Resumé

The article deals with the disease field chronic diffuse pains, here exemplified by fibromyalgia, where patients are frequently rendered homeless in an objectivity focused medical treatment system, whose specialities (ideally seen) are mutually exclusive, and where the absence of a diagnosis therefore poses a fundamental problem. In the treatment field there is, however, also a bio-psycho-social approach, and these two treatment regimes are respectively termed as a chrObjective approach and a holistic subject approach.

By empirical examples, from stories by both therapists and patients, the article describes how the actors navigate between the two treatment regimes, to which the patients must necessarily adapt in their wish for acceptance and assistance from both sides. The authors further discuss to which degree the two treatment regimes are actually incompatible. The interviews and observation of participants, which constitute the empirical basis for the article, were carried out among therapists and patients in Denmark in 2010.
