I very much doubt any person is hypochondriac, just a matter of perspective and finding out the reason why, and there is always a reason. Although there is something to be said that people could use it as an excuse for serious offenses in their lives.
    I don't think there is any need to take what he said personally. The way I read his post it seemed that he was simply talking about some people with a mental illness not all people and certainly not specifically you. Of course I can't speak for other people, but that was my take on it.

    Either way there is such a thing as hypochondriasis disorder and some people do suffer from this. Their disorder does not in any way define your experiences with your disorder, invalidate them, or lessen their obvious impact on your life. It isn't as if hypochondriacs manifest only symptoms of mental illness. Some of them may very well believe they have cancer, diabetes, whatever...

    There's really not enough education out there on physiological mental illness, many people can't remain truly nonjudgmental and act normal when faced with these legitimate illnesses. My schizophrenic aunt put this really nicely-

    "I'm not really treated a person, I'm like someone who is 'ingrained in the mental health system of the greater (name of city) area.'"

    And she can have these great maniac laughing fits and have conversations with the spider on the wall and think that her name is "Prince Charming". The greater society won't relate. And I think that's a very lonely place for her to be. And when it's that bad, you can't separate it from your identity- to have normal relationships, you're like at the mercy of the public to make a point to have a clue what you're going through. And people really don't want to do that, it's the sad reality.

    (And second option, be on a lot of meds to try to fit with society. The meds don't really work because we're still medically in the dark ages about this topic.)

    Last time I checked, the OP Was on the stigma of mental illness. While this is indeed a display of that stigma in it's entirety, it doesnt' really add to the discussion... it just sort of trolls it.

    An illness is not used as a crutch. It is a crutch. It is a weight someone has to carry around, sometimes for their entire lives. If you lack an illness, consider yourself blessed.. but don't try to determine whether you think people with illnesses are faking or not. I've come across very few sick people that DESIRE the things they're dealing with.

    And I don't think a few weirdos that fake mental illnesses should be enough motivation to damn and judge everyone. That makes no sense.

    It's hard when you are powerless to affect something that's distressing a loved one. You keep thinking there's something else that could be done, there must be some way to fix it, seems like xyz should work!

    But I know. It can drive you nuts.

    Mental illness is such a farce that I can't even justify reading the op.
    Sometimes feeling sad is what you are supposed to be feeling. If you feel sad...you're not sick...you're just sad.
    Sometimes feeling angry, nervous, etc etc is what you are supposed to be feeling.
    I'm not saying you can't "not feel sad" when you take a drug...but it's not as if you are sick..you're just a normal human who is hiding (him/her)self behind drugs. Some people use drugs, others money, others sex, others success, others power...it's all the same thing in the end.

    Also, did you know you can buy prescription drugs online...without a prescription? Apparently a team of "qualified pharmacists" will write you one when you order..if you want it.
    I'm feeling a bit "depressed" (not high)...so I'm going to go "self medicate" (drug myself up). Perhaps then my problems will go away..or maybe I'll go away from my problems...or something.
