can someone be a pathological liar and bi-polar. she says untrue lies about everyone. when she tell a story she embellishes it so much that it isn't the same story anymore. She is also a huge drama queen. she plays sympathy on family members by saying she wants to hurt herself. But the next day she is laughing and having fun. She has been on medication and is seeing a psychiatrist for a while but has not changed. she seams worse.

I am sorry that you are dealing with this. I bet you have your hands full. Especially with the lieing part. I don't understand what people get out of it other than making everything more spectacular than it is. Stretching the truth a bit.

Does she lie to you? Or just to other people? Can you trust her is what I am wondering? I agree that she does need help, and getting her to a psychiatrist or therapist is about the best thing that you can do. But you got to get her to admit that she has been lieing to people or she wont get any help. Though a good therapist can usually see that kind of behavior.

Best wishes to you. I hope that this goes smoothly for you.

Hugs, Karen

Agree with above advice.

She is supposed to be seeing a psychiatrist, but is she, and is she telling the truth there? Is she taking the meds right? Thats really her responsibility, but maybe, MAYBE thats it. Its hard to walk in someone else's shoes.

Suicide should never be taken lightly. She should have been instructed as to what to do if she feels this happening. You can't imagine how terrifying these thoughts are. She needs someone to stay or be with her, make sure dangerous things like pills and things she could hurt herself on are not right there, and could be impulsively picked up. The ER is the best place for her.

As far as one day being suicidal, then the next day on top of the world, that is the nature of Bipolar. Mood swings. She may not be faking at all.

The lying is getting on your nerves, along with the drama. It would anybody. Deep down, I think you care. With further evaluation and treatment she will return to a nicer person.
