    Link to this blurb For the past 6 months, I've been more sick than I've ever been. According to the University of Michigan ( here ) I don't have hypochondria. What I do have currently is best illustrated in the visual depiction on the right. Hypochondria is about imagined illnesses. There is nothing imagined in the 14 gallons of phlegm I've coughed up. We store it out back, in one of those plastic paint buckets. There is nothing imagined about the days of work lost (and money; my employer insists on NOT having sick or personal days until one has worked for them at least a year). It's time to take matters into my own hands. It's time not to be sick. It's time to feel good. It's time to not keep looking down at the tissue with revulsion (and then insist that the wife look at it). It's time to swab the dog with that anti-dander stuff. It's time to spray the entire apartment in bleach. It's time to think about wearing a Tyvek body suit with respirator. 10 Comments Chad says: 14 months, eh? And how long have you known Heather? And how long has she been sicker than she's ever been? I think you see my point.

    TREATING HYPOCHONDRIA Issue of 2003-08-11
    Posted 2003-08-04 Daniel Cappello about why hypochondriacs are so scared of being sick. DANIEL CAPPELLO: Why do doctors hate hypochondriacs? Is hypochondria a disease in itself rather than just the fear of disease? And, if so, how can it be treated, medically or psychologically? sars What about race and class? Are there any data on these demographics? How do we account for these contradictory behaviors in hypochondriacs? In recent years, though, mental health has become more of a public issue, and public figures, such as Tipper Gore, have come out to try to destigmatize it. Has that helped at all, or is that paving the way for hypochondriacs? You mentioned that hypochondria is likely to be fed by increased medical coverage in the media, as well as by the Internet. Is hypochondria a disease of too much information? Has the proliferation of medical Web sites on the Internet had any palliative effect, by giving patients information that might relieve worries? aids to sars You were speaking earlier about the frustrations of not being able to cure these people. In your article, you write that a confident physician, one who simply refuses, for instance, to order another round of tests, can sometimes help. For a lay person, the impulse, when confronting a hypochondriac, might be simply to tell him or her to snap out of it. But is this fair? Can hypochondriacs help themselves?

    Cite / link Email Feedback hypochondria , in psychology, a disorder characterized by an exaggeration of imagined or negligible physical ailment. The hypochondriac fears that such minor symptoms indicate a serious disease, and tends to be self-centered and socially withdrawn. Continually seeking professional help to reinforce his fears, the hypochondriac never feels he is receiving adequate care. Contemporary theorists have arrived at similar conclusions, suggesting that the physical ailments of hypochondriacs were a form of escape from psychological stress. The disorder is technically known as hypochondriasis, and is classified as a somatoform disorder, or one in which a psychological problem manifests itself in a physical ailment.

The Illness That Isn't For Hippocrates, hypochondria meant the area under the ribs: the liver, gall bladder, spleen and stomach. The Roman physician Galen understood it as a digestive disorder, caused by "melancholia," and Freud called hypochondria a neurosis with a physical basis. But modern medicine hasn't always been able to discover any organic cause for this condition that devastates so many lives. Hypochondriacs today are people "so preoccupied with the possibility (or actuality) of becoming ill that a concern for health overshadows daily thoughts and activities far beyond reason," writes Susan Baur in Hypochondria: Woeful Imaginings (University of California Press, $19.95). It can leave people bedridden and isolated, or functional but terrified, convinced they have or are about to get some awful disease. Baur explores the many facets of a condition "so grievous, so common," yet existing in a poorly understood shadow land between medicine and psychology.

    Body Positive HIV Hypochondria
    "Am I going crazy or am I really getting sick?" By J. Buzz von Ornsteiner, Ph.D. May 2001 I tested HIV-positive one year ago. My problem is that I feel very tired and stressed out and I think every minute, "O.K. this is it, I now have AIDS!" I go to the doctor all the time and the appointments always end in the same way. This is how it goes: after a minor examination my doctor states that there is nothing wrong with me and suggests I consider psychotherapy or taking medication to control my stress level. Then I feel like I am going crazy and I leave not knowing if I am really sick or I just think I am. When I tell my friends or my parents I feel stressed, burned out and fed up, they think it's AIDS-related and encourage me to see my doctor. However, now my doctor has requested that I call him before coming in and to limit my medical visits to once a month, unless it is an emergency. Am I going crazy or am I becoming a hypochondriac?
    A Response to this Composite Case Study
    Wisely, your doctor has restricted your medical visits, suggested therapy and has indicated that he will prescribe medication for your anxiety. Please listen to what your medical doctor is telling you. Your exhaustion seems to be related to your own stress, not to your HIV status. Although this may be hard for you to consider please look at your own thoughts and how they may affect your health and daily outlook. How often do you think about your HIV status and how much do you think these thoughts effect how you feel?

    followup on hypochondria
    Apr 27, 2003 Dear Doc: re the April 23rd posting in which you diagnosed me as hypochondriac. It is/was a welcome diagnosis but one I need to double check with you. There are a couple of additional facts that I would like you to consider. Hopefully they wont cause you to change your mind. 1. The leg tingling and numbness you suggest is a classic symptom of anxiety and not hiv was what made me anxious and not the other way around. That is until I felt them and searched the Internet for possible causes it hadnt occurred to me that hiv might be a cause. 2. In addition, since my 8 week question and negative Elisa, I have had painful axilial nodes, rash on my trunk and some kind of dry white thrushy tongue thing happening as well as some possible mild fevery malaise for the last 5 to 7 days. I could be convinced that the white stinging tongue is from the stress smoking Ive been doing and the fever and general malaise may be imagined or worry induced, but the rash (looks maculopapular to my laymans eye)and the node discomfort seem harder to explain away.
