A different participant commented, "I believe it [MBSR] is one thing that I would prefer to try... I'd give it a go". Several participants appeared extremely enthusiastic expressing "I would like some more details about this" and "If there was a chance for me to go on a course I'd go" and "I would be really satisfied in experiencing that kind of approach." It was also suggested that MBSR needs to be obtainable to considerable other individuals or carers of the person with AS, with a single participant saying "I consider my wife would benefit from it and her anxiety levels..." The group discussion evolved towards the unique delivery modes of MBSR which can be traditionally delivered within a weekly group session of 2.5 hours over 8 consecutive weeks. Other potential modes of deliver explored included on-line courses and distance delivery over the phone with a similar time delivery (over 8 weeks).St made me feel like a zombie...I felt worse".

A number of participants had tried alternative or complementary interventions for managing fatigue.
