When someone does this online, do you think it is probable that they are mentally ill?
I am sure that there are people that make up stuff online, harmless stuff, for the fun of it. Not a big deal, but when someone makes up tragic things for attention, do you think they are probably just sick? For example, going onto a pregnancy board and talking about struggling to conceive, talking about all the heartache she and DH are going through, making up stories about miscarriages, when you know for a fact that she doesn't even have a boyfriend, never mind married.
I just figure that you have to be mentally ill, not just an ass, to play on the sympathies of women that are actually going through it.
There have been stories about people going online and saying they have cancer, or their kids do, only to find out later that they don't. Actually, I know someone IRL that lied about having cancer.....just f'd up.
Do you know anyone online or IRL that does that crap? If you know them from CM, please don't say names. I am talking in general, from anywhere.
