Customer reply replied 7 months ago
He fits the descriptions of sociopaths i have read. he has gotten thousands of dollars from on excuses, and promises that never materialze. he has a patttern of lying and imaging since a child. he now lives in north carolina while i am in pennsylvania, so our contacts are via electronic methods and i cannot directly see vwhat is gping on.

He could be a drug user

a lot of the traits are similar

How can I help with this?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
i have no reason to suspect any drug use. i rather think it may be genetic, since he is an adopted child, and he had lying traits as a child.
Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 7 months ago

All you do is stop giving him money.

That's it

offer love and support but no money

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
