Best Answer

A hypochondriac is a person who "enjoys" being sick. They spend much of their time thinking about themselves and their bodies, and worry constantly about being sick or having something happen to them. They are obsessed with germs, diseases, illnesses, injuries, and other bodily complaints. Many times, these people worry about being sick so much that they actually make themselves feel bad, which is why doctors sometimes tell them that "it is all in your head." A hypochondriac can read about a disease, and will think that they have the symptoms of the disease, or they can convince themselves that something in their body is damaged or diseased. Therapy and medication can help hypochondriacs to stop worrying and enjoy their lives.
