    Blood test could indicate you've got a type of diabetes.

    If it is somatization then its not shameful because you have that insight, it would be shameful if you had that insight and didnt do anything about it, just used the illness to maximise the caring attention you'd receive for being sick. I think Freud called that secondary gain or something like that, the things to be gained from appearing or being sick.

    somehow I read the title and was thinking more along the lines of what occurs when I eat splenda

    have you tried visiting a therapist as well as medical doctors? I know that you were offered about 10 free sessions per semester and then any more than that at a really discounted rate at my university

    the human body is a really weird thing- it always has been- stressing over things like you have been isn't helping things at all

    you're not a weirdo, you're not weak and if you look into all of the avenues of treatment you'll be fine

    Have you tried Xanax before? Or anything like it? Not anti-depressants.

    No drugs.

    I went to treatment once... but I didn't like treatment. It was a waste of money. So I stopped.

    But that doesn't stop anyone from wanting my blood.

    I can't do it...

    This is definitely malingering. There's something very wrong here.

    Regardless of whether it's malingering or not. The fact that it's inducing so much stress would, in my eyes, be considered as abnormal behaviour. I'm not sure about the nature of people who fake sickness, but for most students who do, they usually don't end up feeling guilty about it.

    Best of like finding what the causes are.
