Hypoperformance Anxiety Syndrome

My suggestion for a new diagnosis for the upcoming American Psychiatric Associations' Medicare coding criteria, DSM-V:

Hypoperformance Anxiety Syndrome (HPAS)


Axis I: An acute state of unrest, sleeplessness, and agitation caused by Pay for Performance measures which are no longer measuring productivity while on vacation.

Yes, I know, I'm leaving out Axis II...
