Idea: A new mental disorder diagnosis
Many people are already familiar with the disorder known as Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy. This is a form of mistreatment where a caregiver, usually a mother, pretends that a child has an illness, and the child is subjected to all sorts of unnecessary testing and treatments, just so the mother can get some attention.
But what about a child who pretends that his mother has Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy, just so he can get some attention? I submit that this child shall be diagnosed as having Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy by Proxy.
Look for it in the DSM-V.
