*FIRST, THIS IS NOT DIRECTED AT ANYONE FROM SF. IT IS IN DIRECT REFERENCE TO ANOTHER PERSON AT A DIFFERENT SITE. Why do people feel the need to create drama and search so desperately for attention, by making horrible things up about themselves on depression forums? I understand that sometimes when a person is miserable and feels that no one cares about them it can be a way to test limits, to make sure that someone out there really does care. I think that there are also people out there that just seem to have nothing better to do. This post is not meant to offend anyone or to imply in any way that the posts here are not truly genuine. I believe that there are a lot of people out there that rely on places like this for the support that they can't find else where. I commend the ones who make places like this available to us. Thank you. I have a friend, from another site that is constantly coming up with new and horrific things that are or have happened to them. I have grown very close to this person over the last year, and it is so hard for me to limit contact to try and diffuse these situations. I just have enough bad things going on in my life right now that I am not up to dealing with the bullshit. I receive text and voice mails of the crisis as they occur quite often. They have these events happen to them only to make dramatic miracle recoveries. The thing is that I know that they are lying to others on the site and this disturbs me greatly. I am not sure how to handle this. Do I openly confront them on the site? I don't want to risk that chance of sending them over the edge, knowing that this can be a delicate matter. Do I send the Admin. a private text telling them of my information? What is the "right" way to handle this? I just know from experience how someone going through things can have a domino effect on a community. I don't want to see others spiral because of one person's need for attention. If you have any suggestions I would really appriciate them.
