The thing is even lying about mental illness and making up a personality disorder isn’t a healthy behaviour that people of sound mind do. If you regret your actions then your safest bet is to start again and be honest about where you’re at to get some help that’s actually appropriate for you. Compulsive lying isn’t a normal behaviour and feeling the need to do that to get your family off your back is pretty much the worst way. You could have been learning how to better set your boundaries and form the relationship that YOU need instead of how to avoid them behind a smoke screen.
