Community Dwellers' Perspectives On the Experience of Feeling Very Tired
Feeling very tired is a phenomenon experienced by all humans at some point in their life. As a means of more fully understanding the human experience of feeling very tired, this concept was explored with a group of 10 community dwelling individuals who had no expressed health concerns. The Parse research method was used to answer the research question, What is the structure of the lived experience of feeling very tired? The central finding of this study is the structure: The lived experience of feeling very tired is dissipated vigor arising with monotonous disquietude amid spirited cherished engagements. The structure was conceptually integrated with the human becoming theory as: feeling very tired is powering the languaging of valuing connecting-separating. The findings are discussed in relation to human becoming and,future research.
