What is the treatment for hypercondriac?

My sister-in-law I beleave is a hyperocondrac and I want to know what kind of treatment that I can do with her with out her knowing. I do beleave that it is all a mind game. And can be cured with a mind game. For instince, A patient keeps going into the ER for migraine but is just seeking meds. If a Dr. just puts in an IV with flouds and injects into it sailine but tells the patient that they are giving them a new drug that helps with migrains and it is the best on the market. That patient will fell with-in munites that the meds. are working. But in reality all that they were given was the sailaine flush insteed. An I correct of am I correct. I thank this should be done in every ER. After working in an hospital as an patient access service clerk for over 11 years. I know that this will work. It just it not good pratice correct. Who cares if it works then use it. We know who are the drug seekers. The one who are aslo hyperconderatc. So why when nothing is found don t the ER doc talk to the family members that are there with the pt. see what is goinbg on and take an dicition and tell a little fib. make up an issuse and give it a cure. Like you are low on on iron for example of something like that where you can percribe meds that have no effect on anything like taking an vitiman of something. If we know that it is just a mind game and the pt thanks that she is being treated with for her illness ya it still might take a few time to cure them but I am a firm beleaver that this will cure thousands of patient dailey. Just thank about too. less of a waist of supplies less charges less money spent by the hospital. I do beleave that this is the merical cure that can cure a lot of illnesses. But I know that morals are involeved fuck that. Just give the pt what they what, Or what that want to hear and creat a cure. You need to come in for aniboitic for 3 visites it will take 30 min. per visit make them thank that they are reciving some kind of treatment for there illiness. cured with an IV of sailaine. Peace of cake now just get passed in the real world and there would be much less illness like this due to a cure for theie illness that is not an illness.

Hi there ~

I hear the frustration about the hypochondriac. It is easier said than done when you talk about care giving to such hypochondriacs. My question is - how have you been caring for yourself. Hypochondriacs will almost never improve, however it is good to take care of yourself to be able to take care of the hypochondriac. I will give you this - kudos for having take care of a hypochondriac. However, you should also take care of yourself.

I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day !
