Recognizing types of delusions...

Postby farmerjohn1324 » Sun Sep 07, 2014 9:49 pm

What can I do when I experience these types of delusions?

Paranoia - thinking that people are talking about me or judging me

Grandiose - thining that I am high and mighty and superior to others due to higher intelligence

Erotamania - thinking that every time a girl looks at me, she must be displaying some kind of sexual interest (not "love", but sexual interest)

Guilt - thinking that my driving is holding up traffic, when in reality, the traffic is just slow

Does anyone also experience this type of stuff?

I do! For example, sometimes I feel guilty for breathing because I take other people's oxygen and I feel guilty for eating because I am eating food other people could use more.... it gets so extreme that I just sit and cry uncontrollably for hours at times.

EDIT: and also paranoia. I always asume 99% of people hate me for no reason :shock:

I am sorry that you experience those symptoms.

I don't hate you, and I would say it's safe to assume that neither does 99.9% of the population, unless there is someone that you may have pissed off.

You shouldn't feel guilty about breathing or eating. There is plenty of oxygen to go around. Plants make more of it every day. There is no shortage.

And about food, sure there are shortages of food in places, but that doesn't make it your fault. Do you think you should starve? I don't think so.

Could stopping to eat because you think you're too good to do that be a delusion of grandeur then? Or does it have nothing to do with the thing?

For each one I get the gut feeling that it's happening and then I keep reminding myself "what are the chances"

If there are reasonable chances that it could be "real" then I stay prepared for further evidence but don't act until I have it unless acting would cause no harm.

If you think you are seeing signs of interest from someone there are polite ways to engage often and feel out the situation.

For some annoying reason my brain always comes with "arguments" to support my delusions so I'll be like: okay, what are the odds these people ACTUALLY are conspiring against me to harm me? and then my brain'll be like "yeah you know they are because the Higher Power told you. You can't disobey the Higher Power now can you? also you know because you Know and those who Know can't not know soooo really I have to be right." and I really don't know what to do about that because then I'll actually believe it... :oops: :oops:
