Abstract

Title: Daughters experience of growing up with a mother with eating disorder

 

Authors: Malin Schelin and Caroline Westberger

 

Daughters risk negative identity development if they grow up with mothers with EA.

Previous research shows how children of parents with mental illness easily are forgotten. This thesis investigates daughters experience of growing up with mothers with eating disorder (EA) and if and how their identity development got affected. A qualitative text analysis was carried out of six newspaper articles and nine chat posts from four chat forums. The articles and the posts were written from the daughters perspective. The result showed that the daughters felt forgotten. That they took an adult responsibility for themselves and their mothers, several of the daughters wished that they would have been given information of the mothers illness. The daughters emphasized a feeling of guilt and several of them have developed an EA. They describe that they handled their upbringing by increasing the distance to their mother, and by defining the mother's disease differently.

Sammanfattning

Titel: Döttrars upplevelse av uppväxten med en mamma med ätstörning

 

Författare: Malin Schelin and Caroline Westberger

 

Döttrar riskerar negativ identitetsutveckling om de växer upp med en mamma med ätstörning. Tidigare forskning har uppmärksammat hur barn till föräldrar med psykisk ohälsa bortprioriteras. Uppsatsens syfte var att undersöka döttrars upplevelse av uppväxten med en mamma med ätstörning samt om och hur döttrarnas identitetsutveckling påverkats. En kvalitativ textanalys genomfördes av sex tidningsartiklar och nio chattinlägg från fyra chattforum. Både tidningsartiklarna och chattinläggen var skrivna utifrån döttrarnas perspektiv. I resultatet framkom att döttrarna upplevt sig bortglömda och att de tog ett vuxenansvar för sig själva och sin mamma. Flera av döttrarna önskade att vuxna i deras närhet gett dem information om mödrarnas sjukdom. Döttrarna framhåller en stark skuld och flera av dem har själva utvecklat en ätstörning. En del av döttrarna beskriver att de hanterat sin uppväxt dels genom att öka distansen till sin mamma, dels genom att definiera mammans sjukdom på ett annorlunda sätt.
