We have other threads where we take a serious look at some questionnaires and their misleading results when used in ME/CFS research. The classic case of this is the Chalder Fatigue Questionnaire, yet we still see it used even by otherwise respected ME/CFS clinicians/researchers. I participated in an online piece of research by a PhD student earlier this year that used multiple questionnaires with the stated purpose of finding out the impact of emotions on CFS, IBS and FM in older adults, and which it seemed clear to me would provide masses of data, but no useful evidence of anything. As a result I wrote to the research student and his supervisor, see this thread We see most weeks more poor quality research on a range of diseases without biomarkers, and even on some with biomarkers, where questionnaires form the basis of inappropriate conclusions. I'm getting seriously fed up with all this junk being imposed on us and millions of other sick people, and the whole field of research that goes merrily on churning out PhD's and papers based on nothing more than handfuls of allegedly 'validated' questionnaires and the data from them being shoved into stats packages, often using tests inappropriate for the data type, cherry picked results to suit the researchers prejudices, and the inevitable conclusions drawn that attribute disease to character flaws, and recommend yet more psychological therapies to 'fix' us. So I decided I needed to let off steam about this in a non constructive way, and invite others who are equally angry and fed up and sad about this whole situation to use this thread to let off steam about whichever questionniare is driving you nuts. If you want to do a serious analysis of what is wrong with a questionniare, best do it on another thread. This thread is for making fun of questionnaires, writing silly answers, letting off steam... There is also a serious side to this thread. By pointing out just how silly and inappropriate some questionnaires are by writing silly answers, we can perhaps get a clearer handle on why those questions are inappropriate, and will elicit an inaccurate reflection of ME/CFS and of any individual's state of health. So take any quesionnaire you like, and tell us the answers they bring to mind, the things you might be tempted to write to point out the stupidity... And then maybe join a serious thread about that questionnaire and help us write papers and letters to journals and rapid responses and getting them published to try to bring about change.
