Patient : Is there a disease for living in your head which is connected to compulsive lying. I do not know how much I messed up. I have lied to everyone in my life. Most often I lie about something that is actually bad. Such as, someone dying dramatically. It's not just a pity lie though I create these aleborate stories and memories with these characters. I am able to cry over them I feel the pain of it all. I can't stop. I try and try again, but I can't. It would give me some closure to know there is a reason why I do this. It's a battle between my brain of what is the truth and what isn't. I have been doing it for as long as I can remember.
