Have you ever wanted to make up an artificial medical condition to get out of having to go to work or school? Here are some tips on how to make up an artificial medical condition.
Do Your Homework
If the goal that you have is to make up a fool proof artificial medical condition then you will need to conduct some medical research. Find names of medical conditions that sound familiar to you. For example, bronchitis, kidney infection, mono, appendicitis, strep throat and chicken pox are great names of medical conditions that most people are familiar with.
Find Out the Symptoms of the Illness
The next thing you need to do is to use a search engine to find out all of the common symptoms of the illness. This will help you to mimic the symptoms as closely as possible. If for instance, you will be pretending to have mono then you would want to be lethargic, tired all of the time and have no energy.
Mono is an illness that can take people weeks to recover from so it takes a lot of effort to keep the ruse going for a long time. Search engines and medical websites are great sources of information about the illness that you will be pretending to have.
For those who are very creative individuals, you can create a brand new artificial medical condition. This task can be difficult. It is a good idea to just throw together some medical terminology for example strep throat and mononucleosis. The new illness would be strep nucleosis. It sounds like a very serious illness that someone might be suffering from.
Be As Convincing As Possible
An artificial medical condition needs an excellent actor or actress behind it makes it seem as legitimate as possible. When pretending to be ill, it is important to act as humbly as possible. This makes people empathize with your situation even more. Act as though you have lost your best friend and cannot concentrate. The more that you play along the more likely the condition is to appear to be authentic.
