Abstract: What is the experience like for young adults living with Crohn's disease or colitis? This question provided the focus for interviews and written narratives of 10 participants in a study exploring the perceptions of, responses to, and management of the life experience of living with an illness. Qualitative approaches to research, involving phenomenological principles, guided the study. A synopsis of each individual participant’s interview and written narrative comprise a large part of the body of the thesis. Eight themes, established from the interviews and written narratives of all participants, describe the essence of the phenomenon.
