Lünchausen Syndrome

Lünchausen syndrome is a psychiatric disorder wherein those affected know they are hungry, and that they must eat, but are paralyzed by the weight of deciding what or where to eat.

First coined by Wendy Englebardt in February 2014.

The only known treatment is finding a friend to choose for you. Skipping meals only makes the symptoms worse.

    Is this similar to D-hydrant proxy? Another psychiatric disorder, typically experienced in bed, when the sufferer is too lazy to roll over to drink from a glass of water less than 6″ away. Effects are exacerbated after a night of drinking where the laziness is so great the impending hangover is insufficient to motivate action.

  2. After I originally left a comment I appear to have clicked the
    -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on
    whenever a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment.
    Perhaps there is an easy method you are able to remove me from that
    service? Thanks a lot!
