If he is the man of your life then YES you need to talk to him. If you don't talk to him about this problem then what good is he in the relationship? He should also be considered as your best friend. He will try his best to help you get through this. Do talk to him. You should not feel ashamed and keep it from him like a secret. There shouldn't even be secrets in the relationship the two of you share. Consider yourselves as a team. You get through things together because you not only love each other, but you also trust, care, and are honest with each other. Go talk to him. You will feel so much better after you do. He will help you get through this. Good luck.
The Holocaust profoundly affected it's survivors physically and emotionally. People who survived were extremely emaciated, and many experienced post traumatic stress for the rest of their lives.
anyone can be suicidal, if you or someone you know is thinking about suicide please call the Lifeline, a suicide hotline network at 1-800-273-TALK.
This can certainly happen more often than you think, but be careful! You have to be absolutely sure you are correct. Unless you have gone to the doctors with this friend of yours and heard the diagnosis then you'll never know for sure.
Some people fake illness' to get attention. It doesn't make them a bad person, but just one that feels they have not had much attention in their lives and without thinking they can lie about something to get that attention and before they know it they can be caught up in such a web of lies it's too late to back out without looking like a fool. Lying about a disease is not hard at all in this modern age because you can get a lot of info off the web on disease so the person that could be lying sounds quite legitimate when they are telling their friends a disease they may have. I know it seems cruel to you that a friend would do this to you, but if you put it into perspective as to why they are lying then you can deal with it.
Unfortunately, compulsive liars are hard people to know when to trust and not trust. It's just like that childhood story "Peter & The Wolf" ... if you cry wolf one too many times no one is going to hear them. The sad thing of it all is, if the compulsive liar really does have a severe illness this is when their friends will usually doubt them. Who could blame them!
AnswerYou cant, i live with a compulsive liar, the best thing you can do i help to accept she is a liar, the change has to come from within herself rather than through you! Tell her you know she is lying but don't accuse her it will make it worse.
Lying like this is most likely a symptom of a mental health issue. Bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, and delusional disorder all are possibilitiesfor this type of behavior. Be careful about what you read on forums. There are a lot of people with an opinion but without any medical knowledge of what they are writing about.
Mentally healthy people say things that aren't true on a regular basis but not about something this big. This may be attention seeking behavior but it is not in the normal range of behavior.
Encourage your friend to get help. Confronting the lies can cause your friend to explode or leave. Try to talk to the person during calm times about their need for help.
I am currently dealing with a long time family friend who says she has cancer. She has never let anyone go to the doctor with her but lies and says that others have gone. She recently started taking medication for bipolar and we can see the difference.
If this person can prove they can subsist on their own then there is no reason they can't have their own freedom. Many mentally challenged people live on their own (perhaps some will have someone come in to check on them every so often and this can be done through the State Law or by the family themselves.) If the person is not severely handicapped mentally, then they should be pushed to be as independent as possible. Sometimes people have a habit of babying the mentally challenged and deciding what is best for that person. Take a look around. There are Olympics for the mentally disabled, and many other functions and some even work. If one chooses to take the time to study the mentally challenged they will realize they are a lot more capable of many things than most of us give them credit for. Marcy
