Affluenza, I have it.

"It" being that everpresent and maddening sensation of being chased by the distorted sense of our "poverty", materialism, and desire for success. It costs money to make money, your neighbor's house will always be bigger, and the next big fashion trend is always on the horizon.

A production team in Seattle created the term. The irony is, the cure is to plop myself down on my overpriced Danish furniture, turn on my Godzilla sized Wega TV, and zone out to PBS. Retail therapy might be easier...ha ha ha.
