Why would she lie about having cancer?

Reddit View
July 25, 2019

A strange moment last night.

I'm sitting at the bar getting a little buzz on celebrating a promotion I received at work with the girl I've been dating.

I'm telling her a story when she puts her hand on my knee and says..."There is something I need to tell you"

She goes quiet for a moment and says the doctor she saw on Monday "found a little bit of cancer on my left breast".

Turns out after pushing her on it and asking how she knows 100%, she backpedals and said she doesn't actually know if it is and that she doesn't actually have cancer.

It was weird as shit and really threw me off. Especially how she made a dramatic show out of it. This is the second time she's pulled something wired. I brought her on a work trip and she accepted a drink from a stranger. I thought she got roofied by the way she was acting and after a 4am hospital visit, they said she had a kidney infection.

I told her I watched my mom go through chemo and stage 4 breast cancer and she can't joke around about that shit.

Now I am questioning the "kidney infection" and think I have a chick who is either a hypochondriac or uses some fucked up tactics as a cry for attention and affection.

Have you encountered this behavior before? What did you do about it?

It takes a special kind of crazy to stop someone midsentence and talk some crazy shit. She is what I call.. a watcher. Sits and watches u and ur movements all day while u think u are having a good time

[–]Better_when_Im_drunk7 points8 points  (0 children) | Copy

I call girls like that “FUN COPS”. She saw you having fun; celebrating your promotion, which really has nothing to do with her. The spotlight was off of her for just a moment: to her that’s just a moment too long. Complete selfishness, to a crazy degree. “Watcher” is also a good name for it. Nice. This old guy I know has a great joke: why do women always have their eyes closed while they’re having sex? Because they can’t stand to see a guy having a good time.

Unless she bad

Disappear faster than panties in porn. This one is batshit crazy.

[–]Blaze-Bless12 points13 points  (0 children) | Copy

Gonna use this one 👌

Munchausen's Syndrome - she likes the attention and sympathy she gets.

[–]Project_Zero_Betas6 points7 points  (5 children) | Copy

Can confirm.

[–]ScratchinCommander 1 points [recovered]  (4 children) | Copy

Literally just watched a House episode about the patient with this syndrome.

[–]impulsexer0020 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Ahahah the first thing that came to my mind

[–]Project_Zero_Betas-3 points-2 points  (2 children) | Copy

One of my parents has it and went along with this crazy girl from my past delusions to have me certified as borderline schizophrenic because one of her beta orbiters was stalking her while I was earning a second graduate degree. Other peoples mental illnesses robbed me of my life, it's a terrible disease.

[–]evenfurtherbeyond51111 points12 points  (1 child) | Copy

Punctuation please. We’re not animals.

[–]Project_Zero_Betas0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Where was my grammar incorrect?

[–]1FixYourselfFirst79 points80 points  (3 children) | Copy

Women love attention. She was jealous of the attention you were getting from your promotion.

[–]EnlightenedViking[S] 32 points33 points  (1 child) | Copy

This is now what I think happened on the work trip. She wore a sexy dress out to a place that is full of sexy women and I don't think she was getting the attention she thought she deserved. Next, she starts acting all weird and goes downhill fast. 2 hours later she is surrounded by firefighters on our hotel bed getting all the attention she can handle.

I never did fully confirm that a kidney infection can make you act like you are roofied. But I had a sneaking suspicion she had an ulterior motive

[–]NightTripInsights3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

If unfit, whether by over or under eating with kidney issues you will have a bad time for sure. Both the kidneys and renal and endocrine system can wreck you on and off for years if never fixed and being unfit complicates the symptoms and bouts of delirium and passing out can happen. It will start affecting your hormones over time too.

If you're fit and eat healthy somewhat regularly you still get symptoms but more with your circulation, electrolyte levels, minor metabolism damage, among others but you can live somewhat ok until you can afford treatment which is still necessary.

Still, she sounds full of drama and lying about cancer is really uncool.

[–]Rimefang2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

One girl cried and I helped her clean up a mess. Afterwards, she started avoiding me like she was scared of me.

[–]golgynat0r36 points37 points  (1 child) | Copy

Run as fast as you can, she could 'get pregnant' really fast.

[–]lifeonlockdown7 points8 points  (0 children) | Copy

OP needs to put on an Oscar worthy acting performance until she gets her next period, THEN run as fast as he can.

[–]Tiway2214 points15 points  (0 children) | Copy

The fuck are you doing? Ghost her asap.

[–]JA90NFA 1 points [recovered]  (1 child) | Copy

Do you not think it's obvious that you gotta next this crazy bitch?

[–]TFWnoLTR6 points7 points  (0 children) | Copy

He obviously knows if hes posting about it here, but denial is one hell of a drug when you dont have abundance.

[–]F_Dingo10 points11 points  (0 children) | Copy

she backpedals and said she doesn't actually know if it is and that she doesn't actually have cancer... I brought her on a work trip and she accepted a drink from a stranger...

Ya sounds like you should avoid her. She is not playing life with a full deck of cards.

[–]IceBear---6920 points21 points  (0 children) | Copy

"She accepted a drink from a stranger"

Grounds for dismissal right there. Women who really dig you would be petrified of losing you. Of course they're going to push the boundaries further & further if you don't enforce them.

I noticed these types of girls that blatantly lie about something serious like this, they're usually blond white girls who live in rural or countryside areas. Usually in the low to lower mid socioeconomic class, they often dye their hair pink and have a slight 'emo' subculture appearance.

These girls, lie, cheat, steal, are lazy and generally have shit jobs with no college education. They cheat with a LOT of guys, more then your average unfaithful Jane Doe. Their main goal is to get a man who will pay for everything, this is where getting pregnant is a excellent personal choice to trap the man.

Does any of what I listed above appear in the girl your talking about? If so, I'd feel pretty good about my analysis lol.

[–]ogkushinjapan4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy

The last girl I met who’s like this told me her dad died 2 mins after meeting her lol. She then tried to claim sexual harassment on me after I rejected her advances.

[–]EnlightenedViking[S] 2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy

white upper middle class sorority girl

[–]Project_Zero_Betas3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

LMFAO The Sub-Human type. She's legit psychotic, hard next.

Dump her yesterday! And also do some self reflection as to why you are attracted to someone like this.

[–]idontevenlift374 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy

Promotion = success. Success = higher SMV. Higher SMV = more attention from other girls. She’s doesn’t want you going anywhere. Lying about cancer is pretty fucked up, even without your families history with it. Might want to hard next this girl. And girls will lie about anything, doesn’t matter what it is.

[–]CassWCD2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

attention. didn’t need to read the details, the answer is attention

[–]Carboneraser2 points3 points  (2 children) | Copy

It's called Munchausen syndrome or disorder. They feign illness for attention, sympathy and other "perks" that those with actual illnesses would get.

Those who suffer from Munchausen often move onto Munchausen by proxy. this is the practice of feigning the illness of somebody else or intentionally making them sick to reap the same types of social benefits. It is common among new mothers.

It is not unheard of for mother's to moderately poison, drown, starve, suffocate, freeze and in a case I studied, microwave their child to produce symptoms of illness. Wouldn't it be great if I could make my newborn near-death so I can post about it online and people can finally see how hard my life has been.

Yup, my mom has this. She used a crazy girl from my past's connection with law enforcement and my cunt aunt to have me certified as borderline schizophrenic because one of the crazy girls beta orbiters was on the verge of killing himself (He actually did end up pulling the trigger, while I was in the midst of earning my second graduate degree, but, you know, details). My mom and this girls mental illnesses robbed me of a clean record and continues to harass me almost a decade later. People with mental illness can be legit horrible humans.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

She might have Munchausen's, might want to have her see a therapist if this comes up again.

[–]ToiletPaperPringles2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Please run as far away as possible. Hard next.

[–]moderateVegan_AMA1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

She couldn't handle that the spotlight was on you so the crazy cunt had to invent something disastrous about her narcissistic pathetic self. She's a loser - ghost her and change your locks.

[–]cdh10031 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Seriously, if she'd lie about that kind of stuff, what wouldn't she lie about?

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Sounds like this person is seriously mentally ill. I would run for the hills.

[–]fartt1231 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I know this one all too well. I know someone that faked her illness and used it against her husband when she got caught in her lies. She portrayed herself as weak and unable to take care of herself. She was very manipulative and got the husband to cook, clean, take care of the kids and work, all the while she stayed home. If anyone defended the husband she would just faint and go to hospital and comeback with nothing wrong with her. Husband then became very protective of her. She was still the victim in the house and the husband very bad. Some of these bitches are relentless. You give them an inch and they will throw you off.

[–]rambler4291 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

ATTENTION! That's why.

[–]Snowaey1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

stop worrying about her, next

[–]RealTimeRelationship1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

so many people here are telling you to get away from her as soon as possible,

but we know you won't.

[–]shubhidoobi1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Hard next and ghost.

[–]Besthater1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy


[–]Bear-With-Bit2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

It's a patient shit test. She's testing for you for your sympathy, protection, attention.

[–]187oddfuture0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

That’s when you pop smoke and ghost. She’s a drama queen and I honestly don’t know how you’re still with her if she makes light of something your mom suffered for so long.

[–]YouNeverKnowAnyone0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Ignore it from now on, when she tries to say shit tell her about all the times she lied. If shes just a plate it doesnt really matter what she says. If you're tired of her then get rid of her.

[–]that_italia_guy0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

That shit is pretty fucked up...to lie about cancer for attention or what ever. She is just trying to get money from you.

[–]menial_optimist0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Same reason anyone lies, to gain advantage. Should have asked her if you could feel for lumps to make sure she wasn't bullshitting.

[–]PimpinAce1750 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Probably a shit test to see if you care about her

[–]Sendmeloveletters0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

This happens, call BS. Low tier plate

[–]Stupyyy0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Manipulation 101

[–]THEMIDLANDMAN0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Not cancer but I had a former female friend who lied about chronic illnesses until I caught her red handed doing something her "illness" prevented her from doing. Paid a big part in my red pill conversion.

[–]KungfuCatcus0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Dick her down and get outta town.

[–]Brodin690 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

"found a little bit of cancer on my left breast". Lol I've taken too many pathology classes to know what she said is horseshit. Shoulda told her you have cervical cancer with a shit eating grin.

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
