Niagara Health Study: The impact of personal relationships on coping with chronic illness

This is a study, being conducted at Brock University in Canada, of how people cope with serious chronic illnesses such as ME/CFS and/or fibromyalgia, particularly through their personal relationships with others. While it is well known that people who have strong social ties have better health and recovery, we do not well understand the pathways by which this occurs. Through the survey responses of people who actually cope with such conditions, researchers hope to better understand these processes and how to help them. Anyone suffering from a chronic illness such as ME/CFS and/or fibromyalgia is encouraged to participate in this research; location of residence is not a concern, as we would like to have participants from all over the world.
