Abstract [en]

This study explored the lived experience of everyday life of persons aged 50 + with ADHD. ADHD is mostly seemed affecting children and young adults, but ADHD persists in adulthood and affects everyday life of people even in older ages. To explore the experiences of the participants, individual interviews were made. A phenomenological-hermeneutical method inspired by Paul Ricoeur was chosen for the interpretation of the text. Two themes revealed after the structural analysis: 1) being different and trying to handle my inner self; managing feelings of being different, disorganized and forgetful, developing strategies to handle the difficulties of being different, having to control impulses and energy and 2) trying to adapt to fit in with people around me; struggling to adapt in social relationships, dealing with work life and economy. The comprehensive understanding was interpreted as Being different but striving to seem normal. This study illuminates the need of Integrative health science, covering several fields of science and giving focus on cooperation and teamwork with different professions.
