  1. ED = participants that still fulfil the diagnostic criteria for Exhaustion Disorder at follow-up, i.e. the Exhaustion Disorder group (n = 51)
  2. EDrec = participants that no longer fulfil the diagnostic criteria for Exhaustion Disorder at follow-up, i.e. the recovered group (n = 99)
  3. T1 = Timepoint 1, baseline, i.e. at the time of diagnosis
  4. T2 = Timepoint 2, follow-up, i.e. 7–12 years after diagnosis
  5. Percentages in each group (ED and EDrec) reporting each stressor were calculated as well as the differences in percentage points between the groups at each time point (baseline and follow-up) along with the 95% confidence intervals (CI) for the differences
