Mine has a habit of coming up with devastating stories when she is in trouble. One time I was bringing her to the police station because she had just been busted stealing alcohol from us and giving it to a friend, on the way she was crying and told me she was raped when we were on vacation. This seemed to come out of left field and I was devastated. Something just didn't seem right though and when I checked her cell phone records, she was on the phone the entire time this supposedly happened. And when I checked through her phone there was a picture of a boy on there with his pants down while we were on vacation. My belief is that she lied to make me feel guilty so she wouldn't get in trouble. Now, yesterday she was sitting on the couch crying and I asked her what was wrong and to talk to me. She said everything was wrong and she needed to see a counselor. I thought, this is it!! She is hitting rock bottom!!! No, she tells me she saw two of her friends get shot last week and she cannot get the images out of her mind. Huh?? Well, went surfing trying to find info and I cannot find a single thing saying that anyone was shot last week, especially in the area she claimed. This is downright scary. Could she be trying to manipulate the situation (which doesn't surprise me at all), or is she psychotic?? Does any one else's do this??
