She said that when she was much younger, her uncle had had HD and her father had been scared by what he’d seen when he went to visit. He had found his brother strapped down to a table because he was moving uncontrollably. When I asked Marie when she realized that HD is hereditary and that she might also be at risk, she said that she began thinking about this seriously in her early 30s. This was about the same time that her father had been diagnosed with the disease. Marie said that for a long time there hadn’t been ‘a strong concern for me having it’.
I waited until I returned home to listen to the interview. It was all there on tape, the important stuff that I had missed. Playing the tape over and over, like a broken record, the ‘it’ Marie referred to signified to me everything that could not be put into words – the fear, the endless introspection and the unavoidable always-thereness of HD. ‘It’ loomed too large and demanded too much. ‘It’ ruptured the conversation because ‘it’ made me and Marie acutely aware that I had asked her to put into words that which she had told me ‘wasn’t really talked about too much’.
In some cases, this may require building formal supervision and (counselling) support into a research design. In others, simply making oneself available – for example, being at the end of a phone so a researcher can debrief after an interview – may suﬃce. Whatever strategies we decide on, it is very important to keep in mind that the emotional aspects of undertaking research may not necessarily stop when a study comes to an end. As the vignettes in this section have illustrated, doing research can change us in permanent ways – hopefully for the better.
