To be discouraged by one’s body : Living with Multiple Sclerosis (English)
Abstract [sv]

Multipel skleros är en kronisk, inflammatorisk autoimmun störning i det centrala nervsystemet och är en av världens mest förekommande neurologiska sjukdomar. Omvårdnadsteoretikern Katie Eriksson beskriver människan som en helhet av kropp, själ och ande, hon framhäver även att livet innebär ett lidande. Syftet var att beskriva individers upplevelser av att leva med multipel skleros. Denna litteraturstudie inkluderade sökningar i flera databaser för att finna vetenskapliga artiklar. Utifrån 13 resultatartiklar som berörde individers upplevelser av att leva med multipel skleros, genererades ett huvudtema Att känna sig motarbetad av kroppen och två teman Kroppsliga upplevelser och Själsliga och andliga upplevelser med subteman. Livet med sjukdomen innebar fler själsliga och andliga upplevelser än kroppsliga upplevelser. De olika temana identifierades med hjälp av Erikssons teori om att människan är en helhet. En betydande slutsats för studien var att livet med sjukdomen innebar en begränsning i vardagen. Litteraturstudien kan bidra till ytterligare kunskap och förståelse hos berörda personer, vilket kan leda till att individer med sjukdomen upplever minskat själsligt lidande. 

Abstract [en]

Multiple Sclerosis is a chronic, inflammatory disruption in the central nervous system and also one of the world’s most common neurological diseases. The nursing theorist Katie Eriksson describes the human being as a whole unit of body, soul and spirit. She also explains that suffering is a part of life. The aim of the study was to describe the experiences of individuals living with Multiple Sclerosis. This literature study included searches in several databases with the intention to find scientific results articles. 13 results articles which referred to experiences of individuals with Multiple Sclerosis, generated one main theme To feel discouraged by one’s body and two themes Physical experiences and Mental and spiritual experiences with subthemes. Living with the disease meant that the mental and spiritual experiences were more numerous than the physical experiences. The different themes were identified using Eriksson’s theory of the human being, as a whole unit. A conclusion of great importance was that living with the disease meant a limitation in everyday life. The literature study can contribute to further knowledge and understanding in people whom are involved in the disease. In turn, this can lead to decreased life suffering in people with Multiple Sclerosis.
