Fake it til you break it

Today, my dad has been faking social anxiety to make me feel like there's something wrong with me. How do I know? Because I actually have social anxiety, and he not only shows no symptoms of it, but he also has a lot of misconceptions about it that he would know are false if he actually did have it. FML

People who have mental illnesses both 1) hide their symptoms of them and 2) have misconceptions about them. All the time.

Or maybe you're the one faking it, and is misinformed about what it is. How can we know? I submit that the one who comes to FML for therapy may not be the genuine one.
