Abstract [sv]

Denna studies syfte var att undersöka hur män i Sverige som fått en sen ADHD diagnos upplever sitt liv med ADHD. Undersökningen utfördes genom en kvalitativ innehållsanalys av tre mäns självbiografiska böcker. Resultatet visade att ett liv med ADHD för män innebar till stor del svårigheter, vilket medförde många olika känslor. Studien visade också att ADHD diagnosen kunde underlätta situationen för männen, men att det fortfarande fanns svårigheter efter att de fått ADHD diagnosen. Studien visade även hur mycket det sociala livet och samhällets syn påverkade männens upplevelser, känslor, självkänsla och vardag. Studien visade därmed att samhällets normer och förväntningar inte är anpassade för de med ADHD. Studien visade att det därför är viktigt att utföra flera studier om hur samhället ser på funktionsvariationer, vilket leder till att man kan utveckla förebyggande arbeten. Därmed kan samhället bli mer anpassat för alla.

Abstract [en]

This study aims to review how men in Sweden who received a late ADHD diagnosis experience their lives with ADHD. The study conducted through a qualitative content analysis of three men's self-biographies. The result showed that life with ADHD for men causes difficulties. The study also showed that ADHD diagnosis could facilitate the situation for the men, but that it still existed difficulties after receiving the ADHD diagnosis. The study showed how much social life and society's view influenced men's experience, feelings, self-esteem, and daily life. However, the study showed that society has norms and expectations which are not adapted for people with ADHD. The study illustrated that it is therefore essential to carry out several studies about how society sees function variations. This can develop better conditions for people with disabilities. Consequently, society can be more adapted to everyone. According to the study, the society can be more adapted to everyone.
