    Abstract [en]

    Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is the most common behavioral disorder among children. Research has proved that at least 5% of children and adolescents are affected in a worldwide perspective. A large number of people are probably unrecorded with the diagnosis. The authenticity of ADHD as a real diagnosis has been questioned during the last decades, and ADHD and its symptoms is still a matter for discussions. People living with ADHD are facing preconceptions which can cause stigmatization. The purpose of this literature study was to illustrate lived experiences of ADHD. The result of the study showed feelings of alienation in the community regardless of age, gender and origin. Their experiences were about feelings of being out of time with their surroundings, to not fit in the norms of society as well as being labelled as disorderly and lazy. Despite this, feelings of being special and gifted were also reported. The conclusion is that people living with ADHD holds a unique lifeworld, which is important to understand. The future holds a surge in demand for caring of patients with ADHD. To support health and wellbeing this require more knowledge within the area of behavioral impairments.
