It hurts to live, but I do not want to die : Women´s experiences of living with terminal cancer based on blogs (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: År 2016 diagnostiserades 28 179 kvinnor med en cancersjukdom i Sverige. Majoriteten blir friskförklarade med hjälp av behandling, men för vissa får sjukdomen en dödlig utgång. Att leva med obotlig cancer innebär en fysisk och psykisk belastning som påverkar välbefinnandet på ett negativt sätt. Sjuksköterskan har till uppgift att stödja patienten till en ökad känsla av livskvalitet och välbefinnande, samt att minska lidandet. Syfte: Examensarbetets syfte var att belysa vuxna kvinnors upplevelser av att leva med en obotlig cancersjukdom. Metod: En kvalitativ metod där datainsamlingen bestod av sju bloggar. En analys av narrativer användes enligt Fribergs modell. Resultat: Ur analysen av datamaterialet framkom tre kategorier; Sjukdoms- och livslidande, det här är inte jag, samt det är för er jag lever. Utifrån dessa kategorier skapades sju underkategorier. Slutsats: Att leva med en obotlig cancersjukdom innebar stora förändringar i kvinnornas liv. Känslor av rädsla och ovisshet relaterat till sjukdomsförloppet var något som ständigt fanns hos dem. De närståendes stöd motiverade kvinnorna till att orka kämpa för att fortsätta leva så länge som möjligt. Sjuksköterskor kan stödja denna patientgrupp genom att öka sin förståelse angående deras situation.   

Abstract [en]

Background: In Sweden, 28 179 women were diagnosed with cancer in 2016. The majority of those who receive a cancer diagnosis are cured with treatment, but for some, the disease becomes terminal. Living with terminal cancer involves physical and mental stress that impacts a person’s well-being in a negative way. One of the responsibilities of nurses is to support their patient to increase their quality of life and well-being, as well as to reduce their suffering. Aim: The aim of the study was to highlight the experiences of adult women living with terminal cancer. Method: A qualitative method where the data collection consisted of seven blogs. An analysis of the narratives was used according to Friberg's model. Results: An analysis of the data showed it could be divided into three categories; Illness and life suffering, this is not me, and finally It is for you that I keep on living. Based on these categories, seven subcategories were created. Conclusion: Living with terminal cancer caused major life changes for the women. Feelings of fear and uncertainty related to the course of the illness was constantly present with them. The support of relatives motivated women to fight to live for as long as possible. Nurses can support these group of patients by increasing their understanding of the circumstances these women go through.
