Awful but amazingly wonderful : About the experience of living with ADHD (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet var att beskriva hur personer med ADHD upplever sin vardag samt vilka strategier de använder. Metoden som valdes var en manifest innehållsanalys på skönlitterära biografier. Fyra böcker valdes ut för analys och tolkning. Resultatet utgjorde fem kategorier med tillhörande 13 underkategorier. Kategorierna var upplevelsen av att känna sig annorlunda, obalans i vardagen, svårigheter att hantera intryck och impulser, diagnosens betydelse samt strategier för att klara av vardagen. Slutsatsen av examensarbetet visade att individens upplevelse är viktig för att få en ökad förståelse kring ADHD. Ytterligare en slutsats som kan dras är att arbetsterapeuten med kunskapen kan arbeta med hälsofrämjande insatser för att förenkla vardagen för en person med ADHD.

Abstract [en]

The aim of the study was to describe how people with ADHD experience their everyday lives and what strategies they use. The chosen method was a manifest content analysis on autobiographies. Four books were selected for analysis and interpretation. The result consisted of five categories with 13 associated subcategories. The categories were the experience of feeling different, everyday imbalances, difficulty in managing impressions and impulses, the significance of diagnosis and strategies to cope with everyday life. The conclusion of the thesis work showed that the individual's experience is important for gaining an understanding of ADHD. Another conclusion that emerged from the thesis, is that the occupational therapist with their knowledge can work with health promoting efforts to simplify the daily life for people with ADHD.
