As regards emotional dysregulation…


Munchausen Syndrome
:

Munchausen syndrome is a type of factitious disorder, or mental illness, in which a person repeatedly acts as if he or she has a physical or mental disorder when, in truth, they have caused the symptoms. People with factitious disorders act this way because of an inner need to be seen as ill or injured, not to achieve a concrete benefit, such as financial gain. They are even willing to undergo painful or risky tests and operations in order to get the sympathy and special attention given to people who are truly ill. Munchausen syndrome is a mental illness associated with severe emotional difficulties.

Althousen Syndrome:

Althousen Syndrome is a type of factitious disorder, or mental illness, in which a person repeatedly acts as if he or she has been unfairly maligned when, in truth, they merely seek attention. People with factitious disorders act this way because of an inner need to be seen as “put upon” or aggrieved, in order to draw unsuspecting people into their “vortex”, a state of delusional self-satisfaction. They are even willing to undergo mocking or public humiliation in order to get the sympathy and special attention usually given to people who are much more interesting. The warning signs of Althousen Syndrome include the following:

  • Burning ears
  • Thinning of the skin
  • Chronic word sense disambiguation (WSA)
  • Uncontrollable rage triggered by the word “boobie

Patients are advised to step slowly away from the computer, avoid boxed wines and ….boobies.
