Online survey

By June 22, 2011 - 11:24am

Hi!
I am a doctoral student in psychology at University of Quebec in Montreal, Cananda.

I am running an online survey about eating disorders (anorexia nervosa, Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia nervosa or Binge eating disorder) or weight regulation disorder (obesity), and diabetes.

This project was approved by the research ethics committee at Université du Québec en Outaouais (UQO), and obtained a grant from Ministère de développement économique, innovation et exportation Québec.

If you have:
a DIABETES only
OR
an EATING DISORDER (anorexia nervosa, Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia nervosa or Binge eating disorder) or weight regulation disorder (OBESITY) only
OR
a DIABETES WITH a diagnosis of EATING DISORDER (anorexia nervosa, Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia nervosa or Binge eating disorder) or a weight regulation disorder (OBESITY)…

You are eligible to participate in this research. It only takes 35 minutes to complete the questionnaires.

Your participation is entirely voluntary. The data collected in this study are entirely confidential, and the website used for data collection is secure in order to ensure confidentiality. The results will allow us to contribute to the advancement of knowledge about the relationship between eating disorders and diabetes, an understudied domain.

With this research, we want to develop a psychological treatment for patients with diagnoses of diabetes and eating disorder.

I participated in the survey and thought it to be very thorough. It was also eye opening to many things I am doing wrong and just how I have been feeling lately. I am not helping myself as much as I need to in order to cope better with the chronic illnesses I have. I we all need to re-evaluate just what we are doing to help ourselves. I think it would be an awakening for most of us. We could all do better. Now is the time to start!

Description

Living with largely invisible chronic illness is unique. You have all the medical issues, but you also confront a presumption that an illness that can't be seen can't really be that bad. Employers, schools, family, friends, and even doctors don't always "get it." This is a place to come where you have nothing to prove.
