How CFS Alters the Self and Everyday Life

In this poster, self-reported changes in the self and everyday life of those suffering from CFS are compared with a control group. Those with CFS were more likely than controls to report negative changes for a number of dimensions of their self and everyday life following the onset of CFS, although for some dimensions it appears that the onset of CFS may have had a positive effect. We will describe how and why changes in the self and everyday life occur following the onset of CFS and the potential impact of these changes.
