Demo deserves a huge round of applause for getting these questionnaires onto the forum. But I don't know how to post graphics here!

Just some very brief (but important) instructions re: paperwork for applying for Dr. K's study --

1) Print out the following questionnaires and fill out:
        #7A ("POIS Symptoms");
        #7B ("Your POIS History");
        #7C (2 pages, questions 1- 21 -- ***2 pages!);
        #7D ("SCL-90" -- only pages 2,3 and 4 -- 90 questions)


2) Re: #7D -- the "SCL-90" questionnaire -- only pages 2,3 & 4 are required. Please ignore the first (title) page -- it's a scoring sheet that won't be used.  Dr. K. is only interested in your responses re: pages 2,3 and 4 (90 questions);

3) Print out the two pages related to the Informed Consent -- Attachment #4 (demo posted these two pages out of order -- the first page is "Informed Consent" and the second page starts with, "Research Participants Initials____")

4) Read, initial and fill out info for second page of the Informed Consent.

So -- the application consists of a minimum of 9 pages -- plus any comments written onto separate pages that you might wish to include.

You can mail the hard copies to Dr. K. (Fed Ex is probably your best bet) --

Professor Barry Komisaruk, PhD
Department of Psychology
Rutgers-The State University of New Jersey
101 Warren Street
Newark, NJ 07102
USA

Or, you can scan your completed copies and send them by email to Dr. K --

brk@psychology.rutgers.edu

I hope this is clear!!

If you're having problems printing pages out -- demo or Daveman can provide instructions.  I was easily able to print these pages on my PC.

Best wishes!

Stef

Filled out! I'm ready. #hyperPOISmode

I am ready for health and will never stop trying for myself and my girlfriend whom I on break with now. Love is the strongest motivator I have ever experienced. I love you hun and look forward to speaking with you when you are ready even if you must leave. We can find love again guys and will. Even if it doesn't work out with relationships, never stop. 

We will persevere and navigate this physical and mental minefield of a disease.

I love all of you guys and you have motivated me beyond what I thought was possible. I understand your pain.

We will do this because we must!

Be well All!

Demo, just keep me updated on where and how to send out this paper-wk cuz i will go to rutgers tomorrow if I must (you can msg me direct). I am 30miles away and familiar with the area...

Andy,

You can scan & email your paperwork to Dr. K. But I think the best route is mailing it to him via Fed Ex --

Professor Barry Komisaruk, PhD
Department of Psychology

101 Warren Street
Newark, NJ 07102

Please make sure you've got at least the 9 required pages filled out.

Wishing you the best, Andy. Go for it!

Stef

Turmeric and Rosemary 30-45 minutes before orgasm for anti-inflammatory and immune support has helped me a lot. Faster and easier than niacin approach.

Hi Andy (and Demo!),

I did notice the space on questionnaire 7C --  the POIS History Questionnaire.

I'm sure Demo's correct -- those ID codes will be assigned by Dr. K. and his team. But let's hear what Dr. K's reply is to Demo's question to him.
