What have been some of your delusions? (I believed I was being gang stalked by police for many months I also thought I was possessed at one point)

      capgrass, paranoia (mostly involving men wanting to hurt me or sexually assult me), possession, angels speaking to me, cameras being hidden in my room (I think my sister had a hand in this since she would tell me there were cameras in my teddy bear growing up), and that I was certian fictional characters in a past life.

      I've literally had the same delusion that someone is in love with me like four times and a few times multiple people are in love with me at the same time. I thought I was schizophrenic because it just kept coming back but reading into that specific type of delusion (erotomania), and talking to my therapist, it's apparently pretty common for people with bipolar especially when it cycles like that and its with different people each time 🤷‍♀️

      Someone had hacked my phone (mentor, government agency, Illuminati) as was showing me how to transition. In reality it was the devil guiding me into his own trap. Coming to certain mental conclusions could kill me. My girlfriend was placed into my life by scientists. All the hot nurses were tests. I would write things in my notes app if my phone. Quit it. Go back and there would be a response. Whatever I wrote in my phone notes would then happen around me.

      I thought I was being followed because I kept hearing (auditory hallucination) cans klinking together in the trees

      For 6 months I could hear Metallica playing in my house. Another time I saw elephants dancing out of my wall

      For me it was FBI. They were going to meet me in a cul-de-sac by my house. I got dressed as if I was a queen undercover and walked myself to this random cul-de-sac. I just waited for a random car to pick me up. So dangerous. Thank God I walked back home and am now on medication 🙏

      I have bipolar disorder and narcolepsy. I have audio hallucinations from my narcolepsy. I do have the feeling of bugs biting me. I don't know if that is a hallucination or a nerve problem

      Before I went on my meds I had a fear that the police were going to get me and put me away for a crime I didn't commit. I would be like looking out my windows.

        @Buffy4ever for a while I thought I was being gangstalked by police and was constantly afraid of them

      I got Very into the whole witch/spirituality thing and ended up stealing herbs at my work for rituals (luckily wasn't caught). Brought crystals with me everywhere. I thought I was "spirituality powerful" enough to potentially control wind and see into the future. I also felt the presence of George Harrison in my room near the end of that particular episode.. it was definitely something, but at least it wasn't based in anxiety

        @x_sillymasterrr I thought that Elliott Smith was in my room, after going through the whole summer thinking that I was a reincarnation of him (even though he died the year after I was born) while also believing that while he was alive that he had written all of his songs for me, very contridicting lmao I'm a bit conflicted on my spirituality cuz I was raised with witchcraft and the occult but before I started experiencing mania and psychosis I never believed that I was someone famous in a past life or that I was a god or that I could manipulate people with my mind so I feel like while my spirituality intensifies during mania, I still have to believe that spirituality is apart of me 🤷‍♀️

          @toebeabs But then again bipolar runs in the family and my gma still believes her ex husband is following her and psychologically torturing her so idk I'm an agnostic I guess lol

        @x_sillymasterrr I got really into spirituality and witchcraft too. Thought I was seeing fae and creatures and spirits all the time. Thought I could control wind or it was talking to me. Saw giant once in the forest.

      one time I got this idea that a guy in a smoke shop had the hots for me. I'd go in there to buy my husband's cigarettes and one time I made an invitation to my birthday party and gave it to him. He was so flustered. I don't know if he even read English but he went into the back area and a woman came out. Neither of them spoke English very well but I figured out by then that he hadn't been flirting with me. I got out of there and never set foot in there again. Looking back, I wonder about myself 🤣🤣🤣 Depending on whether it's depression, mania or mixed, I either think everyone wants me or everyone is laughing at me. I've never figured out a good solution except to avoid people. I'm doing better on meds but old habits linger. I still tend to isolate

      Twice I swore I was pregnant. Once when I was on the pill so I might have been but the other time I wasn't even having sex. I kept buying pregnancy tests because I knew I had to be. 😂 Mostly my psychotic episodes are of the paranoid type though. People talking about me and laughing when I'm in a restaurant, husband plans on leaving me, landlord is going to rape me....stuff like that. When I'm manic though, I get delusions that I can do projects, mostly for other people with a deadline, that are totally unrealistic. Like sew a wedding dress in a week or paint every room in the house in 2 days

        @wabe I’ve had that experience of hearing seeing people laugh and make fun of me at restaurants and be really paranoid of tht. Thought this really nice massage lady worker my mom got me a gift card for was going to rape me even though I knew in the back of my mind there was no possibility of it.

      I use to think people were in the back of my car and hiding wanting to attack me

    • Kate1985

      I believe I’m the victim of psychic vampires (my parents), that I was Scota and danu, and that I need soul retrieval. I have no idea this shit is false as it’s occuring. I’m addicted to mania and am an alcoholic. I’m truly powerless over my illness and am going nowhere in my life.

        @Kate1985 I hope that you are okay I send you lots of peace and love and joy and your life is important

      I thought I was the person with the highest IQ in the world. I recognized that I was psychotic but believed I understood my brain so well that my psychosis couldn’t effect me and instead was manifesting itself into reality (which is weirdly backwards and circular).

      • Calypso_

        598d

        @Xovil it’s interesting how most of the time we are aware we are in a psychotic state but it’s almost as if it’s in the awareness for it is in the background compared to our symptoms/delusions being in the foreground

        • Xovil

          598d

          @Calypso_ Right, I remember knowing what I was thinking was crazy and unbelievable. It felt as if I had some proof of the delusions without being able to put that proof into words for others to understand. When I would try to explain what I was believing at the time, I could feel that my words weren’t convincing and made little sense but still believed in it.. sort of like when you understand a complicated concept but aren’t well versed enough to put it into words no matter how hard you try.
