I have a 15-year-old daughter who creates fantasy lives for herself via the internet. She creates posts giving completely false info along with false pictures of herself. This has been going on for at least a year and everytime I think she has stopped I find it again. Tonight I found a letter to a male and she has clearly told him she has a child, which she doesn\'t. An example of another lie was that she was raped twice and her brother was now in prison for killing one of the rapists. All of this is completely ficticious. We are middle class living in a residential neighborhood and she attended parochial grade school. She has always been an attention seeker but this seems very far over the edge & what is the point. You could never hope to meet these people because of the lies you\'ve told. She has been seeing a psychiatrist for over a year now. The 1st one she had we stopped seeing after 9 months because there was no progress & I believe my daughter had the therapist snowed. She now has a new one who tested her for ADD, which she has severely. She is now on medicine for this and I guess I thought it was the magic bullet-clearly not. She is also on prozac for depression by the family doctor. I guess my question is, is there a disorder where people lie for attention (to create drama that doesn\'t exist) and if so what is it called. I would like to point her psychiatrist in the right direction, and yes he is aware of all of this. I truly feel like she is headed for an institution as an adult, please help.
