Abstract [en]

This study aimed to illuminate what it is like being a child with asthma. Unstructured interviews were conducted with 14 children with asthma in Sweden. The data were analyzed using a phenomenologic hermeneutic method. The results showed that the children strived to live normal lives. Sometimes they felt that they were participants in everyday life; other times they felt like outsiders. As participants, they felt confident in their own knowledge, in other people's wish to help, and that medicine would help. As outsiders, they felt deprived, guilty, lonely, anxious, and fearful. Results were interpreted from an ecosophic as well as an existential perspective.
