Just for attention?

Do you have a family member or friend that would do absolutely ANYTHING to get attention? Good or bad attention that is...
What is the worst case you have encountered? What did you do?

  • My sister is a HUGE hypochondriac. Every family get-together we get vivid details of her latest illness, subsequent doctor visits and treatments. I've just learned to avoid her.

  • Sounds like my whole family.... One of the many reasons I avoid them.

  • We had a teenage family member consistantly fake pregnancies for attention. Nobody believed her when she really did get pregnant.. She becamew very envious of the attention showered on someone having a baby. She wound up getting pregnant twice, for attention, and gave both babies up. She refused to let anyone in the family adopt them. At that point I cut off all contact with her. Most everyone else has too.

  • A couple of people in my family, one of my cousins in particular. She is always telling stories and getting tripped up in her lies. I feel kind of bad for her if anything.
