As many of you know, in cyberspace you really never know what is true and what is not.  This is especially true in the forums... you cannot always believe what one person says is true or not.  While we should try to be empathetic to others, it is not like the real world where you know first hand someone's problems or experiences.  The following is a link about people that fake illness online:
