19 Things To Know About Munchausen Syndrome By Proxy
Victims of child abuse cases such as MSbP suffer psychologically.
Children who have a parent with Munchausen syndrome by proxy experience a lot of psychological issues. Some of them become Munchausen syndrome patients as adults. If they received positive attention from hospital staff and other people for being perceived as sickly, they might want to continue to embrace the sick role throughout their life. On the contrary, some MSbP victims avoid hospitals and medical treatment at all costs. This might be because going to the hospital triggers them with negative childhood memories. This can also be harmful because they can miss out on necessary medical treatment to get better if they are very ill.
