|For every aspect of the SOS-V the following two questions were asked:|
Do you feel .......(aspect)? Is there ....... (aspect)?|
If the answer on question 1 indicated that the aspect was present (= all answers other than 'not at all') question 2 was posed:
How unbearable was this?|
If the answer on question 2 was 'seriously' or 'very seriously' more information on this was asked in an open-ended question.
|Scale for question 1 and 2:|
|not at all - slightly - moderately - seriously - very seriously (could hardly be worse)|
|1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5|
