Re: Friend is a mega hypochondriac
I am not sure, but I work with one. I simply listen to her and offer her the one thing she is looking for ....attention and sympathy. Generaly..and odly..that stops her for a bit. SHe is just lonely, and wants for someone to hear her and believe that she doesnt feel right.
I also know it is dangerous to assume that nothing is wrong....Of course ther are many people that behave this way as I said for attention. Then there are many that are truly not feeling right and have yet to be diagnosed. Believe me I know how tiring it is....I want so badly to roll my eyes and say "Get over yourself" but that wouldnt help either. Just listen and let her know that you are there for her.
