    Abstract [en]

    Background: Suffering a stroke at a young age is life-changing. Reduced quality of life and well-being, and impact on relationships are some of the consequences following the disease. Some people get permanent disabilities that affects everyday life, both at home and at work. A stroke often means a trauma that is hard to handle for the individuals, and the disease is seen as something that only affects older people. Previous studies show that professional support to young individuals suffering a stroke is limited. Aim: The aim of this study was to describe young women's experiences of life after having suffered a stroke. Method: This study was made with a qualitative meaning analysis of narrative texts from six blogs, written in Swedish by women, age 26-45, living in Sweden. Results: Young women experienced life following a stroke as a constant search for meaning and coherence. They had lived through a lot of misunderstandings and they felt guilty and ashamed because they no longer fit in. The women experienced lack of professional support and therefore had to rely on their relatives for support. Conclusion: Young women who have suffered a stroke are in need of support and rehabilitation. Nursing care needs to be more person- and family centered to minimize suffering in women living with the consequences of stroke.
