I wish I knew Greek…

Right now I’m wishing I knew enough Latin Greek to coin the name of a new phobia, whose definition would be, “the irrational fear that other people are leading more enjoyable lives than you are.”

Perhaps there’s a complicated German word for it. If they can invent schadenfreude and weltenschaung, they must have something handy for this occasion…
