for the previous day's level of each outcome"

    so they say reciprocal when they only found what we would say was sickness causing frustration whereas they used contribute when trying to show their favourite thing of our illness being a physical response to emotional upset.

    They don't believe their own data.

    And who keeps giving out money like halloween candy to do it. There are too many psych students/researchers. So let me offer up some worthy topics.

    Study the psychology of war. Or of CEO's of fortune 500 Co's. Or the psychological effects of a world where politicians lie everyday.*

    *Since I don't trust robust results from anything studied I'll be arsed to know why I suggested this.

    The findings seem rather predictable, but I fear that they might lauch an investigation to see if the emotional experience of need frustration causes CFS symptoms.
