Hypochondria as a survival mechanism?

Postby farmerjohn1324 » Mon Sep 21, 2015 11:54 am

I do not mind my hypochondria. I plan to get tested for Alzheimer's well ahead of when it develops. I will get scans for brain aneurysms, etc.

My hypochondria makes me extremely healthy.

Do you feel the same way?

For me, it does not help in any way. Makes me too anxious to think about anything :mrgreen:
So I end up lying on my bed staring at the ceiling thinking "That's it, I'm gonna die young. I'm so dead"

Well yes it's obviously tied to survival. But if it begins to negatively impact your everyday life, that's when it becomes a problem.

Excellent thread.

There are myriad benefits of hypochondria, both mental and physical... and social.

Hope we can discuss some of these here. e.g. avoiding undesirable social occasions, early warning system for health, widening your view of health...
