    Hey TSR,

    So this has been bugging me for a while. Its been about a year and a half since my last serious relationship. A lot has happened in that time period, i am a hypochondriac but i was never as severe as i am now, i also have a phobia of germs, which stops me getting close to people i don't know, especially lately with people always coughing and spluttering, its off putting.

    The problem is i am lonely, and i know with the problems that i have that its going to be incredibly difficult to get close to people or a special someone, not that i was good at it anyway as i have never been that confident.

    I do find myself wondering with all my character defects, would a girl even want to be with me? I am slowly but surely losing hope whilst everyone around me seems to be finding romance!

    Ignore all the above answers.

    If you're hypochondriac, you must go to your Doctor because its really difficult to self-treat.

    Cognitive behavioural therapy seems to work effectively for this. Don't leave it too long, act now. :hugs:
