    30 is the best score, 0 the worst.

    These finding resonate with me like no other I've read. I think it could be useful evidence in campaigns to show the impact of the illness.

    Thanks for digging out and posting.

    Thanks. And I haven't posted everything.

    Thanks are due to all the people who filled in the questionnaire, the 30 interviewees and the researchers.

    Looks like the questionnaire they used, or close to it (extract mentions 34 (cf. 36) aspects of life - maybe there are two dummy questions or something)

    Thank for posting this, @Dolphin. Having the losses categorized in one place really hits home. As hard as it is to see, this is important information.
