Two Worlds, One Life: Narrative Spaces of Identity Between Health and Illness

By Sally Sargeant, Harriet Gross and David Middleton


This paper reports a component of a larger study about how adolescents adapt to chronic illness. The condition in question was Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), a medical term for two conditions, ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. Ulcerations appear on the bowel and digestive organs, which result in urgency to defecate, rectal bleeding, abdominal pain and loss of energy
