      Abstract

      This study specifically investigates the experiences of young people, and their
      management of everyday living alongside the demands of Inflammatory Bowel
      Disease (IBD). In life-story interviews, 20 adults aged 20-25 years, diagnosed
      with IBD during adolescence related their experiences of growing up with
      IBD, providing examples of adolescent life issues.
      Participants presented many accounts introducing different perspectives of
      living publicity and privately with a chronic illness. This paper examines
      expressions of public and private experience that can be found within this
      dataset. Three emergent issues are discussed: the public environment, the
      nature of protection and of being protected, and the private self alongside the
      external bodily self.
      These accounts demonstrate a need for further longitudinal research to be
      conducted into the experiences of young people and how they narrate their
      experiences of everyday life with IBD prospectively, using diary methods and
      further interviews.
