The purpose of this study was to compare women with and without Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) in social support, participation in occupations, and life satisfaction. The study included 110 women: 41 diagnosed with CFS and 69 healthy controls. Findings demonstrate that women with CFS report lower participation in occupations, less satisfaction with life, and less social support compared to healthy women. These findings suggest that women with CFS may benefit from OT intervention.
