“The shameful disease of women” : A qualitative study about how males in mass media express their experiences and thoughts about their eating disorder. (English)
Abstract [sv]

Denna kvalitativa studie avsåg att undersöka hur män, som hade eller hade haft ätstörningar, i massmedia uttryckte sina upplevelser och tankar om sina ätstörningar, om insjuknandet, om ätstörningsvården och bemötandet inom den, samt om sitt tillfrisknande. Metod: En kvalitativ innehållsanalys av utvalda massmedieprodukter på svenska. Resultat: Anledningar till att männen fick en ätstörning berodde på att vilja ha kontroll, lindra ångest och/eller påverkades av kroppsideal. Männen kände en ensamhet och ett utanförskap i sin ätstörning och i vården för ätstörningar, för att ätstörningar ansågs vara en kvinnosjukdom. Gällande männens tillfrisknande så mådde vissa bättre, men hade en bit kvar att gå. Slutsats: Män med ätstörningar är en exkluderad grupp som måste få mer plats i samhället och ätstörningsvården.

Abstract [en]

This qualitative study aimed to illustrate how men, that had or have had an eating disorder, expressed their experiences and thoughts about their eating disorders (ED’s), how they got sick, the treatment of their ED’s, and the recovery from the ED’s, in mass media. Method: A qualitative content analysis of mass media products in swedish. Results: The men in the study got an ED due to wanting control, relieve anxiety and/or being affected by ideals. The men felt loneliness and alienation in their ED and in the treatment of ED’s, because ED’s were considered a disease of women. Some men felt better and a sense of freedom after the recovery. Conclusion: Men with ED are an excluded group and they need more room in the society and within the treatment of ED’s.
