Abstract [en]

The study describes how 24 people with postpolio syndrome (PPS) cope with their problems. Two qualitative interviews were conducted, 6 weeks apart. The interviews were analysed inductively. It was found that the participants experienced many types of illness-related problems in their everyday lives. Furthermore, they describe the progressive deterioration in terms of a general weakness, fatigue and pain--these adding to the emotional stress. A variety of coping strategies are employed and the result of the analysis shows it to be impossible to carry out a clearly differentiated grouping into problem-focused and emotion-focused. By and large the participants have learnt to live with the changes and feel that they have 'a good life in spite of everything'.
