I think that it is good you realise you cant do this on your own. Yes they might be concerned given what you are studying but it is important you show them that you want to recover. It might be worth phoning a mental health line for doctors and med students anonymously first to see what people think would happen should you seek help. I know it is a difficult place to be in tho.

So long and thanks for all the fish

Thank you all for sharing your stories... as a mom who suspects her daughter has Munchausen's it is very helpful for me to read your post. I wish the best health for all of you getting through this. Life is hard & we ALL have issue's we have to work on. Also as mom going through this with my daughter. I just wanted to say getting into help & getting better is all you should think about... no worries about the past. Your family wants you back with them & well. I don't feel that I would need my duaghter to confess her history on this to me. I don't think I even want to know the details. I Just want her to take good care of herself going forward so we can have a realtionship and be a family with trust and she can live a normal life. Also there is always guilt in life, always.

Also your family probably suspects something is going on. They may have never heard of muchausen's &feel guilty for doubting you. My point is your probably not as scott free getting away with it as you think. Getting better will remove the stress & resentment you may not even realize that is coming across from your loved ones.

I have question & I would love to have it answered by some one who has muchausen's. My duaghter too is in the medical field. To me it seems part of heeling would require one to move to a different career. Wouldn't being in the medical field bring constant temptation every day? Sort of like an alcoholic working in a bar?

Please forgive my ignorance if I insult. I am just trying to learn & help the best I can too. I pray for heeling for each of you & for your families. What ever your faith is, please pull on this higher power it will help through. Stay strong & God bless you.

Thank you for your honesty.
you deserve help and recovery.
i think this should be pinned everywhere so that people know that MS is valid, and people affected are worthy of treatment.
This is to everyone who believes MS is not real.
It's not.
(p.s i dont have MS, i just like learning about it)
