I'm kind of in a mess right now, and I would like some help in getting to grips with what happened to me.
It's been 5 years, roughly, that the term Münchhausen by proxy rings in my head. A friend of mine is the first who voiced it to me, after I explained to him what I went through. The description "feels" right, could be argued to fit symptoms to some extent, but I feel uncomfortable with it. I'd like to know what other people may feel about it. I'd be specifically interested in opinions of people who would be keen on disproving it.
My mother is a psychiatrist.
It feels difficult for me to say more in one go. Please ask questions so that I may open up. I'll do that gladly.
I'd really like to know what to think of it and what I could do to move forward. Moreover, please note that I am French, so comparisons with the US, and specifically the US medical system or US medical procedures, may be flatly inadequate. Please bear with me.
