WELL NICOLE....
I AM A HYPOCHONDRIAC...I have not been diagnosed with it but I know for sure. I am always "sick". Although I really feel these illness's , when I go to the doctor , There is nothing wrong with me. Well Until recently I have gotten really bad with it. I haven't been able to go out with my friends, go to family events..etc. I am just so scared that I will get sick.
I never believed that I was a hypochondriac until a few months ago. Everyone called me one and I used to get so mad at them. What they don't realize is Hypochondrais IS a disease, a mental one. I am looking around to seek help now, because it is affecting my social life now. I am only 19 years old and I live my life as if I am a 80 year old hermit. Thats about all the information I have, I mean i still haven't looked into it much but if you have any questions I could try to help.
