One nurse was in for a surprise when the patient actually told them that she didn’t want to go to school for a week, so she decided to fake an illness instead. She was 17 years old, and her parents were worried that she was refusing to eat.

Fake it until you make it

Apparently, she was also having seizures every few minutes. The nurses ran all the tests they usually would until they learned the truth about her imaginary illness. In the end, they had to prescribe her sugar tablets, and her parents demanded that she was kept in for four days.
