No, I am not asking for medical advice this time.

Your asking for specifics about disorders and clarifications. I have no idea and I guess most folk here wouldn’t either. If your confused by your google then it’s time to talk to your doctor.


That makes sense, my bad!

You can have delusions of grandeur but not be psychotic.

The only problem is that one (or more) delusions falls under the broad definition of psychosis.
