"pseudologia fantastica"
Pathological lying is considered a mental illness. Pathological lying can be described as an addiction to lying. Psychotherapy appears to be one of the only methods to treat a person suffering from pathological lying. No research has been performed regarding the use of pharmaceutical medication to treat pathological liars. Some research suggests that certain people may have a “predisposition to lying”.
Pathological lying is a complex phenomenon, differing from other mental illnesses. It has many life-changing consequences for those who must live with the illness. Currently, there is not enough research in the area of pathological lying to guarantee a cure
The stories told are not entirely improbable and often have some element of truth. They are not a manifestation of delusion or some broader type of psychosis: upon confrontation, the teller can admit them to be untrue, even if unwillingly.
The fabricative tendency is long lasting; it is not provoked by the immediate situation or social pressure as much as it is an innate trait of the personality.
A definitely internal, not an external, motive for the behavior can be discerned clinically: e.g., long-lasting extortion or habitual spousal battery might cause a person to lie repeatedly, without the lying being a pathological symptom.[2]
The stories told tend toward presenting the liar favorably. For example, the person might be presented as being fantastically brave, knowing or being related to many famous people.

Are you making your kids sick, calling 911 because you're secretly poisoning them to get attention for your pathetic self? Because Maunchhausen's and pathological lying go hand in hand. It's good you recognize it in yourself. Get yourself to the psych center before you hurt someone. Maybe your spouse, if they're still breathing can take the kids somewhere safe away from you before you hurt them. Good luck.

He would lie just to lie...I remember once his mother looked right at him and said "You would lie when the truth would serve you better".

Everyone has dated someone like this! I think the post had more to do with criminal mentality? Psychology nonsense to explain there's no cure for constant lying? What else is new

Take heart. You could be intelligent enough to be a serial killer.

I know somebody with this so called disease!! He's been like this for 35 years and nobody has been able to figure out why he does what he does! Most people think if you make them go to rehab, it'll all just go away, but that's not what happens. Who ever it is going to the rehab has to have the will to stop doing what they do or it will not work!!! Most addicts who go to rehab do nothing but find, or meet more addicts to support there own habits! THAT'S A PROVEN FACT!!!! And then you throw heroin on all that.... Here's your results!!! An uncontrollable addiction

I know a whole family built on lies, their work is based on lies and they think it is okay because they have money ( money that isn't accounted for). Sad how the father is trying to leave a legacy and his daughters are sluts and his wife spends all the money. Hellooooooo!!! Don't you know that you have a sex offender who likes to look at CHILD!!! Porn in your home and work!!!? Must be really stupid to believe a sex offender over the courts and the fact that he faced jail time and plead guilty, makes me think that they all like it. I know its so immature of me to say it on topix, but they cant handle the truth, or face to face convos. Hope all your lives are miserable forever and the fact that you have a grandchild that you don't know the father because of your sluty daughter. I don't care what anyone says. Lying is not a disease, its a lifestyle.

Jessica Satterlee....perfect example of a pathological liar. I truly believe it is an illness. She lies when there is absolutely no reason for her to lie. She lies to get out of her lies. It's a vicious circle that never ends. So many people have tried to help her. Her compulsive lying is just the beginning of that poor girls problems. She'll soon be out of jail (if she isn't already) so brace yourselves people. Her on the loose is NOT a good thing.

It's amazing how women who are jealous of other women who stole or slept with their men are suddenly medically capable of diagnosing people. You didn't even graduate high school so I can't imagine you ever got to medical school. I'm guessing the closest you got was the free clinic. Guess what? You forgot your free birth control. Now we will be the poor people who will be paying your welfare!
