dc.description.abstractIn this qualitative study we explored how gender shapes the women´s experiences of living with Fibromyalgia and how it affects their private lives. Through thematic analysis of data from 13 in-depth interviews in Spain, we identified 7 themes which reflect that these women feel remorse and frustration for not being able to continue to fulfil the gender expectation of caring for others and for the home. This research contributes to a better understanding into what suffering from fibromyalgia implies for women and provides insights into how family and providers can support women with fibromyalgia in order to achieve a beneficial lifestyle.
dc.description.sponsorshipThis study is part of a wider research project financed by the Regional Valencian Government’s Joan Gil-Albert Cultural Institute in Alicante (Spain) and the Women´s Studies Center of the University of Alicante.
