To live with multiple sclerosis - a challenging everyday life : A literature review (English)
Abstract [sv]

Sjukdomen multipel skleros (MS) har en stor påverkan på personens dagliga liv. Sjukdomen påverkar såväl familjelivet och aktiviteter som arbetsförmågan hos dessa personer.  Syftet var att beskriva personers upplevelse av att leva med MS. En kvalitativ litteraturöversikt genomfördes som vid analys av materialet resulterade i två kategorier med två underkategorier till respektive kategori. Rädsla inför framtiden som beskriver den osäkerhet och rädsla som sjukdomen medför samt kategorin sjukdomen styr mitt liv som beskriver hur sjukdomen tar över och förändrar personernas liv och livssituation. Dessa fynd indikerar att det är en utmaning att leva med MS och att vårdpersonalen som möter dessa personer behöver ha en förståelse för de såväl fysiska som psykiska besvär personer med MS lever med.

Abstract [en]

Multiple sclerosis (MS) has a major impact on the person's daily life. MS affects family life and activities as the ability to work as well. The purpose was to describe people's experience of living with MS. A qualitative literature review was performed and the analysis of the material resulted in two categories and four subcategories. Fear of the future that describes the uncertainty and the fear that the disease causes, and the category The disease controls my life describing how the disease takes over and change their lives and their life situation. These findings indicate that it is a challenge to live with MS and that healthcare professionals who meet these people need an understanding of the physical and mental health problems persons with MS are living with.
