Abstract

The purpose of the study is to see how different it can be to live with an ADHD, as well as how different it is to manage to get an ADHD diagnosis in adulthood. The information is gathered through several qualitative interviews with open questions. The thesis is based on a qualitative study and is based on five interviews with participants, who have been diagnosed in adulthood. The results show that the participants have different experiences of the symptoms and difficulties associated with the diagnosis. The usual symptoms such as attention disorders, impulsivity and hyperactivity are described in different ways by the different participants. Also, how different participants have experienced getting the diagnosis, and the importance of getting help. The conclusion is that the diagnosis manifests itself differently depending on the individual, and that more knowledge is needed and the subject needs attention.

Syftet med undersökningen är att se hur olika det kan upplevas att leva med en ADHD, samt hur olika det är att hantera att få en ADHD diagnos i vuxen ålder. Informationen är insamlad genom ett antal kvalitativa intervjuer med öppna frågor. Uppsatsen baseras på en kvalitativ undersökning och bygger på fem intervjuer med deltagare, vilka har diagnostiserades i vuxen ålder.

Resultatet visar att deltagarna har olika upplevelser av de symtom och svårigheter som förknippas med diagnosen. De vanliga symtom som uppmärksamhetsstörningar, impulsivitet och hyperaktivitet beskrivs på olika sätt av de olika deltagarna. Även hur olika deltagarna har upplevt att få diagnosen, samt vikten av att få hjälp. Slutsats blir att diagnosen yttrar sig olika beroende på individen, samt att mer kunskap behövs och ämnet behöver uppmärksammas.
