Abstract [sv]

Att bli diagnostiserad med en kronisk sjukdom som Multipel Skleros (MS) kan vara förödande både fysiskt och psykiskt. Det beror mycket på hur personen med MS hanterar sin nya situation. Studier visar att det finns många sätt att hantera sjukdomen på. Detta kan sammanfattas som copingfaktorer. Syftet med denna studie var att, baserat på självbiografier, beskriva utmärkande copingfaktorer hos personer med Multipel Skleros. Studien har en kvalitativ ansats och åtta självbiografier lästes och analyserades. Resultatet visar att personer hanterar sin sjukdom på många olika sätt. Utmärkande copingfaktorer sammanfattades i sex teman med underliggande subteman: Få närståendes kärlek, Kunskapstillväxt, Få tala ut, Drivkrafter, Ta emot hjälp och Acceptera det nya livet. Det är av stor vikt att sjuksköterskor och övrig sjukvårdspersonal ökar sin kunskap om copingfaktorer för att få en ökad förståelse för personer med MS och därmed lättare kunna identifiera var extra kraft ska läggas.
