hypochondria is a branch of phobias so there is the possibility that there are a few true cases of debilitating phobias due to fear of aliens but no
where near the numbers of hypochondriacs as it has become it own complicated disease over the years.
A lot of my patients are hypochondriacs where i'd expect them to re act in a much different way then they have been to the swine flu I even prepared
a bunch of safety packets and other things in case the anxiety became to much for them, even expected a few of them to need to hospitalized for their
own safety, over all in the general public at least in my area I'm surprised at the lack of reaction to the swine flu, everyone I've come across
seems to think it's no big deal and being blown out of proportion.
And I really haven't heard of any "mass hysteria" true to it's form happening anywhere in the world.
I think it would be harder for people to deal with aliens because it would make them question a lot of things, things that they have followed and
believed their entire lives. This could cause anger and fear not just fear of the aliens themselves but fear of what their life will become when the
cease to exist here on earth mostly for those who live on a faith based system.
I remember when I lived out in the boonies of the pine barrons and saw a UFO(not meaning it was alien or other wise simply it was something strange
I've never seen before, and crashed into the woods, could have been anything) but my over active imagination started to take over and I started to
think "oh god I've seen something I shouldn't have" and actually for a brief moment of insanity that they might come get me!
It's just hilarious to me I have to embrace my insanity and just laugh at it, but something like that on a large scale all over the world oh god,
we'd be done for people would have stokes and massive heart attacks if they were all like me before the aliens could even inidicate what they are
Aliens scare me the idea of them the possibility that they have more power and technology the lack of knowing their motives and so on it's like being
locked in a room with a pit bull he has more power then you but you can not read his mind, does he want to rip your throat out or does he want to play
go fetch and be pet?
You can't possibly know these things for sure until there is some kind of action that takes place until that defining action comes you really can't
But humans never lack to surprise me.
I can't wait till the day where we may find out, and can't wait to see all the interesting thread titles haha.
This is a really interesting post and really enjoy a lot of the peoples opinions and fews on this topic everyone is just so unique.
