Abstract

This paper examines:hope, as measured by the Herth Hope Scale, and its predictors in a sample of 305 people self-identified with multiple chemical sensitivity. The sample had relatively,low levels of hope with scores unrelated to gender, severity or length of illness,: income loss as a result of illness, or reported iatrogenic harm. Hope scores were positively correlated with perceived social support, having found personal growth through illness, age, reported level of supportiveness from a partner, an improved course of illness and level of reported safety of the home environment in regard to chemical exposures. Negative correlations were found with attitude toward healthcare delivery,fatigue and reported abuse/ostracism from family members other than partner. Social support, Healthcare Orientation:, growth through illness, fatigue and age predicted hope scores accounted for 55% of the variance. Implications and suggestions for future research are discussed.
