Abstract

The concept of feeling disrespected was explored using the Parse research method. Ten women living with embodied largeness were asked, “What is the experience of feeling disrespected?” The structure of the living experience was feeling disrespected is mortifying disheartenment arising with disquieting irreverence, as distancing affiliations surface while enduring hardship. The findings provided new knowledge of living quality, advanced nursing practice, and presented future direction for research.
