Munchhausen Syndrome

“Munchausen’s syndrome is a psychological disorder where someone pretends to be ill or deliberately produces symptoms of illness in themselves. Their main intention is to assume the “sick role” so that people care for them and they are the centre of attention.”

People be trippin with this whole Covid thing. The problem is, you can never tell someone they are being too safe.

Nothing better than telling others about your ailments to get attention. Everyone has their own risk appetite and there is nothing you can do about it. If they want to wear a mask in the car alone, they can. If they want to double mask, they can. If they want the triple tax, they can get it. People were sanitizing groceries. People were wearing face shields with a mask.

One thing i could see is that it gave people meaning again. Sometimes our lives are soooo boring that it takes a pandemic to give others something to believe in. People took the pandemic and made it their personal problem and not the worlds problem.

It takes a special person to use a sickness or ailment for attention. The masses are now using their fight with covid to identify themselves.

Let’s get 1% better everyday
