What are the most Common Delusions you’ve heard of or experienced with SZ? I’m sure this has been covered here, but can’t find anything on it.

Religious / the occult probably. Paranoia too.


Definitely paranoia, thinking people or organizations are out to get you and can read your mind and infiltrate your brain/thoughts.


Paranoia (CIA, neighbours, aliens…) and grandiose (I’m God, I’m the President or related to him, I’m Jesus…).


Grandeur. When someone compliments me in real life I’ll try to become the best at it at the expense of everything/everyone else, including my own health sometimes :frowning:


Paranoia. Thoughts about being watched\monitored or that someone/thing/organisation is out to get me. Doesn’t help I have had encountered actual real events where this has happened.

Paranoid mostly

I would say mind reading paranoia, grandiose religious delusions, and conspiracy delusions.


My paranoid conspiracy theory became so big i just cant care about it anymore… i still think i nailed it and my mind seems satisfied with it enough it just doesnt worry about it anymore…

hmm hooo ahhh


complete sentence

ALL intelligence agencies.
God or god-like beings.
hidden messages in media
believing the medicine we need for sz/sza is really poison


Thinking you’re the next messiah/God, thinking the government is spying on you and out to get you for x reason are the two major ones I think.


Delusions of Grandeur and Delusions of inferiority.

After my doc treats me just about 5 months more he’ll be able to put in the new pool he’s always wanted.

The only thing that keeps me going in life is that Andy Dick is ten times more screwed up than I am. It makes me feel good.


Paranoia and auditory hallucinations. The hearing people happens daily but it’s harmless and I’ve grown to be very used to it. But my paranoia is most frequent with heating cars or people at my apartment complex or driving in my car like I’m being followed.

Parnoid. Religious. They are pretty common. Thinking people are out to get you or your special…or both. It doesn’t descriminate!

I get delusions of thought insertion and control as well as persecution (thought my mom in law was trying to poison me).
