Hypochondriac or Debt -Which is worse ?

The title may sound like these two words have no relation but indeed they both sound the same but one of them is actually worse...Which one you say? Its debt, debt is the worse because its hardest to fix than this medical illness.

Hypochondriasis, hypochondria (sometimes referred to as health phobia or health anxiety) refers to excessive preoccupation or worry about having a serious illness. An individual suffering from hypochondriasis is also known as a hypochondriac. Hypochondriacs become unduly alarmed about any physical symptoms they detect, no matter how minor the symptom may be, they are convinced that they have or are about to have a serious illness.  

Hence the word “convinced”
, meaning this is merely just a phobia just like people are scared of heights, spiders,, water and more. Hypochondria can be diagnosed and treated with the proper medical care. Debt on the other hand, is more harming than hypochondria, as its nothing that can vanish over time unless the proper treatment is taken. In fact the #1 reasons for stress currently in America is DEBT.....the one thing that these two words have in common is the fact with the right treatment it to can vanish.  Nearly one-third of our population has debt of some sort whether with credit cards, home loans, student loans, hospital bills, or car loans...Reality is if you borrowed something from a financial institution if it’s not paid for in cash it’s a debt.

Here’s the question for the day, if persons with hypochondria are alarmed by certain physical symptoms that makes them believe they have an illness. Why are we as people not alarmed when we are spending all or at least half our paychecks toward debt. Hypochondriacs’ are convinced they have an illness while people with poor credit are convinced it will not take treatment to fix the mind, than the habit, than the issue.

In conclusion, if it’s easy for us to compare some things such as interest rates per lender or compare prices on a product than why isn’t it so easy to compare our financial mentality and realize that it’s going to take effort and the proper treatment to correct these types of habits of spending. So I’m going to ask you and you can comment on my blog at  ....Which is worse to you hypochondria or debt?
