People’s experiences of living with depression : a literature review (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Depression är ett växande problem som orsakar stort lidande hos befolkningen i form av nedstämdhet, isolering och sjukskrivningar samt uppskattas bli det största hälsoproblemet i världen. Tidigare forskning belyser depression i samband med annan sjukdom. Därav behövs ökad kunskap om människor som lever med egentlig depression.

Syfte: Syftet med studien var att belysa människors upplevelser av att leva med depression

Metod: En litteraturöversikt baserad på tio kvalitativa artiklar som analyserades i enlighet med Friberg (2012). Funna nyckelord dokumenterades och användes för skapande av teman.

Resultat: Tre övergripande teman kunde identifieras, varav ett av temana innehöll två subteman. Ovisshet om sin situation belyser ett stadium före människans vetskap om sin sjukdom. Stigmatisering innefattar två subteman där samhället och anhörigas påverkan samt människans självstigmatisering bidrar till en negativ påverkan i människans livskvalitet. Personlig utveckling belyser hur människorna kan finna styrka och självinsikt både under och efter en genomgången depression.

Diskussion: Diskussionen belyser människors upplevelse av depression utifrån Rosemarie Rizzo Parse’s Human becoming teori där fokus riktades på sjuksköterskans omvårdnad.

Abstract [en]

Background: Depression is a growing problem that causes great suffering among the population in the form of dysphoria, isolation and sick leave, and is expected to be the biggest health problem in the world. Previous research highlights depression associated with other disease. Hence the need for increased knowledge of people living with major depression.

Aim: The purpose of this study was to examine people’s experiences of living with depression

Method: A literature review based on ten qualitative articles that were analyzed in accordance with Friberg (2012). Found keywords were documented and used for creating themes.

Results: Three main themes were identified, of which one of the themes contained two subthemes. Uncertainty about their situation highlights a stage before the person’s knowledge of their disease. Stigma includes two subthemes where society and relatives influence and the person’s self-stigma contributes to a negative impact on the quality of the person’s life. Personal growth highlights how people can find strength and self-perception, both during and after a depressive episode.

Discussions: The discussion highlights people’s experience of depression from the perspective of Rosemarie Rizzo Parses’ Human becoming theory, where the focus was directed at the nurse’s care.
