Abstract [sv]

Hiv-infektion är en sjukdom som drabbar människor runt om i världen. Sjukdomen är livslång och påverkar alla aspekter i den Hiv-smittades vardag. Stigmatisering och moraliska attityder mot de Hiv-smittade i samhället är vanligt då sjukdomen vanligen sätts ihop med sexualitet och utsatta grupper i samhället. Syftet med denna studie var att beskriva hur de Hiv-smittade upplever sin livssituation. Metoden var en litteraturstudie där tio artiklar med kvalitativt material analyserades. Resultatet sammanställdes i tre kategorier: 1. Psykiska och emotionella aspekter, 2. Det dagliga livet samt 3. Fysisk hälsa och mötet med sjukvården. Resultatet visade att de Hiv-smittade beskrev livet som "en berg-och-dalbana" där Hiv upplevdes som en ostabil tillvaro och en osäkerhet som kunde förändras från dag till dag. Att lära sig att acceptera livet som en Hiv-smittad person var en process där stödet från familjen och samhället spelade en viktig roll.

Abstract [en]

Hiv-infection is a disease which affects people around the world. The disease with it’s lifelong status affects all the aspects in the daily life of the Hiv-infected people. Stigmatization and the moral attitudes against the Hiv-infected in the society are common because the disease is usually connected with sexuality and groups which are living outside of the society. The aim of this study was to explore the experiences of the Hiv-infected person’s daily lives. The method used was a qualitative litteraturestudy of which the analysis was put together by ten articles with qualitative material. Three categories emerged from the result: 1. The Psychological and emotional aspects, 2. Daily life and 3. Physical health and contact with the health care. The result showed that the Hiv-infected people experienced their daily life as "a roller coaster" with aspects of unstable subsinstence and uncertainty which could change from day to day. To learn how to accept life as an Hiv-infected person was a process where the support of the family and the society was very important.
