Mastering the everyday life : The impacts of mental illnesses (English)
Abstract [sv]

Alla människor har en vardag, med rutiner, vanor och förpliktelser som upptar vår tid. I denna uppsats undersöker jag hur fyra personers vardag formas och påverkas av psykisk ohälsa. Den vardag de beskriver handlar i första hand om att bemästra den psykiska ohälsan och ta kontrollen över hur de mår. För att lyckas med detta använder de sig av olika hjälpmedel, där mediciner är det viktigaste. Medicinerna är en stor del i att informanterna kan hantera sin vardag, men den psykiska ohälsan ger även verkningar i andra aspekter av vardagen, såsom arbetsliv, ekonomi, hur de ser på sig själva och hur de uppfattas av andra. 

Abstract [en]

All people have their own routines, habits, and commitments to deal with on a daily basis. In this essay, I examine how four individuals’ everyday lives are shaped and influenced by their mental illnesses. They describe how the primary tasks of their everyday struggles are to master their mental health by controlling their mood and their feelings. To succeed with this, they use different aiding methods, where medications are the most important ones. The medications are essential in helping the informants to handle their everyday lives, but the mental illnesses also affect other aspects such as work, finance, self-image, and how they are perceived by others.
