dc.description.abstractDelayed sleep phase disorder (DSPD) is a disorder where the circadian rhythm is delayed according to the conventional norms, often resulting in school- and work related difficulties as well as emotional challenges. Research on the experiences of having DSPD is lacking, and to enhance our understanding we conducted a qualitative study using indepth semi structured interviews focusing on the challenges of having DSPD. A sample of 9 participants (16-23 years) diagnosed with DSPD was interviewed and analysis was done using systematic text condensation. A core theme in all interviews was how to cope with different challenges related to the disorder. We labelled the identified challenges: 1) To give something up; 2) To blame something or someone and 3) To have a problem or not. Awareness of these challenges adds to our understanding of the daily struggles of those with DSPD and may improve clinicians` competence and ability to help them.en_US
