1.
A psychological illness that usually affects poor people found in Hawaii and other islands.

Island Fever is the realization that you are stuck on which ever island you are living and not going anywhere.

Sure, you can take a plane to Asia, United States and Europe if you have the money to pay for it. Most beach bums do not have it so they are stuck on Oahu.

Sure you can take a plane to Maui, Lanai, etc... But getting the money (around $100 RT) is also a problem too. Besides, don't forget SSDI... Same Sh*t, Different Island.
People who live on mainlands have trouble understanding Island Fever because they can hop on a cheap bus or train and travel to many different countries. While people in Oahu are stuck on a rock the size of Chicago.

2.
The sad and dismal realization that you are stuck on whatever Hawaiian Island you live on; in this case, Oahu. While Island Fever is extremely detrimental to one's mental health, there is always going to be that one idiot who claims said island is "da best place to go cruise and do wutevas". And they are, unknowingly, adding fuel to the fire that is Island Fever. And, you know, they're also unknowingly about to get punched in the face.
Person unaffected by Island Fever: "It's not that bad, guys! We can go to the beach all the time! And everything's so close!"
Person affected by Island Fever: "Seriously? Dude, shut the fuck up before I punch you in the throat."
