{062} hypo.

The hypochondria thing is, to her, quite real, and as a result, she philosophically claims she doesn’t want anyone to know about her sicknesses, even though she’s always complaining about them openly. It would be “embarrassing” if people were to “pity” her and give her “handouts” simply because she was unhealthy all the time; she doesn’t want to be a “charity case,” she says. But with one hand dramatically covering her eyes and the other one waving away well-wishers, if you looked close enough, you’d see that her eyes are always open, sneaking glances at who might be coming down the corridor, bringing flowers and chocolates, or whatever it is that people give sick folks.
