Burnout syndrome - a lifelong journey? : A qualitative study on women's experiences of (trying to) recover from burnout syndrome (English)
Abstract [sv]

Denna studie syftade till att uppnå ökad förståelse för hur kvinnor drabbade av utmattningssyndrom kan uppleva att det är att försöka bli friska samt vad de anser är viktigt för tillfrisknandet. En kvalitativ metod tillämpades där sju kvinnor deltog i semistrukturerade intervjuer varpå tematisk innehållsanalys genomfördes. Analysen utmynnade i två övergripande teman, Livslång anpassning samt Förståelse och stöd. Att bli frisk efter att ha drabbats av utmattningssyndrom är en lång och komplex process. Tillfrisknandet tog sin början i insikt och acceptans men det ifrågasattes om den som drabbats någonsin blir helt frisk. Informanterna uttalade att de aldrig kommer att bli desamma som de var innan, samt att de livslångt behöver arbeta med anpassningar och strategier. Ansvaret för att bli och hålla sig frisk ligger i den drabbades egna händer, även om förståelse, stöd och hjälp i rätt tid från läkare, terapeuter, arbete, familj och vänner också behövs.

Abstract [en]

This study aimed to gain a better understanding of how women suffering from burnout syndrome may experience trying to recover and what they consider significant for recovery. A qualitative method was applied, where seven women participated in semi-structured interviews, after which thematic content analysis was conducted. The analysis resulted in two overarching themes; Lifelong adaptation and Understanding and support. To get well after burnout is a long and complex process where recovery started with insight and acceptance and it was questioned whether someone with burnout would  ever completely recover. The informants stated that they would never be the same as they were before, and that they will have to work with adaptations and strategies for the rest of their lives. The responsibility to recover and stay well lied in their own hands although understanding, support and help at the right time from healthcare, therapists, work, family and friends were also needed.
