Review of Related Literature and StudiesThis study was anchored by the theory of Bury's (1982) "Notion of Chronic Illness" as a biographical disruption, along with Paterson's (2001) shifting perspectives model of chronic illness as the theoretical frameworks in the research study. According to Bury, chronic illness can be viewed as a critical situation causing disruption in three distinct areas of the ill person's life; their taken-for-granted assumptions, their biography and the person's mobilization of resources. How the person experiences his/her illness and makes meaning of it will depend on the resulting levels of disruption to each of these three areas. As the affected person's symptoms become more prevalent, the disease begins to structure his/her everyday life, and then very foundations of the individual's pre-illness conceptions and beliefs are toppled. The loss of taken-for-granted assumptions can in turn alter the individual's biography. A new understanding of the illness, the consequences it has on the person, as well as the effect it has on love ones are all incorporated into chronically ill person's life stories, changing how they view themselves as individuals. While struggling to deal with the emotional and psychological implications of their disease, the affected individuals may simultaneously experience a disruption in the mobilization of resources (Bury, 1982). The type of support received by the affected person, his or her social interaction with others
