These 17 People Are Faking Their Mental Illnesses Because...
Mental Illness affects a person's lifestyle much differently than any physical disorder. The desire to have a functioning mind that is free from abnormalities is what everyone facing depression, bipolar disorder, and PTDS (to name a few) want. It's a slap in the face when people fake these orders for attention or other instances in which they acquire personal gain. But there are people out there who do just that and continue to live a life without regrets.

Peer pressure at it's finest.
