Well, well, I think i could say i had enough patient who practiced this act. Have you ever tried this? Actually, lately I had a patient doing such, and his boss knew about it so a lot of people were pissed off because he was actually making use of it to get out from work. Hmmm...if you have ever tried this. A follow up question would be, why did u do it?

dear doctor.. you have tried to give out a wonderful discussion, using a technical term. and, there are idiots like me, who do not understand even simple english.. so, for those like me, .. malingering is .. FABRICATING illness, to skip a duty .. you read more about this here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malingering ---------- now, it is tough to prove that one is really sick, or one is pretending sickness.... even after all the diagnostic tests... there is sure a feature called God Only Knows, .. in the medical parlance! .. right? so, friend.. I have not used this .. as a pretext to avoid work.. or avoid a contact.
