Hypochondria is an user-defined disorder limited only by the determination, resourcefulness and imagination of the afflicted person. There are two general types of the disease: that which is entirely imagined, and that perceived by a physician as hypochondria, but is in fact a yet to be diagnosed disease or condition. Although less common today, women tend to be told "it's in your head" or the equivalent more than men. The idea of hysteria is still refusing to jump into a coffin and have a dignified funeral. I looked up the symptoms of hypochondria and I'm pretty sure I'm getting it..... I'm dying.... SEE?
