    Lying disorders??

    Hi, there. So I’m gonna start off with a little about myself. I’ve got a few mental problems like social anxiety and depression. My psychologist (when I was seeing her- I’m not now) told me that my lying habit (the reason I went to see her in the first place) was a symptom of social anxiety. I want people to accept me, therefore, I make myself up. Now I’m in a relationship with a wonderful man and have been since May of 2014. The whole relationship has been stressed because he believes that I cheated on him in the first three months. I’ve of course denied it every time because it’s simply not true. But he has recently been able to prove to me that some of the other things I *know* are true are lies that I’ve told myself. Could I really have cheated on this man? I love him. He can’t trust me and it strains our relationship so much. Should I end it and work on myself? Is it even possible to lie to yourself and believe it so adamantly? How can I trust myself? I don’t know what to do…

    To my knowledge, social anx and depression do not cause someone to lie about themselves. They may fail to reveal something about themselves that they think will be a turn-off. If you don’t remember cheating on him, I don’t think you did, unless you have a split personality.
