Why isnt this called the Hypochondria forum?

It makes me angry when people who DO NOT have a serious illness and dwell on their active thoughts of dying.Hypochondriacs are a severe problem to the health system as they waste valuable medical resources and time.

I looked on a website regarding a persons suffering of a brain tumour, and the courage and dignity that he has fighting this terrible illness.Never does he metion any of the condesending things that are mentioned here.

Im so pissed off.it makes me sick.

there reply away with your negative thoughts. im not replying to any of them and nor will i view them.goodbye. :x :x :x :x :x

So a mental illness is not real? Why even take the time to make your post? If you don't like the way people react to things troubling them then just say "They suck" to your self and move on.

You piss me off..

Justin,
I realize that you have only have had a brief time with dp and that you do not experience it anymore (as we have spoken before). I am glad you are well... but please understand that people here are suffering very much... it is not up to you to judge nor can you possibly understand what another is going through. People come here for support because they are hurting. I have been through some horrific medical conditions and in comparision it was so much easier to handle than a mental condtion. This is real and it is terrible. I can see why it would annoy someone who is not experiencing it, but as was mentioned before, why even read posts then.

I'm glad you have an opinian, now you've got off your chest - go to hell.

But in saying we are a problem to the health system is a very wrong view, as there are doctors for every type of illness.

We have psychiatrists, we bother psychiatrists.... and that in term is not going to cause any problems within the health system.

Unless you want a psychiatrist to cut out your tumours or fix them broken bones.

Hypochondriacs need medical assistance also, all mental illness need help from the health system.

Otherwise, I'm sure alot would agree that the suicide rates would hit the roof.

Ya just let us know just how little you know, First of all to have a mental illness isn't like having cancer no people understand cancer well if they don't they still DON'T CRITICIS! It's a horrible illness some have it more server then others and this DP has destroyed MY LIFE and considering it has I still have a smile on my face and I don't constantly THINK negative but I'm also thankfull that I can say that because I couldn't when this DP started! Now as far as this web site, fINALLY theres someone that I can relate to and that's one of the hardest things is to be alone with this ILLNESS DON'T FORGET! ILLNESS! GOT THAT WRITE IT DOWN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A yes Im a terrible spelling thats something you can talk about that won't sound so ignorant! Rebecca

I don't know why you posted this Justin. Anger? Smells like it to me.

Suffering is relative. One man's broken finger-nail is another man's cancer. Of course we can judge on an individual basis, but the vast majority on this forum have serious mental health issues. And one of the reasons people come to this site is because people here relate to their problems and offer sympathy and support, without the usual eye-rolling and sighing that we get from healthy people who are not in the know and who just assume that we are hand-wringing whingers. If more people understood the nature and weight of suffering from DR/DP/Depression causes, then we might start to tackle the misconceptions.

I have cancer, and I no longer have DR/DP. And I tell you something, if I had to choose one over the other, I'd take leaukemia everytime. I can't put the horror of DR/DP into words.

Very diplomatic Martin. Your moderating skills are very well honed.

Justin, your comments were insensitive. People are feeling pain and this is one of the few places we can go to get relief because people can relate to our symptoms. I once told a friend that sometimes my limbs feel like there not mine and he inadvertently laughed. He noticed how disturbed I looked, quickly composed himself and apologised. For people who have never experience the pain of DP/DR have no clue what it's like and that's why this board is a god sent. So if your feeling better either help others who are suffering or politely phuck off! (Oops, not so diplomatic....sorry).

what a stupid idiot, I wish I could give him some of my DP, so he could feel what it is like to be nervous of yourself, feel completely isolated, have your identity and your soul taken away, he would seen see things differently. I think mental illness is worse than physical illness.

I hate people like this, that just think pulling yourself together is the answer. It isn't, otherwise we all would have pulled ourselves together.

If anyone knows this person, hit him in the face!!

Really Justin, in the past I suffered from a long-term, quite serious "physical" illness with a lot of pain, but it was nothing compared to what I've been through with dp.

Anyway, bet you do read these replies.
