Ahhhh friend problems...help?

So one of my best friends has this compulsive lying problem. She can't. Stop. Lying. And the thing is she never tells us she's lying though we clearly know she is. I don't know what to do!! I really like her and want to still be friends with her but I can't if all she does is make up bizarre stories about her family or her family's friends or her new 'boyfriend' or who she hooked up with this past weekend. AHHH like when we try to confront her she yells at us and denies it and tells us that she's rather be friends with those made up people anyway and if we ever say something like that again we can't be friends anymore....any suggestions as to what we (my other friends and i) should do?? Thxx

Just have a meeting with your others friends first to talk it over. Just ask each other if she can actually be helped. Just tell her that if she doesn't stop lying you can't be friends with her because you don't know if it's true or not. Hopefully she will understand and try to stop.

leave her for a week or more to see how she reacts to that...

The next time she makes up a lie, say "And I'm pregnant." Then she'll be like, "huh?" And you'll say, "I thought we were talking about things that weren't true."

You can try to find out what is going on in her home life that she feels that she needs to lie.
