I think I have Munchausens..

Hi there everyone,

I'm a new member here and I just thought it would be good to
post here in the hope of someone being able to give me some advice on
what to do so here goes.

When I was 16/17ish in high school I had my first out of the blue thought(?)

Partner with Munchausen or Factitious Disorder

I've been with my partner 16 years.
Before we met he had a Spinal Neurofibroma and he seemed extremely obsessed with having had this condition.
After we had been together for a few years he developed a growth on his eyelid he had surgically removed, but posted and led friends to believe it was cancer...which it wasn't. (8 years ago)
I thought we were beyond all of this until three months ago when he fell ...

Hello there, this is as update to my story 8 years on.

im worried i might have munchausen syndrome

I honestly fantasize about being sick, having people finally pay attention to me, people wanting to see me even if it's out of pity. I once did go far enough to inject myself with bacteria, but the intent was hopefully to die not to get sick. I don't know what's wrong with me and I could use some support or advice.

My friend is obsessed with being ill - what to do?

Hello everyone,

I have come here to ask for help and advice with regards to how I should approach a friend who I strongly suspect is suffering from Munchausen Syndrome.

We have been friends for more than 20 years, and she has so many great qualities that I treasure in her. However, her concern and apparent obsession with doctors, examinations and hospitals is beginning to become a burden for our friendship. To make a long ...

I really am lost

I definitely wouldn’t say “you’re not alone” because I don’t know how that would help. Obviously you’re not alone.
I went to the ENT about tonsil stones and he said the only thing he could do was perform surgery. I perked up immediately as my out of pocket is paid after just having a knee scope. I immediately decided I was getting my tonsils out. I had to wait a month which was almost unbearable ...

Munchausen's by Proxy - or am I just being paranoid?

Good evening all! I am posting this in the hope that someone will tell me not to be so silly and that I'm imagining things. I've certainly been spending too much time on my own. Think I'd better add that I'm a 48 year old female.

I've got a tricky relationship with my Mum and step-dad. Mum is can be very controlling & hyper-critical, while step-dad appears to tick all the boxes for NPD - ...
