My friend is a true hypochondriac. She has every disease for which there is no no medical verification, only a list of symptoms. She is elderly. Her health is better than most her age, and so they are intolerant of her. But she does feel terrible. No arthritis, no blood disorders, no gerd. Just feels terrible and sleeps all the time. Goes to psychiatrist every week. How do I help her? I am the only one left who will listen to her, and I feel like I am feeding into it. Any suggestions? Her feeling bad is truly real. But it is hell on all around her.
