Unusual belief amnesty

Get your unusual beliefs/delusions off your chest and let us know how you deal with them.

For me, I believe there’s spirits in psych wards that do stuff along with the medical staff. For the most part, this doesn’t affect me as I haven’t been on a psych ward for some time. But it’s still there as an unusual belief.

once in a kids psych ward, i prayed for an evil spirit to leave me, then right after that there was a code blue in the hospital. I still want to believe it was related.

For a long time I thought the universe was putting me on the path to be a Zen Master.

I also thought I could heal people by laying on of hands…

I’ve been struggling with the belief that I can predict the future.

There is a few others that have grown into a huge complex story in my head… It just keeps weaving it’s self through my brain and I have to keep working to weed it out.

Im trapped in a community that actively keeps me here and the only person(my ma) that can pull me out is being manipulated by a cult.

I am a American that has rights …but who cares right?

This is why I sound pissed off in my posts im sorry …I don’t mean for it to carry over, …it just does.

I need medication …indica would be preferred

It seems they also let criminals in the mental wards. Not good when one is psychotic and paranoid. The added stress almost killed me.

I have a past life(s) delusion. I have conscious memories of various different lives. Some are positive, some are very dark and scary. They seem so real, the realist delusion yet, but I cannot and should not believe in them because they are irrational, impossible as we know of, and they go against my religion.

Im not killing anyone yet so I think i’m doing pretty good …the voices would have me doing something else,have you seen the news? Those people are just like me …BUT …they SNAPPED.

Are you actually on meds? I’m confused?

Yea im on meds just not the usual stuff that you guys are on …I kinda do my own thing,I don’t like putting synthetic meds in my body.

Here’s an oxymoron: my delusions are real. People tell me they’re delusions, but they’re not.

I was like that for 2 years, it really doesn’t sound like it’s working out for you, like it didn’t work out for me. You have to tell a doctor what’s going on. You could end up harming yourself or others. You don’t want that.

The neo-cognitivists (like Marsha Linehan, Stephen Hayes, George Eifert, Stanley Block, Jon Kabat-Zin, Mark Williams, et al) all agree that the thoughts are thoughts, and they are “there.” But they have all developed psychotherapies that make it possible to see that the content of the (actual) thoughts is not always actual.

This is the bedrock of the success of the mindfulness-based cognitive psychotherapies, like…

I would NEVER harm another ,not EVER.

Psychosis is involuntarily, and you end up in a world you think is real that isn’t. I thought I couldn’t die, and was a few hours away from testing my theory before the cops hospitalised me.

Edit: consider meds before something like that or worse happens to you.

thanks for the advice, ill take it to heart…
