Abstract

The purpose of this paper is two-fold: Firstly, it reports on one man's experience of bulimia. After being interviewed it became evident that he did not meet the inclusion criteria for the study, which was focussed on anorexia in men. Secondly, the paper explores the implications for a novice researcher of including someone in a study who does not meet the inclusion criteria. The researcher's story reflects upon the implications of self-doubt when embarking upon sensitive research, and the morality of holding onto a rogue participant's story. It offers others an opportunity to consider and learn from this experience.
