I'm beggining to think that I am a pathological liar,
and possibly clinically depressed. I was diagnosed as having manic depression, adhd, and anti-social with
psychotic tendecies(or something like that) during my
early teen years, and I was put on quite a bit of medi-
cation. Now, 7 years later, I'm 19, and I've been off
of my medication for 4 years..and I don't think I've
changed at all. I have constant bouts of depression,
but they come and go in matters of minutes, and when
it isnt happening, I'm just fine and dandy. I don't
have low self-esteem, I have a great life. I'm married,
I have a 2 year old daughter with another on the way,
not to mention a great job that I really enjoy. But I
can't seem to stop being depressed like this. It doesnt
seem to have any real reason behind, so I try to
convince myself that nothing is wrong, but I still get
so upset about it. On top of all of this, I think my
adhd is getting worse(I thought it went away as you got
older), as I can't sit still at all, im always picking
at things and such. And Im starting to believe that im
a pathological liar. I'm taking really close care not
to lie about anything here, as I really want to get
some help. It's starting to cause problems with my wife
and I, and I don't want anything to come between us.
It's generally just small insignificant things I lie
about to impress people, and it works really well. I
just tell funny stories about myself, things I've done,
and such, but from time to time I find myself in the
middle of big lies, I once convinced my girlfriend(were married now, but werent at the time) that I had
cheated on her while she was visiting some family. A
lot of times I tell her stories about women coming up
to me and talking to me, and I not being able to help
but hang out with them for awhile, sometimes I even
provide peices of paper with fake name and phone numbers on them. I really dont know why I do these
things, and I can't seem to stop it, I don't really
realise im doing it until its too late. And then I dont
want to look stupid and say, No, that was just a joke
to hurt your feelings dear. What can I do about this?
I've been to a few behavioural facilities, and a stress
center before, when I was younger. But I lost my
tricare medical insurance when I got married, so that
isnt an option anymore, it's way too expensive. I cant
seem to talk to anyone in person about it, or if I do
I just end up making up stupid stories and then I dont
get any real help. I would really appreciate anything
you guys can tell me.
