- Kurzbeschreibung<p>This study examined the impact of early onset Type 1<br>diabetes on the development of the self and identity<br>in 20 adults age 20 or older who were diagnosed at<br>age five or younger. This study aimed to provide<br>insight into the intrinsic effects of a chronic<br>illness, as distinct from the adaptive process that<br>occurs when a person is diagnosed later in life. The<br>study employed a qualitative approach of descriptive<br>research in which systematic descriptions of the data<br>were provided.<br>This study found that participants generally felt<br>fortunate to have developed diabetes at a younger<br>age, as they did not have to cope with the process of<br>adjustment. Respondents mostly reported that the<br>diabetes had become integrated into their sense of<br>self. A number of character traits were thought to<br>have developed such as: being cautious or<br>disciplined; feeling greater appreciation of health;<br>being proud of surviving so long; developing inner<br>strength; and feeling greater appreciation for life.<br> All of the participants expressed having felt some<br>degree of difference when interacting with people who<br>did not have the condition. Some respondents felt<br>that their differences made them special. </p>
