Default Wanting to get cancer?

Hey guys I know this is a weird topic but do you sometimes feel like getting cancer? I dunno for me I think that if i get it people would notice me more.People will focus their time on me rather than being ignored in real life.I know that it is VERY selfish.But hey it's just a thought

sidenote: It would be a fuckin scary coincidence if sometime in my life i would get it -_-

What is wrong with you? There's a lot of ways to get people's attention. I think I get why people ignore you so much.

This seems like the worst idea for getting attention, tbh.

You know, I'll be the first one to say that I hear ya. And yes, I have felt like that before. I would just love to get cancer, or some other terminal illness, or be hit by a bus, or injured in some freak accident just so people would praise me and love me more than they do.
Wanting attention is normal, but I think there's a line between wanting the affection and attention of others, and exploiting attention from others. Because when it comes down to it, getting cancer or being hit by a car would honestly really suck. There's a lot better ways towards getting attention, and hey, even just saying "I'm lonely and not in a good place" can work.

If you wanna talk, I'm here to listen.

I know you want people to notice you more, but I think if you started receiving more attention because you got cancer, you would rather be cancer free and maybe not as noticed

Yeah, sure, people will notice you more but you'd probably be dying, losing all your hair, vomiting, enduring painful treatments, etc.

Want people to notice you more? Get out there and be social and involve yourself in other people's lives, don't just sit there wishing for something that is so amazingly stupid and belittling of what other people are going through. People with cancer want to survive so they can live their lives. They don't want to have a disease without a real cure. I know someone who faked having cancer to get attention and it was disgusting.

If you honestly feel this way, I'd recommend speaking to a therapist so you can come up with a more healthy idea of how to get more attention rather than exploiting people's emotions because it's horribly toxic and manipulative.

If you want people to be interested, you have to be interesting.

I understand what you mean. Though I don't actively wish I would get cancer, I've gone through times where I thought maybe things would just be easier if I had some sort of illness. It seems like an easy way of getting lots of attention and love and even an opportunity to life live to the fullest because, fuck it, you're dying. But it's not. There are so many different ways to get positive attention from others, even if it won't be the same heartfelt stuff you might hear if you had a terminal illness. Just be a good, kind person. Give others attention and they're likely to give it back to you. I don't know if you've ever noticed this, but people tend to respond how you give. So, if you're very touchy feely with one friend, they'll probably be touchy feely with you. But if you have another friend that you are very quiet to and never touch, they'll probably do the same. So try giving some of the people in your life some of the attention you think they deserve and it will make you feel better for acknowledging them and hopefully they'll turn around and do the same.
I'm sorry you feel like this, I hope my post helped. If you ever need someone to talk to, my PM box is open.

I kind of understand where you are coming from. I used to "want" to get an illness because I felt like something was always wrong with me, now I know it's my depression/anxiety. I hoped that getting a terminal illness would be a way out of my pain... like if I did die it wouldn't be from suicide. it's twisted thinking, but nonetheless something I once thought.

That's pretty sick to be honest. I've lost family members to cancer and seen the horrible effects it had on them. I would never wish it upon anybody. To want to get cancer just for attention is disgusting and disrespectful.

It is completely understandable, people may not understand it but then again people don't understand a lot of mental health issues.
