dc.description.abstract In a study aimed at establishing a greater understanding of the subjective experience of sufferers from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), time perspective was identified as one of the most affected dimensions of the self. It was found that the chronic and unpredictable nature of CFS affected both the past and the future of participants. AS both of these dimensions reside within the present, the present was marked by a sense of anxiety and uncertainty. Participants showed, however, that they were able to countermand this anxiety by focusing on the extended present. In this dimension they had the power to consciously shape a perspective from which to (re-)interpret events and (re-)appraise the self. en
