Re: Am I a hypochondriac?
You are not an hypochondriac, but you will become one in time. I am no doctor but I have experienced many of the things that you are going through. I have clicked onto this board accidently and was amazed to find someone with the same symtoms as I had nearly two years ago. I would love to tell you that things will get better but if you do have the same condition as me then I'm sorry to say that things may get a little worse. I was told that I was an hypochondriac and believed my G.P. He was wrong. A year later I was diagnosed with Paranoid DID. Since diagnosis I have been sectioned twice and my medication doesn't help much, however I do have good days. I don't know if you have seen a specialist but if you haven't I would get your G.P to send you to one immediately as you will not cope with this condition (DID) if you do have it. I have been suffering for years now and I'm still having some VERY SERIOUS setbacks. Medication will not help you at first, but by having it you do get more good days than bad. As for hurting yourself, this will get worse. It did for me.
You need to see a psychiatrist NOW and explain everything. GET SOME HELP. I wish you well and all the best for the future. xxx
