Yup
I can manufacture symptoms as well
It’s hard to sometimes know what’s real and what I’m imagining

I dont want to be a drain on the system but when do you draw the line.



*edit*

What do you do to "cope" ?

You should never feel like you're a drain on the system if you're dealing with a serious ailment. Thinking you have something wrong with you can be just as bad (or in some cases worse) as having something wrong with you if it's a disorder.

Typically hypochondria is the manifestation of untreated anxiety.

I'm the opposite, I usually ignore symptoms until things become real bad.

Same. One time I had strep throat and pneumonia at the same time, wrote it off as a cold until the back of my throat literally turned black.

I'm a freakin' idiot.

At least you're aware of it.

I've treated a lot of people who seem to want to be injured and sick. By far the most frustrating people to treat.

Well there was one time a few years back where I had a bad cough, but thought I would get over it, and sat on it until I started coughing up blood.


There was another time where I had a really bad flu, Thought I would do the typical thing, my girl friend kept telling me to see a doctor, but I was like, its a freaking flu. Then she came home and I was on the floor and ended up taking a delirious ambulance ride and had a nice conversation with the devil.



I lied to a doctor after I suffered a major concussion because I was terrified of what he would say. No sir, I'm not nauseous, and not throwing up. Spots on my vision, no sir, just a bit of a head ache.



I've never had a gauge on real bad, frankly I hate going to doctors, and I hate hospitals and do anything I can do to avoid them.

Yeah same here, I once taped 2 fingers together because I broke one wrestling and didn't want to miss my 3rd day of work at a new job for what I thought was just a stupid finger, man was I wrong, It's freaky how a little finger can cause so much pain and ruin your day, boss found out, asked me if I was stupid and sent me to the hospital.

I once had a roommate that had the flu at least 4 times a year so yeah, since that's impossible I figure he was sort of a hypochondriac

So I've been on both extremes. I used to be like this. I'd get frequent nausea and stomach pain and just chock it up to being a wimp. Then I got diagnosed with Crohn's disease and they told me I was in danger of losing chunks of my digestive track and now I freak out over every little thing. Also doesn't help that I'm on immunosuppressing drugs which can cause a bunch of weird ####. Ive already had a bunch of weird infections/diseases that most people my age don't get. Also why I have an extra seething hatred for anti-vaxxers.

Also the reason I sometimes disappear for a few days at a time or can be kind of a flippant dick to people here. I don't actually have any real animosity to most of the posters here but often I'm dealing with physical symptoms from the Crohn's BS or mental symptoms from the mood disorders I have. Might be over sharing a bit a here but I do sometimes worry about my tone.

Always better to be safe than sorry! Go to the Doctor!

I have personal experience of a friend who just thought he had a flu he couldn’t shake and did not go, with a tragic result.

I ignored a lot of things and it ended up with having to have heart surgery, that was kind of bad I guess.
