Abstract

Chronic anorexia nervosa (cAN) is a challenging presentation for the clinician. Motivation to recover is low, and outcomes are often poor. Within this study. six participants, currently in treatment, were interviewed. These interview transcripts were analysed using Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis. The results highlighted five superordinate themes resulted from the analysis and these referred to the following points: (1) ‘making sense of AN’, (2) ‘experience of treatment/treatment’, (3) ‘interpersonal relationships’, (4) ‘battling with anorexia’ and (5) ‘staff pessimism in the treatment of cAN’. These results highlighted how the self is entwined with anorexia nervosa and thus making it incredibly difficult to perceive a life without cAN.
