    Military Hot Wheels, Munchausen, and Malingering
    Military Hot Wheels, Munchausen, and Malingering / by Dr Margaret Aranda /  As a doctor on a military base, "Oh! The stories I could tell!" But I first have to mention what a privilege it was to be exposed to both the personnel and the race car hot wheels, now built to withstand roadside bombings...

    #1 #2 Thank you both. Sometimes my brain injury gets in the way as I shift from jeeps to Invisible Illnesses to Malingering...but as an ER doc, I was always so afraid I would "miss" something. You know, you don't get follow-up so you never really know. I tried to do my best, and I was fresh out of med school with a stack of medical books and just jumped into that ER with only my new medical license! Learned so much...wouldn't trade it for the world. And yes, there is a long, long list of Invisible Illnesses, the 2 most common being heart disease and diabetes. Killers, both. ALL about it in my book ~ 500+pages. I focus on Immunonutrition. Perhaps I'll start posting some of those chapters in brief here.....:-).

    Thank you Madam @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD for this informative and intriguing post. I din't know much about that disease, but Cancer, Rheumatoid Arthritis Depression and Mental illness all are invisible illness. In this illness, people externally seems normal but internal problems are massive, specially in Rheumatoid Arthritis and Cancer. The cost of medical treatment in this disease is very expensive, i am not sure but I heard it! However, Great post Madam. Thank you for sharing it!
