I'm a third year Bsc Psychology student at York St John University and am investigating the psychological impact of Vasculitis as my dissertation project. I was diagnosed with Wegener's Granulomatosis in 2007 so have personal insight into this project.
More specifically I am investigating whether levels of anxiety, depression and life satisfaction can be predicted by positive thoughts about the way we think and feel. By this it is meant being positive about your ability to process thoughts and emotions successfully.
I have designed a questionnaire to measure these things in people with Vasculitis and would be very grateful to anyone who would be interested in filling it in. I'm aware that as a rare species we're often getting asked to fill out questionnaires or participate in studies, so I really would appreciate people giving their time to fill out mine.
I have asked John Mills for his permission to post this on here and will report my findings back to VUK, with potential of producing an article for the newsletter too.
The questionnaire can be accessed by following the link below and contains an initial page giving more details about the project so that you can make an informed decision about whether to participate.
