Quantcast

Why do some people try to gain sympathy by pretending to have debilitating illnesses when we all know they aren't sick at all....just seeking attention.

If they are really sick that's a different story but there are always a few who pretend to be sick just for attention...

    I know someone who is suspected by many to have pulled this pathetic stunt just last week! What a loser!

    Munchausen syndrome is a mental disorder in which a person fakes illness to gain attention and sympathy.

    There was a major woman on SH who did this. When confronted by close friends she "suddenly" died.

    Hmmmm. I don't know. I've only (luckily) known of one person who said they had cancer and did not. To this day don't know of her motive....I imagine it was just for sympathy.

    No. Someone I am acquainted with in person. I don't know of anyone here that has done that. There was one "fake death" a year or so ago...and I've forgotten her name too! It was confirmed by several that she was still alive and had faked it. Do you know of any here now doing a fake sickness?

    If we're talking about the same person. She was healed over night to end up on life support shortly thereafter, and than ultimately died because too many confronted her.

    Indeed. This person cause a lot of hurt feelings because of course many discovered it was a farce and as her friend they couldn't understand why she would do this. She faked her illness for a long time and even had her 'daughter write for her', finally her 'husband' declared [joyfully] her death keeping her status on her Profile Married. She only faked her death because many began to confront her. I note she is still on people's Top List because they didn't catch on. Sad because she obviously has a mental disorder.

    Sadly, most of them are just attention seeking pond-scum, who think they should be treated like ,royalty, when they are not, so far from it. They are sick, sick people, and they do not care who they hurt in the process of gaining sympathy! They are always claiming to be "the victim". They never own up to taking personal responsibility for their own BAD behavior.

    Some people refuse to believe that people will continuously lie to them, I see it over and over again, here on SH and on the internet. And immediately after they have been lied to AGAIN, they fall for the next lie, thinking what? It will never happen again? It floors me.

    How many fake deaths. and fake illnesses, and fake teenagers that have had survived cancer so many times, and been 16 years old for over 15 months, do we have to go through?

    The lies that some have to tell to make themselves feel good, is very indicative at how SAD and SORRY their REAL lives must be, to fabricate such FICTION!

    agree....I guess it depends on who they r but mostly what they do....I had a friend who wanted attention, so she lied that her mother died, that her auntie hits her, and that she was pregnant...when I caught her in the lie she was shocked...but the next day she continued her lie like nothing happened....tsk tsk tsk....
