Disability - May 26th 2009, 07:43 PM

For some reason, sometimes I really want to have a disability. I think it's a mental disorder (I'm a hypochondriac... my counselor tells me I'm not but I still think I'm a hypochondriac).

Sometimes I wish I was blind, or I was missing a foot or toes or something, or maybe that I didn't have hands. I'd hate to not have hands 'cause I need them to type... but still, sometimes I wish I was missing a limb or something.

I've heard of a disorder in which people try to get their legs or something removed because it feels extra or something, but I don't think I have that issue.

I just want to know if I might really have a mental issue and if so, what is it?
Or is this normal?

BTW my other issues, in case it helps, are depression-anxiety, self-harming (not for a year, though), and OCD. And a strong belief that I am a hypochondriac.
