"LIARS" ...of the Normals

They call the mentally ill…“crazy” but why do so many “sane” people LIE thru their teeth? Not little lies. but WHOPPERS? why?


I wish I knew why people lie, it’s only hurts everyone.


I really don’t know the answer to that but I believe it is simply a habit that is formed and once established hard to stop.


I don’t know how they keep their stories straight!

I can’t remember a short grocery list…
or to even remember to bring the list to the store!!

Tell the truth…
one less thing to keep track of.

And with our family members so sensitive to lies, what a mistake it would be and how hurtful to them.

Yes, its too hard to keep track if its not the truth. Recently I either said or wrote to someone that we had been dealing with Jeb’s scz for 18 years - not so- its 16 years. He’s 36, not 38, that’s the age of his sibling.
