How real is Hypochondria? Do I sound like one through my story since I was diagnosed with it?
I applied for a job, and then I got it until I refused to sign a contract with a marker since marker could kill brain cells. The boss looked at me as if I was insane, and then I was denied the job since he didn't want somebody frightening his employees after he saw that I was diagnosed with Hypchondria. Has anybody even read the articles of what markers do? How can anybody not be afraid to not use them since they kill brain cells from just smelling them? I was also denied for throwing away his hand sanitizer since that has Alcohol and this type kills brain cells and you can get high off of it, and I even brought him a bottle of the cleanest soap out there after I told him what Hand Sanitizer does to peoples brains. I even have a history of refusing to be around people since they have germs, and I've tried putting myself into institutions for Schizophrenia (they said that I don't have it for some reason), Mental Retardation (they said that I have an intelligence quotient in the genius range), Bipolar Disorder (they said that I don't have that either for some reason), Cancer (they said that I don't have it either, and I don't believe them), Down's Syndrome (this was ridiculous and I was messed up when I tried this one since I know that I don't have this now) and I even tried to get into one for people with Fragile X (they said that I don't have this). I was brought into a doctor yesterday after a close friend noticed that there's something severely wrong with me, and they pinned me with the 'Hypochondriac' label after I stated that my germ phobia is normal for me. I've even tried hiding myself from them since I was afraid that the doctors would jab me with a needle that could lead to HIV. I've even tried not eating for a few days since I was afraid that it would lead to some kind of poison, and I know that's just the lack of common sense. I'm wondering if this sounds like 'Hypochondria' when I know that I have severe Mental Retardation and that the Psychologists are lying to me since they're in dishonest, and they're the one who are in denial?

If this is true, and you were diagnosed with hypochondriasis, then I would agree that you are a hypochondriac. A psychologist has no motive for lying to you.

I think you really have underlying OCD. You read to much into what the media is telling you, stop that. There is a saying, everything is good in moderation. Thats true, cocaine is even good in moderation. Back during Pearl Harbor our own President was high on coke due to a sinus cold that they treated with cocaine. So... More

You don't have Hypochondria, you have Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Purely_Obsessional_OCD Open the link and look at the section describing "Health" That's what I think you have.

I believe you have OCD and Hypochondria. You are apparently not mentally retarded as you have typed this, spelled correctly, used punctuation etc.. a doctor isn't going to tell you have cancer if you don't. Severe Hypochondria with a severe germ phobia that has escalated into OCD
