Impact of Chronic Illness: Differing Perspectives of Younger and Older Women.
Gordon, Phyllis A.; Feldman, David
Journal of Personal & Interpersonal Loss, v3 n3 p239-56 Jul-Sep 1998
The life experiences with chronic illness of six women at differing life stages were examined. Interviews concerned the impact on their lives, alteration of self-perceptions, and meaning of the event. The women had achieved varying levels of acceptance, and it appeared that ability to cope was dependent on many factors. (Author/EMK)
