    Knightrider is not the guy - this is why we need to be careful if things like this happen.

    I know KR in person. He rarely posts because he's too busy with his real and hot girlfriend.

    As if! If you were gay, I would have been Down Under years ago to see those blue eyes in person. Yes, ladies, he has the most beautiful blue eyes. I sometimes call Brock blue eyes as a nickname.

    Bringing this back to Munchausen, I wonder how many sufferers join "be cured of the dreaded gay!" forums for support?

    Bringing this back to our community, it usually sucks when it happens.
    ...it's worse than we thought. it turns out the people at the white house are not secret muslims, they're nerds.

    Interestingly (at least to me) a facebook friend has been posting excerpts from a book she currently reading for work. I thought this one was germane to Steven's original post....


    "People who do hideous things do not look like people who do hideous things. There is no 'face of evil.' In the real world, the bad guys do not look the way they are supposed to. They do not resemble werewolves or Hannibal Lechter or Tony Perkins staring at a corpse in a rocking chair. On the contrary, they look like us." - The Sociopath Next Door.

    I thought Munchausen by Proxy was when they used their children, and what you described was Hypochondriac. Or is it all one in the same?

    They are not the same.

    Münchausen syndrome
    is a term for psychiatric disorders known as Factitious Disorders wherein those affected feign disease, illness, or psychological trauma in order to draw attention or sympathy to themselves.

    Münchausen Syndrome by Proxy (MSbP), is the Factitious Disorder by Proxy, is a disorder in which a person deliberately causes injury or illness to another person (most often his or her child), usually to gain attention or some other benefit. The perpetrator can be a parent, spouse, or other caregiver, with the victims being anyone under their care.

    Hypochondriasis (or hypochondria, often referred to as health phobia or health anxiety) refers to an excessive preoccupation or worry about having a serious illness. Often, hypochondria persists even after a physician has evaluated a person and reassured them that their concerns about symptoms do not have an underlying medical basis or, if there is a medical illness, the concerns are far in excess of what is appropriate for the level of disease.
