Dear Group member,
My name is Gill Benn and I am a third year BSc (Hons) in Occupational Therapy student at the University of Cumbria. As part of my final year, I am investigating how Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis affects a person’s daily living activities, such as self-care, leisure and productivity. The aim of the study is to identify how people manage their condition on a day to day basis, and which strategies are most effective in enabling people to manage the condition so that they are able to have a good quality of life.
