I am unique but still like everybody else : A literature review about being young and live with a chronic disease (English)
Abstract [sv]

Att drabbas av eller leva med kronisk sjukdom som ungdom eller ung vuxen innebär även en livslång kontakt med sjukvården. De unga har både livsdrömmar och funderingar över framtiden som kan behöva omvärderas på grund av deras sjukdom. Syftet med föreliggande studie var att belysa ungdomar och unga vuxnas upplevelse av att leva med en kronisk sjukdom. Studien genomfördes som en litteraturstudie med induktiv ansats. Fyra teman framträdde: Upplevelse av att vilja känna sig normal, upplevelse av hälsa och livskvalitet, upplevelser i relation till framtiden och upplevelse av självständighet. Det fanns en vilja hos unga med kronisk sjukdom att bli accepterad och behandlad som andra. Mental styrka och livsanpassning sågs som viktiga faktorer för hälsan. Sammanfattningsvis upplevde de unga ett varierande behov av stöd varför det behövs kunskap hos sjukvårdspersonal för att anpassa detta. Ytterligare forskning gällande problemområdets specifika åldersgrupper och ett behov av ökad kunskap på området är väsentligt för sjuksköterskan i mötet med ungdomar och unga vuxna med kronisk sjukdom.

Abstract [en]

To live with a chronic disease as an adolescent or a young adult is combined with a lifelong reliance on, and frequent contact with the healthcare system. Young people have both life dreams and thoughts of the future that may have to be revalued due to their chronic disease. The study was made as inductive literature review. The aim was to illuminate the experience of adolescence and young adult living with a chronic disease. Four themes emerged: experience of wanting to feel normal, perception of health and quality of life, experiences in relation to the future and experience of independence. The young people with a chronic disease had a desire to be accepted and treated as anyone else. Mental strength and adaption to life were seen as important factors of health. The conclusion was that young people experienced a varying need of support why it is needed knowledge among health care professionals to adapt this. Further research about this specific age group is needed and increased knowledge about this phenomenon is vital for nurses meeting adolescence and young adults with chronic disease.
