My mom has always had some sort of unconfirmed illness since I was six and I'm now 23. She thinks she's ALWAYS sick. Could it be something else psychological wrong? Here's some symptoms: She is frequently depressed. Exagerates stories and is VERY dramatic. I've found her in several lies. She has diagnosed herself with different cancers, walking nemonia, liver disorders and the newest...fybromiligia. From what I hear...fybromialgia is not diagnosable. That sounds to me like she's found a life-time illness to create for herself. I sound so mean but it's hard to be supportive when she's saying she's always sick and the doctor disputes her. I'm now responsible for her living expences and it's tough because she's like a child and is also very argumentive. HELP!!! And ideas? joeandjoie@yahoo.com Thank you!
