CDR: Unionchondriasis

Unionchondriasis, sometimes referred to as unemployment phobia or benefit separation anxiety, refers to excessive preoccupation or worry about having a serious occupational crisis, which causes the sufferer to feign or fabricate illness, ironically, to avoid performing the responsibilities of the very job believed to be at risk in order to protest the terms and conditions of his or her current employment, usually in a highly public display or demonstration which is often reported in the media.

Unionchondriasis disorder is a political form of conscious malingering, and often involves group factitious disorders (deliberately producing, feigning, or exaggerating symptoms), in extreme cases aided and abetted by a conspiring sympathetic physician.
